Fine-Granularity Transmission Distortion Modeling for Video Packet Scheduling Over Mesh Networks
Packet scheduling is a critical component in multi-session video streaming over mesh networks. Different video packets have different levels of contribution to the overall video presentation quality at the receiver side. ...
Modification, Degradation, and Stability of Polymeric Surfaces Treated with Reactive Plasmas
(Journal of Polymer Science: Part A: Polymer Chemistry, 2000)
The degradation, modification, and stability of polymeric surfaces exposed to chemically reactive O2 and H2O-vapor plasmas were investigated. Specifically, the effects of these plasmas on etching rate, surface morphology, ...
Energy-Aware Portable Video Communication System Design for Wildlife Activity Monitoring
In this paper, we introduce our recent research and development effort on energy-efficient portable video communication system design for wildlife activity monitoring. The capability of seeing what an animal sees in the ...
The interface between the stellar wind and interstellar medium around R Cassiopeiae revealed by far-infrared imaging
The circumstellar dust shells of intermediate initial-mass (about 1 to 8 solar masses) evolved stars are generated by copious mass loss during the asymptotic giant branch phase. The density structure of their circumstellar ...
The Origins Billions Star Survey: Galactic Explorer
(The Astronomical Society of the Pacific, 2006)
The Origins Billions Star Survey is a mission concept addressing the astrophysics of extrasolar planets, Galactic structure, the Galactic halo and tidal streams, the Local Group and local supercluster of galaxies, dark ...
Post-Newtonian Reference Frames for Advanced Theory of the Lunar Motion and a New Generation of Lunar Laser Ranging
We construct a set of post-Newtonian reference frames for a comprehensive study of the orbital dynamics and rotational motion of Moon and Earth by means of lunar laser ranging (LLR) with the precision of one millimeter. ...
