The STEM Behind BitCoin
Bitcoin has become the first major cryptocurrency that has caught the fancy of the world by storm lately. Behind the hood of Bitcoin are many STEM innovations that will affect the world beyond cryptocurrency. Bitcoin is ...
Querying Bitcoin Blockchain Using SQL
(Proceedings of the EDSIG Conference, 2018-11)
Bitcoin is the first major decentralized cryptocurrency with wide acceptance. A core technological innovation of Bitcoin is blockchain, a secure and pseudonymous general ledger that stores every Bitcoin transaction. ...
A Fuzzy Based Model for Standardized Sustainability Assessment of Photovoltaic Cells
In this paper, a new environmental sustainability indicator (ESI) is proposed to evaluate photovoltaic (PV) cells utilizing Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) principles. The proposed indicator is based on a model that employs a ...
Modeling Cumulative Defensive Resource Allocation against a Strategic Attacker in A Multi-Period Multi-Target Sequential Game
This paper fills a literature gap by investigating the strategic interactions between an attacker and a defender with a multi-period multi-target game. At each period, the defender allocates a limited amount of defensive ...
Improving AES Core Performance via An Advanced IBUS Protocol
(ACM Journal on Emerging Technologies in Computing, 2018-01)
Security is becoming a de-facto requirement of System-on-Chips (SoC), leading up to a significant share of circuit design cost. In this article, we propose an advanced SBUS protocol (ASBUS), to improve the data feeding ...
Towards High-Throughput and Low-Cost SoC Integration: A Case Study of Scalable Wrapper Designs on FPGAs
(IET Computers & Digital Techniques, 2018)
Exploiting Energy-Quality (E-Q) Tradeoffs: A Case Study of An Approximate FPGA Design
(IEEE Journal on Emerging and Selected Topics in Circuits and Systems, 2018)
The eﬀects of irregular shape on the particle stress of dilute suspensions
(Journal of Fluid Mechanics, 2018)
The irregular shape of particles in suspensions is typically approximated by simple geometries such as spheres or ellipsoids. We investigate the accuracy of such an approximation by comparing two irregular-shaped particles ...
MicroRNA Expression Patterns Responsible for Inducing Chemo-Resistance in Ovarian Cancer
(J. Biomed, 2018)
Despite significant progress in our understanding of the pathophysiology of cancer as a whole, ovarian cancer is still remains as one of the most intractable forms of the disease with only 30% cure rate with the conventional ...
CAN1 Arginine Permease Deficiency Extends Yeast Replicative Lifespan via Translational Activation of Stress Response Genes
Transcriptional regulation plays an important role in the control of gene expression during aging. However, translation efficiency likely plays an equally important role in determining protein abundance, but has been ...
