    Summary form only given. Since network backbones carry huge amounts of traffic, the failure of a single link can result in the loss of service, and consequently revenue. This is why backbone networks are required to be self-healing, and to survive failures. The survivability functionality has traditionally been provided using either restoration or protection techniques, where protection is the fas... View full abstract»

    Computer science is undergoing a revolution today, in which language designers are shifting attention from general purpose programming languages to so-called domain-specific languages (DSLs). General-purpose languages like Java, C#, C++, and C have long been the primary focus of language research. The idea was to create one language that would be better suited for programming than any other langua... View full abstract»

    Multi-core technology is a natural next step in delivering the benefits of Moore's law to computing platforms. On multi-core processors, the performance of many applications would be improved by parallel processing threads of codes using multi-threading techniques. This paper evaluates the performance of the multi-core Intel Xeon processors on the widely used basic linear algebra subprograms (BLAS... View full abstract»

    Partially runtime-reconfigurable devices allow tasks to be placed and removed dynamically at runtime. For real-time systems, tasks have to complete their work and also to meet their deadlines. It is important to decide at arrival time whether the real-time task could meet its deadline or not. Acceptance tests are concerned with determining whether the incoming task can meet its deadline or not. Th... View full abstract»

    Bergman has proposed an irrational number system where the golden ratio is used to be the base. The system has been improved by introducing a symmetrical concept to the representation, this new system is called ternary mirror-symmetrical number system. In this paper we are interested in parallel addition and subtraction problems. A modified version of on-the-fly architecture is applied to the syst... View full abstract»

    OFDM Wireless systems are currently in the focus of research and development. High hardware cost of such systems is an initiative to redesign the critical functional blocks in order to satisfy timing and power constrains as well as to minimize overall circuit complexity and cost. One such critical functional block is the CoOrdinate Rotation DIgital Computer (CORDIC) that can be used in various app... View full abstract»

    The Internet is moving from being a collection of applications toward a collection of services through the Web. Therefore, service oriented architecture (SOA) has become an active area of research and development. Web services as an example of SOA provide the integration of software applications in an incremental way, using existing platforms and languages that utilize and adapt to existing legacy...

    This paper presents a robust and precise eye detection algorithm on gray intensity face images. Our method combines the strength of two existing methods which are a feature based method and an appearance based method to detect and locate a precise pupil center. It includes the following three steps. First, the feature based method is used. The method uses a projection function to detect all possib... View full abstract»

    The goal of this paper is to optimize the array weighting in order to minimize the sidelobe level (SLL) of the phased array antenna without losing the beam width. The simulated antenna is linear array with 8 and 10 elements. Genetic algorithm has been used for the optimization process. The weights chosen to meet any specific criteria, the criterion is to minimize the sidelobe level with narrow bea... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a simplified fractal image compression algorithm which is implemented on a block by block basis. This algorithm achieves a compression ratio of up to 10 with a peak signal to noise ratio (PSNR) as high as 35 dB. The idea of the proposed algorithm is based on the segmentation of the image, first, into blocks to setup reference blocks. The image is then decomposed again into bloc... View full abstract»

    Face recognition is one of the most intensively studied topics in the field of computer vision and pattern recognition. Facial expression, which changes face geometry, usually has an adverse effect on the performance of a face recognition system. Also, the appearance of a face image is usually affected by illumination conditions that hinder the automatic face recognition process. In this paper, we... View full abstract»
