2018 Ieee Signal Processing Cup: Forensic Camera Model Identification Challenge, Michael Geiger Jun 2018

2018 Ieee Signal Processing Cup: Forensic Camera Model Identification Challenge, Michael Geiger

Honors Theses

The goal of this Senior Capstone Project was to lead Union College’s first ever Signal Processing Cup Team to compete in IEEE’s 2018 Signal Processing Cup Competition. This year’s competition was a forensic camera model identification challenge and was divided into two separate stages of competition: Open Competition and Final Competition. Participation in the Open Competition was open to any teams of undergraduate students, but the Final Competition was only open to the three finalists from Open Competition and is scheduled to be held at ICASSP 2018 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Teams that make it to the ...


Probabilistic Insertion, Deletion And Substitution Error Correction Using Markov Inference In Next Generation Sequencing Reads, Vahid Noroozi Jan 2016

Probabilistic Insertion, Deletion And Substitution Error Correction Using Markov Inference In Next Generation Sequencing Reads, Vahid Noroozi

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Error correction of noisy reads obtained from high-throughput DNA sequencers is an important problem since read quality significantly affects downstream analyses such as detection of genetic variation and the complexity and success of sequence assembly. Most of the current error correction algorithms are only capable of recovering substitution errors. In this work, Pindel, an algorithm that simultaneously corrects insertion, deletion and substitution errors in reads from next generation DNA sequencing platforms is presented. Pindel corrects insertion, deletion and substitution errors by modelling the sequencer output as emissions of an appropriately defined Hidden Markov Model (HMM). Reads are corrected to the ...


Green Cooperative Spectrum Sensing And Scheduling In Heterogeneous Cognitive Radio Networks, Abdulkadir Celik Jan 2016

Green Cooperative Spectrum Sensing And Scheduling In Heterogeneous Cognitive Radio Networks, Abdulkadir Celik

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The motivation behind the cognitive radio networks (CRNs) is rooted in scarcity of the radio spectrum and inefficiency of its management to meet the ever increasing high quality of service demands. Furthermore, information and communication technologies have limited and/or expensive energy resources and contribute significantly to the global carbon footprint. To alleviate these issues, energy efficient and energy harvesting (EEH) CRNs can harvest the required energy from ambient renewable sources while collecting the necessary bandwidth by discovering free spectrum for a minimized energy cost. Therefore, EEH-CRNs have potential to achieve green communications by enabling spectrum and energy self-sustaining networks ...


An Analogue Computer For Network Analyzer Stability Studies , Charles Melville Davis Jan 1954

An Analogue Computer For Network Analyzer Stability Studies , Charles Melville Davis

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

An electro-mechanical analogue computer has been described which simulates in conjunction with the 10-kc power amplifiers in the Network Analyzer the rotor inertia and the governor of a synchronous generator. The computer eliminates the need of tedious, time-consuming, step-by-step calculations in a transient stability problem and makes possible a more accurate analysis;The computer requires further development in order to maximize its capabilities and broaden the scope of inquiry possible with it. The application of the computer to non-linear problems outside the power system field is desirable and should be investigated.
