    Hybrid Resource Provisioning for Clouds

    Flexible resource provisioning, the assignment of Virtual Machines (VMs) to physical machine, is a key requirement for cloud computing. To achieve \"Provisioning Elasticity\", the cloud needs to manage its available resources on demand. Apriori, static, VM provisioning introduces no runtime overhead but fails to deal with unanticipated changes in resource...

    RF MEMS Suspended Band-Stop Resonator and Filter for Frequency and Bandwidth Continuous Fine Tuning

    Tunable band-stop resonators are the building block to produce tunable band-stop filters that can play an important role in wireless communication receivers. The authors can be used in adaptable image rejection receivers, or to tune out interfering signals at the RF stage of a receiving communications system. The proposed device...

    A Wirelessly Powered and Controlled Device for Optical Neural Control of Freely-Behaving Animals

    Optogenetics, the ability to use light to activate and silence specific neuron types within neural networks in vivo and in vitro, is revolutionizing neuroscientists' capacity to understand how defined neural circuit elements contribute to normal and pathological brain functions. Typically, awake behaving experiments are conducted by inserting an optical fiber...

    Dynamic Virtual AliEn Grid Sites on Nimbus With CernVM

    The authors describe the work on enabling one click deployment of Grid sites of AliEn Grid framework on the Nimbus 'Science clpud' at the University of Chicago. The integration of computing resources of the cloud with the resource pool of AliEn Grid is achieved by leveraging two mechanisms: the Nimbus...

    Fast polynomial multiplication on a GPU

    The authors present CUDA implementations of fast fourier transforms over finite fields. This allows them to develop GPU support for dense univariate polynomial multiplication leading to speedup factors in the range 21 - 37 with respect to the best serial C-code available to them, for their largest input data sets....

    Exploring CLOUD Computing for DOE's Scientific Mission

    Cloud computing is gaining traction in the commercial world, with companies like Amazon, Google, and Yahoo offering pay-to-play cycles to help organizations meet cyclical demands for extra computing power. But can such an approach also meet the computing and data storage demands of the nation's scientific community? A new $32...
