A Framework System To Connect Children With Nearby Nature

Roberta Marmer McConochie
Arguably the most savvy of any generation, today's children reside in a state of "Nature Deficit Disorder" (Louv (2005). Though programs approach the problem, children's current condition presents challenges beyond those of landscape architecture and allied professional practices. Currently, there is no comprehensive system to address the full range of children's developmental needs, nor to integrate needs with specific local resources. This thesis develops such a system, a framework to connect children and nature. Input...

Dynamic Sprites: Artistic Authoring of Interactive Animations

Ben Jones, Jovan Popovic, James McCann, Wilmot Li & Adam Bargteil
Traditional methods for creating dynamic objects and characters from static drawings involve careful tweaking of animation curves and/or simulation parameters. Sprite sheets offer a more drawing-centric solution, but they do not encode timing information or the logic that determines how objects should transition between poses and cannot generalize outside the given drawings. We present an approach for creating dynamic sprites that leverages sprite sheets while addressing these limitations. In our system, artists create a drawing,...

Fast simulation of mass-spring systems

Tiantian Liu, Adam W. Bargteil, James F. O'Brien & Ladislav Kavan
We describe a scheme for time integration of mass-spring systems that makes use of a solver based on block coordinate descent. This scheme provides a fast solution for classical linear (Hookean) springs. We express the widely used implicit Euler method as an energy minimization problem and introduce spring directions as auxiliary unknown variables. The system is globally linear in the node positions, and the non-linear terms involving the directions are strictly local. Because the global...

Basis enrichment and solid-fluid coupling for model-reduced fluid simulation

Dan Gerszewski, Ladislav Kavan, Peter-Pike Sloan & Adam W. Bargteil
We present several enhancements to model-reduced fluid simulation that allow improved simulation bases and two way solid-fluid coupling. Specifically, we present a basis enrichment scheme that allows us to combine data driven or artistically derived bases with more general analytic bases derived from Laplacian Eigenfunctions. We handle two-way solid-fluid coupling in a time-splitting fashion— we alternately timestep the fluid and rigid body simulators, while taking into account the effects of the fluid on the rigid...

Massera-Type Results For CN -Almost Automorphic Solutions Of Some Differential Equations

Valerie N. Nelson
We are concerned with the existence of C(n)-almost automorphic solutions of the equation (1) x'(t) = A(t)x(t) + f(t) where A(t) is a τ-periodic operator and f is C(n)-almost automorphic. In 1950, Massera proved that if the equation (2) x'(t)=Ax(t) + f(t) where f(t) is periodic and A is a constant n x n matrix, has a bounded solution on R+, then it has a periodic solution on all of R. This result has since...

Entity Type Recognition for Heterogeneous Semantic Graphs

Jennifer Sleeman, Tim Finin & Anupam Joshi
We describe an approach for identifying fine-grained entity types in heterogeneous data graphs that is effective for unstructured data or when the underlying ontologies or semantic schemas are unknown. Identifying fine-grained entity types, rather than a few high-level types, supports coreference resolution in heterogeneous graphs by reducing the number of possible coreference relations that must be considered. Big Data problems that involve integrating data from multiple sources can benefit from our approach when the data's...

Completing The Street: Revitalizing An Urban Corridor Using A Multimodal Framework

Folashade Shelton
Applying the concept of complete streets to the North Avenue corridor in Baltimore, MD this study looks at the integration of multiple modes on the corridor with the intent of encouraging non-motorized modes and improving safety along the corridor. North Avenue's current condition is that of necessary revitalization, through asset management and the introduction to a wider array of modes other than dominating the automobile. By advancing the roadway to a street where all users,...

Bridging the divide between neuroprosthetic design, tissue engineering and neurobiology

Jennie B. Leach, Anil Kumar H. Achyuta & Shashi K. Murthy
Neuroprosthetic devices have made a major impact in the treatment of a variety of disorders such as paralysis and stroke. However, a major impediment in the advancement of this technology is the challenge of maintaining device performance during chronic implantation (months to years) due to complex intrinsic host responses such as gliosis or glial scarring. The objective of this review is to bring together research communities in neurobiology, tissue engineering, and neuroprosthetics to address the...
