    • An Investigation Of The Role Of Nuclear Envelope Proteins On Actin Dynamics 

      Chen, Wei (2015-08-17)
      Actin is one of the most abundant proteins in eukaryotic cells. Actin structure and actin dynamics play a critical role in a variety of essential biological functions, including cell mobility, intracellular transport and ...
    • Failure Detection and Consensus in the Crash-Recovery Model 

      Aguilera, Marcos Kawazoe; Chen, Wei; Toueg, Sam (Cornell University, 1998-06)
      We study the problems of failure detection and consensus in asynchronous systems in which processes may crash and recover, and links may lose messages. We first propose new failure detectors that are particularly suitable ...
    • Heartbeat: A Timeout-Free Failure Detector for Quiescent ReliableCommunication 

      Aguilera, Marcos Kawazoe; Chen, Wei; Toueg, Sam (Cornell University, 1997-05)
      We study the problem of achieving reliable communication with quiescent algorithms (i.e., algorithms that eventually stop sending messages) in asynchronous systems with process crashes and lossy links. We first show that ...
    • Methods For High Dimensional Matrix Computation And Diagnostics Of Distributed System 

      Chen, Wei (2014-05-25)
      Big data provides opportunities, but also brings new challenges to modern scientific computing. In this thesis, we conduct sparse principal component analysis (SPCA) on high dimensional matrices. We propose a modified ...
    • On Quiescent Reliable Communication 

      Aguilera, Marcos Kawazoe; Chen, Wei; Toueg, Sam (Cornell University, 1998-06)
      We study the problem of achieving reliable communication with quiescent algorithms (i.e., algorithms that eventually stop sending messages) in asynchronous systems with process crashes and lossy links. We first show that ...
    • On the Weakest Failure Detector for Quiescent Reliable Communication 

      Aguilera, Marcos Kawazoe; Chen, Wei; Toueg, Sam (Cornell University, 1997-07)
      We consider the problem of achieving reliable communication with quiescent algorithms (i.e., algorithms that eventually stop sending messages) in asynchronous systems with process crashes and lossy links, and show that, ...
    • Quiescent Reliable Communication and Quiescent Consensus inPartitionable Networks 

      Aguilera, Marcos Kawazoe; Chen, Wei; Toueg, Sam (Cornell University, 1997-06)
      We consider partitionable networks with process crashes and lossy links, and focus on the problems of reliable communication and consensus for such networks. For both problems we seek algorithms that are quiescent, i.e., ...
