The impact of medium access delays on the packet servicetime in saturated ad hoc networks
(IEEE, 20101005)Medium Access Control (MAC) delays significantly increase the packet servicetime in saturated networks. As the number of contending nodes increases, the occurrence of collisions and crosstransmissions (CTs) also increases, ... 
Impact of riveting sequence, pitch and gap between sheets on quality of riveted lap joints
(200612)This thesis presents a study on the effect of controllable process parameters in riveting (i.e., such as the sequence of riveting, distance between rivets (pitch) and gap between sheets) on the quality of riveted lap ... 
Impact of topological characteristics on consensus building in multiagent systems
(IEEE, 201112)This paper represents a network of nodes as a graph and investigates the impact of topological characteristics on consensus building. The properties evaluated are the algebraic connectivity ratio, average path, average ... 
Implementation and evaluation of automotive child restraint systems in mass transit buses
(Wichita State University, 200812)Mass transportation systems and specifically bus systems are a key element of the national transportation network. Buses are one of the safest forms of transportation. Nonetheless, bus crashes resulting in occupant injuries ... 
Implementation of a channel selection algorithm using cognitive radios
(Wichita State University, 201105)With the increase of wireless devices, the wireless spectrum is becoming overloaded causing users to experience delays and performance degradation. Typically, a device will start transmitting data on a frequency and ... 
Implementation of coordinated multihop scheduling in OPNET
(OPNETWORK 2003, 200308)Quality of service is one of the major issues on which the networking world is concentrating today. While there are many different techniques that have been proposed to improve the quality of service (QoS), most of them ... 
Implementation of location identifier separation protocol (LISP) routing protocol in network simulator 2
(Wichita State University, 201405)The Internet, which has had an impact on almost every facet of our lives. It has grown at a rapid pace and devices connecting to in direct proportion, in turn increasing the routing tables. The Location Identifier Separation ... 
Implementation of secure Home Area Network in a smart grid
(Wichita State University, 201112)A smart gird improves reliability and efficiency of the power network by actively engaging with customers. Increasing demand for energy, availability of untapped renewable energy, and an aging electric grid infrastructure ... 
Implementing a Toffoli gate in an Nqubit linear nearest neighbor array
(Wichita State University. Graduate School, 20130508)Most proposals for quantum computers are based on linear nearest neighbor (LNN) arrangements where qubits only interact with neighbors. A Toffoli gate is a threequbit operation, which is used in many quantum applications ... 
Implementing a Toffoli gate in an nqubit linear nearest neighbor array
(Wichita State University. Graduate School, 20140425)Most proposals for quantum computers are based on linear nearest neighbor (LNN) arrangements where qubits only interact with neighbors. A Toffoli gate is a threequbit operation, which is used in many quantum applications ... 
Implementing gate operations between uncoupled qubits in linear nearest neighbor arrays using a learning algorithm
(Springer, 201307)We propose a new scheme to implement gate operations in a one dimensional linear nearest neighbor array, by using dynamic learning algorithm. This is accomplished by training quantum system using a back propagation technique, ... 
Importance of voltage reduction and optimal voltage setting during reactive power compensation
(IEEE, 201408)After reactive power compensation, voltagedependent loads, such as constant impedance and constant current loads, consume more power because of the increase in node voltage; therefore, customers pay more for their electricity ... 
An improved frequency estimator
(Wichita State University. Graduate School, 20090501)A novel method of estimating the differential delay of a sinusoidal signal is considered. The new method utilizes the Propagator Method (PM) which does not require the eigendecomposition of the crossspectral matrix (CSM) ...
