1. Lin, Chen-Hsuan. Design automation for circuit reliability and energy efficiency.

Degree: PhD, Electrical & Computer Engr, 2017, University of Illinois – Urbana-Champaign

This dissertation presents approaches to improve circuit reliability and energy efficiency from different angles, such as verification, logic synthesis, and functional unit design. A variety of algorithmic methods and heuristics are used in our approaches such as SAT solving, data mining, logic restructuring, and applied mathematics. Furthermore, the scalability of our approaches was taken into account while we developed our solutions. Experimental results show that our approaches offer the following advantages: 1) SAT-BAG can generate concise assertions that can always achieve 100% input space coverage. 2) C-Mine-DCT, compared to a recent publication, can achieve compatible performance with an additional 8% energy saving and 54x speedup for bigger benchmarks on average. 3) C-Mine-APR can achieve up to 13% more energy saving than C-Mine-DCT while confronting designs with more common cases. 4) CSL can achieve 6.5% NBTI delay reduction with merely 2.5% area overhead on average. 5) Our modulo functional units, compared to a previous approach, can achieve a 12.5% reduction in area and a 47.1% reduction in delay for a 32-bit mod-3 reducer. For modulo-15 and above, all of our modulo functional units have better area and delay than their previous counterparts.

2. Mistler, Brian. Bisociation and Second-Order Change Relationships Among Tolerance for Ambiguity, Sense of Humor, and Humor Styles.

Degree: PhD, Counseling Psychology - Psychology, 2009, University of Florida

Individual differences in Tolerance for Ambiguity (TFA) are important in predicting how people deal with data subject to multiple interpretations (ambiguity) in contexts including therapy and conflict resolution. This study examines models of humor based on bisociation and meta-pattern recognition, using humor variables to predict TFA, and implications/applications for therapy, second-order change, and future research. Using an unrestricted online sample of 691 adult participants it was found that higher levels of sense of humor were significantly associated with higher levels of TFA (Beta = .30; p < .001), even after controlling for social desirability. Adding humor styles (HS) to the regression model further increased predictive power. TFA was positively associated with Affiliative and Self-enhancing styles, and not associated with the 'potentially detrimental' styles (Aggressive and Self-defeating). The largest correlation with TFA occurred with Self-enhancing HS (r = .33, p < .01 ). Relationships between HS, social dominance, and TFA were also investigated. Constructivist and Gestalt therapists had higher levels of TFA than those with orientations based on rationalist assumptions. Results of a previous study relating humor to HS were replicated in expected directions. ( en ) Advisors/Committee Members: Neimeyer, Greg J. (committee chair), Berg, William K.
