  • Lower bounds for the complexity of the Hausdorff distance 

    Rucklidge, William J. (Cornell University, 1994-08)
    The Hausdorff distance is a similarity measure defined between sets in the plane. Algorithms to find the minimum distance as one set is transformed have been described, but few lower bounds are known. We describe new ...

  • Lower Bounds on String-Matching 

    Li, Ming (Cornell University, 1984-09)
    New techniques for obtaining lower bounds on string-matching problems are developed and we prove the following new results. String-matching cannot be performed by a three-head one-way deterministic finite automaton. This ...
  • Lower bounds on the convergence rates of adaptive MCMC methods 

    Schmidler, Scott; Woodard, Dawn B. (2011-01-11)
    We consider the convergence properties of recently proposed adaptive Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithms for approximation of high-dimensional integrals arising in Bayesian analysis and statistical mechanics. Despite ...
  • Lower Tails of Self-Similar Stable Processes

  • Lp-Based Approximation Algorithms For Scheduling And Inventory Management Problems 

    Cheung, Maurice (2012-05-27)
    There are two fundamental approaches for using linear programming in designing approximation algorithms: LP-rounding and the primal-dual method. In this thesis, we develop LP-based approximation algorithms for several ...

  • Lucretius and the fears of death 

    Aronoff, Peter (1997-08)
    The Epicureans argued that death was nothing to us and that we should not fear death, and this thesis takes up these arguments as they appear in our fullest extant source: Book 3 of Lucretius’s De Rerum Natura. After an ...

  • Lung abscess with complications in a lamb 

    Wright, Heather M. (2008-04-02)
    In most cases of uncomplicated pulmonary abscessation, long-term antibiotic therapy is successful in resolving the infection. However, complications, such as pneumo- and/or pyothorax, sepsis, and septic embolization of ...
