  • Topology Inference in Store, Code, and Forward Networks 

    Contributor:Larmore, Gregory;
    Date Submitted:2016-12
    This thesis presents a technique for active topology inference in store, code, and forward networks. Many techniques exist and are well suited for store-and-forward and cut-through switching. However, these simpler techniques ...
  • Beyond Cryptography : A Multi-layer Approach to Communication Privacy 

    Contributor:Gross, Nathaniel;
    Date Submitted:2016-05
    Recent developments in the field of physical-layer security are beginning to challenge commonly-held assumptions of how security can be obtained in a communication system. Conventional security practices almost always rely ...
  • Cancer screening and detection using terahertz dielectric spectroscopy 

    Contributor:Zubair, Kazi Sums;
    Date Submitted:2016-05
    The sensitivity of terahertz absorption to water, biological tissue structure content, and the degree of hydration of diseased tissues are exploited to distinguish between normal and malignant human skin tissues. This can ...
