71. An Efficient Sensitivity Analysis Method for Large Cloud Simulations
Topic: Modeling
Published: 7/4/2011
Author: Kevin L Mills
Abstract: We describe Koala, an infrastructure Cloud simulator inspired by the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). We conduct a sensitivity analysis of Koala, revealing eight behavioral dimensions, which are influenced significantly by six parameters. Our find ...

72. Thin Film Dynamics on a Prolate Ellipsoid with Application to the Cornea
Topic: Modeling
Published: 6/9/2011
Authors: Richard J Braun, R. Usha, Geoffrey B McFadden, T. A. Driscoll, L. P. Cook, P. E. King-Smith
Abstract: We study the flow of a thin fluid film on a prolate ellipsoid that is a good approximation to the shape of the human cornea. Two lubrication models for the dynamics of the film are studied in prolate spheroidal coordinates which are appropriate for ...

73. On Parameter Differentiation for Integral Representations of Associated Legendre Functions
Topic: Modeling
Published: 5/24/2011
Author: Howard S Cohl
Abstract: For integral representations of associated Legendre functions in terms of modified Bessel functions, we establish justification for differentiation under the integral sign with respect to parameters. With this justification, derivatives for associate ...

74. Assessing microscale heterogeneity in batches of reference materials using microbeam XRF
Topic: Modeling
Published: 5/17/2011
Authors: John L Molloy, John R Sieber
Abstract: Principal component analysis (PCA), microbeam X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (µXRF), and Monte Carlo simulations are used to illustrate a methodology for assessing the sample microheterogeneity for large sets of materials. PCA is demonstrated to de ...

75. Modeling queuing dynamics of TCP: a simple model and its empirical validation.
Topic: Modeling
Published: 5/6/2011
Authors: Daniel Ilya Genin, Anastase Nakassis
Abstract: Understanding queuing dynamics of TCP is important for correct router buffer sizing as well as for optimizing the performance of the TCP protocol itself. However, modeling of buffer content dynamics under TCP has received relatively little attent ...

76. Salient Local 3D Features for 3D Shape Retrieval
Topic: Modeling
Published: 4/7/2011
Authors: Afzal A Godil, Asim Wagan
Abstract: In this paper we describe a new formulation for the 3D salient local features based on the voxel grid inspired by the Scale Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT). We use it to identify the salient keypoints (invariant points) on a 3D voxelized model and ...

77. Onset of Morphological Instability in Two Binary Liquid Layers
Topic: Modeling
Published: 4/1/2011
Authors: Geoffrey B McFadden, Sam Ray Coriell, Aaron Lott
Abstract: We consider the linear stability of a horizontal fluid bilayer subject to vertical heating. The two layers consist of a binary fluid that has undergone a phase transition, resulting in a horizontal interphase boundary between two phases with differ ...

78. A General Model for the Dynamics of Cell Volume, Global Stability, and Optimal Control
Topic: Modeling
Published: 2/11/2011
Author: James D. Benson
Abstract: Cell volume and concentration regulation in the presence of changing extracellular environments has been studied for centuries, and recently a general nondimensional model was introduced that encompassed solute and solvent transmembrane flux for a wi ...

79. Stability Analysis of Several Non-dilute Multiple Solute Transport Equations
Topic: Modeling
Published: 1/4/2011
Author: James D. Benson
Abstract: Recently a new solute and solvent transmembrane cellular transport model accounting for non-dilute solute concentrations was introduced. This model depends on a second or third order polynomial expansion in mole fraction of Gibbs energy for solutes a ...

80. A Mathematical Model of Atmospheric Retention of Man-made CO_2 Emissions
Topic: Modeling
Published: 12/21/2010
Author: Bert W Rust
Abstract: Rust and Thijsse [Proc. CSC'07 (2007) pp. 10-16], [CiSE, Vol. 10 (2008) pp. 49-59] have shown that global annual average temperature anomalies T(t) vary linearly with atmospheric CO_2 concentrations c(t). The c(t) can be related to man-made CO_2 emi ...
