Application of Cybernetics and Control Theory for a New Paradigm in Cybersecurity
(Virginia Tech, 2013-11-01)
A significant limitation of current cyber security research and techniques is its reactive and applied nature. This leads to a continuous ‘cyber cycle’ of attackers scanning networks, developing exploits and attacking ...
Lantern Field: Exploring Participatory Design of a Communal, Spatially Responsive Installation
Lantern Field is a communal, site-specific installation that takes shape as a spatially responsive audio-visual field. The public participates in the creation of the installation, resulting in shared ownership of the work ...
Engineering News : Spring 2013
(Virginia Tech. College of Engineering, 2013)
College of Engineering researchers are continuing to work on a multi-university, nationwide project for the U.S. Navy that one day will put life-like autonomous robot jellyfish in waters around the world. Several sizes of ...

Predictive Eco-Cruise Control (ECC) System: Model Development, Modeling and Potential Benefits
(United States. Department of Transportation. Research and Innovative Technology Administration, 2013-02-19)
The research develops a reference model of a predictive eco-cruise control (ECC) system that intelligently modulates vehicle speed within a pre-set speed range to minimize vehicle fuel consumption levels using roadway ...
Pronounced hypoxia in the subventricular zone following traumatic brain injury and the neural stem/progenitor cell response
(Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine, 2013-07-04)
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) elicits identifiable changes within the adult subventricular zone (SVZ). Previously, we demonstrated that EphB3/ephrinB3 interaction inhibits neural stem/progenitor cell (NSPC) proliferation ...
Process Authentication for High System Assurance
(IEEE Computer Society, 2013-07-11)
This paper points out the need in modern operating system kernels for a process authentication mechanism, where a process of a user-level application proves its identity to the kernel. Process authentication is different ...
Pathology of non-thermal irreversible electroporation (N-TIRE)-induced ablation of the canine brain
(KOREAN SOC VETERINARY SCIENCE, 2013-12-01)
This study describes the neuropathologic features of normal canine brain ablated with non-thermal irreversible electroporation (N-TIRE). The parietal cerebral cortices of four dogs were treated with N-TIRE using a ...
Insights into mechanisms governing forest carbon response to nitrogen deposition: a model–data comparison using observed responses to nitrogen addition
(Copernicus Publications, 2013-06-17)
In many forest ecosystems, nitrogen (N) deposition enhances plant uptake of carbon dioxide, thus reducing climate warming from fossil fuel emissions. Therefore, accurately modeling how forest carbon (C) sequestration ...
