Performance Evaluation and Improvement of Computer Systems
Staff members: Prof
Clark Thomborson, Dr
Radu Nicolescu, Dr Enyou Li.
Performance analysis plays an important role in the design,
improvement and procurement of new computer systems. Our
research group has developed particular expertise in the following
- Benchmark measurements for cache parameter estimation, with
Dr Enyou Li (postdoc) and Yuanhua Yu (MSc student).
- Image processing for astronomical data, with Ching-Yi Tsai (MSc
- Axle distance estimation for
an Automatic Vehicle Classification (AVC) system in Indonesia, with
Petrus Mursanto (MSc 1999).
- Object request brokers, with M. Ta
(BTech 1998) and Dr Radu
Nicolescu, in collaboration with the HORB group.
- Models and efficient algorithms for
- The economics of information.
