Binary Exponential Backoff is Stable for High Arrival Rates
, 1999
"... Goodman, Greenberg, Madras and March gave a lower bound of n 1 8 n) for the maximum arriaval rate for which the nuser binary exponential backo protocol is stable. Thus, they showed that the protocol is stable as long as the arrival rate is at most n 120 n) . We improve the lower bound, showin ..."

Stability Of Binary Exponential Backoff
, 1988
"... Binary exponential backoff is a randomized protocol for regulating transmissions on a multiple access broadcast channel. Ethernet, a local area network, is built upon this protocol. The fundamental theoretical issue is stability: does the backlog of packets awaiting transmission remain bounded in ti ..."

in time, provided the rates of new packet arrivals are small enough? It is assumed n 2 stations share the channel, each having an infinite buffer where packets accumulate while the station attempts to transmit the first from the buffer. Here, it is established that binary exponential backoff is stable
Graphical models, exponential families, and variational inference
, 2008
"... The formalism of probabilistic graphical models provides a unifying framework for capturing complex dependencies among random variables, and building largescale multivariate statistical models. Graphical models have become a focus of research in many statistical, computational and mathematical fiel ..."

of probability distributions — are best studied in the general setting. Working with exponential family representations, and exploiting the conjugate duality between the cumulant function and the entropy for exponential families, we develop general variational representations of the problems of computing
Reducing Multiclass to Binary: A Unifying Approach for Margin Classifiers
 JOURNAL OF MACHINE LEARNING RESEARCH
, 2000
"... We present a unifying framework for studying the solution of multiclass categorization problems by reducing them to multiple binary problems that are then solved using a marginbased binary learning algorithm. The proposed framework unifies some of the most popular approaches in which each class ..."

A HighThroughput Path Metric for MultiHop Wireless Routing
, 2003
"... This paper presents the expected transmission count metric (ETX), which finds highthroughput paths on multihop wireless networks. ETX minimizes the expected total number of packet transmissions (including retransmissions) required to successfully deliver a packet to the ultimate destination. The E ..."

SelfSimilarity Through HighVariability: Statistical Analysis of Ethernet LAN Traffic at the Source Level
 IEEE/ACM TRANSACTIONS ON NETWORKING
, 1997
"... A number of recent empirical studies of traffic measurements from a variety of working packet networks have convincingly demonstrated that actual network traffic is selfsimilar or longrange dependent in nature (i.e., bursty over a wide range of time scales)  in sharp contrast to commonly made tr ..."

traffic modeling assumptions. In this paper, we provide a plausible physical explanation for the occurrence of selfsimilarity in LAN traffic. Our explanation is based on new convergence results for processes that exhibit high variability (i.e., infinite variance) and is supported by detailed statistical
KLEE: Unassisted and Automatic Generation of HighCoverage Tests for Complex Systems Programs
"... We present a new symbolic execution tool, KLEE, capable of automatically generating tests that achieve high coverage on a diverse set of complex and environmentallyintensive programs. We used KLEE to thoroughly check all 89 standalone programs in the GNU COREUTILS utility suite, which form the cor ..."

Good ErrorCorrecting Codes based on Very Sparse Matrices
, 1999
"... We study two families of errorcorrecting codes defined in terms of very sparse matrices. "MN" (MacKayNeal) codes are recently invented, and "Gallager codes" were first investigated in 1962, but appear to have been largely forgotten, in spite of their excellent properties. The ..."

. The decoding of both codes can be tackled with a practical sumproduct algorithm. We prove that these codes are "very good," in that sequences of codes exist which, when optimally decoded, achieve information rates up to the Shannon limit. This result holds not only for the binarysymmetric channel
Receiverdriven Layered Multicast
, 1996
"... State of the art, realtime, rateadaptive, multimedia applications adjust their transmission rate to match the available network capacity. Unfortunately, this sourcebased rateadaptation performs poorly in a heterogeneous multicast environment because there is no single target rate — the conflicti ..."

Models and issues in data stream systems

In this model, data does not take the form of persistent relations, but rather arrives in multiple, continuous, rapid, timevarying data streams. In addition to reviewing past work releva ..."
