Better estimation of small sobol' sensitivity indices
Art B. Owen
Article No.: 11
A new method for estimating Sobol' indices is proposed. The new method makes use of 3 independent input vectors rather than the usual 2. It attains much greater accuracy on problems where the target Sobol' index is small, even outperforming some...
Consider a system of N identical hard spherical particles moving in a d-dimensional box and undergoing elastic, possibly multiparticle, collisions. We develop a new algorithm that recovers the precollision state from the...
Modeling BitTorrent-like systems with many classes of users
Wei-Cherng Liao, Fragkiskos Papadopoulos, Konstantinos Psounis, Constantinos Psomas
Article No.: 13
BitTorrent is one of the most successful peer-to-peer systems. Researchers have studied a number of aspects of the system, including its scalability, performance, efficiency and fairness. However, the complexity of the system has forced most prior...
Characterizing per-application network traffic using entropy
Vladislav Petkov, Ram Rajagopal, Katia Obraczka
Article No.: 14
The Internet has been evolving into a more heterogeneous internetwork with diverse new applications imposing more stringent bandwidth and QoS requirements. Already new applications such as YouTube, Hulu, and Netflix are consuming a large fraction...
