    • Information Theory With Large Alphabets And Source Coding Error Exponents 

      Kelly, Benjamin (2011-08-31)
      The early twenty-first century has been referred to as the 'information age'; this appears to be an apt name given the massive amounts of data that are created daily. However, the utility of the data is limited by the tools ...
    • Information Topology of Kinetic Models of Metabolism 

      Huang, Lei (2017-01-30)
      Interpreting mathematical models in general as functions that map parameters to model behaviors (for example, how reaction rates depend on reactant concentrations, or how protein concentrations depend on time), and ...
    • Information-Flow Security for Interactive Programs 

      O'Neill, Kevin R.; Clarkson, Michael R.; Chong, Stephen (Cornell University, 2006-04-17)
      Interactive programs allow users to engage in input and output throughout execution. The ubiquity of such programs motivates the development of models for reasoning about their information-flow security, yet no such ...
    • An Information-Theoretic Study of Cooperation in Networks 

      Dabora, Ron (2007-04-30)
      This thesis presents a study of cooperation in networks using the tools of information theory. We first review the basic network models, with an emphasis on the relay channel, as this is the most basic configuration of ...

    • Infrared Constraints On Ultraviolet Theories 

      Tsai, Yu-hsin (2012-08-20)
      While our current paradigm of particle physics, the Standard Model (SM), has been extremely successful at explaining experiments, it is theoretically incomplete and must be embedded into a larger framework. In this thesis, ...
    • Infrared video of a warm water surface in the presence and absence of surfactant monolayers 

      Bower, S. M.; Saylor, J. R. (2009-10-19)
      Infrared (IR) videos are presented which show a warm water surface undergoing convective processes. These fluid dynamics videos show the water surface with: 1) no surfactant monolayer material present, 2) a liquid-phase ...
    • An Infrastructure for Open-Architecture Digital Libraries 

      Lagoze, Carl; Payette, Sandra (Cornell University, 1998-06)
      A digital library is a managed collection of digital objects and services that support the storage, discovery, retrieval, and preservation of those objects. We describe an open architecture in which core digital library ...

    • The Inherent Cost of Achieving Causal Consistency 

      Critchlow, Carol M. (Cornell University, 1992-05)
      We consider the problem of distinguishing causally-consistent global states in asynchronous distributed systems. Such states are fundamental to asynchronous systems, because they correspond to possible simultaneous global ...
