1. Osborne, Nathaniel. Forest Harvest Residuals : A Composite Report of Five Years of Research in the Southern United States and Sweden.

Degree: Department of Forest Sciences; Helsingfors universitet, Agrikultur- och forstvetenskapliga fakulteten, Institutionen för skogsvetenskaper, 2013, University of Helsinki

Increasing fossil fuel prices, concerns about domestic energy security and demand for environmentally friendly, low carbon energy sources are renewing interest in using wood for energy. State and federal government have responded to increased interest with legislation that promotes renewable energy. Logging residues important role as an energy feedstock and environmental component has been a central topic of discussion for the growing forest energy sector in the United States. Over the last five years, I have studied forest harvest residues in the southern United States and abroad. My principle research focus has been the rapid inventory of residues, determination of their stocking and the identification of factors influencing that stocking. This composite report provides a detailed account of three studies based on five years of data in North Carolina, Georgia and southern Sweden. Provided in the report is an adapted method to inventory scattered and piled forest harvest residues, the relationship of harvest residues and harvest systems and a wood energy recovery rate for low end biomass within intensively managed loblolly pine forests. The goal of providing these studies is to contribute useful observations to the ongoing discussion about forest harvest residues and to provide a sampling framework others can employ to do similar studies.

2. Kang, U. Mining Tera-Scale Graphs: Theory, Engineering and Discoveries.

Degree: 2012, Carnegie Mellon University

How do we find patterns and anomalies, on graphs with billions of nodes and edges, which do not fit in memory? How to use parallelism for such Tera- or Peta-scale graphs? In this thesis, we propose PEGASUS, a large scale graph mining system implemented on the top of the HADOOP platform, the open source version of MAPREDUCE. PEGASUS includes algorithms which help us spot patterns and anomalous behaviors in large graphs. PEGASUS enables the structure analysis on large graphs. We unify many different structure analysis algorithms, including the analysis on connected components, PageRank, and radius/diameter, into a general primitive called GIM-V. GIM-V is highly optimized, achieving good scale-up on the number of edges and available machines. We discover surprising patterns using GIM-V, including the 7-degrees of separation in one of the largest publicly available Web graphs, with 7 billion edges. PEGASUS also enables the inference and the spectral analysis on large graphs. We design an efficient distributed belief propagation algorithm which infer the states of unlabeled nodes given a set of labeled nodes. We also develop an eigensolver for computing top k eigenvalues and eigenvectors of the adjacency matrices of very large graphs. We use the eigensolver to discover anomalous adult advertisers in the who-follows-whom Twitter graph with 3 billion edges. In addition, we develop an efficient tensor decomposition algorithm and use it to analyze a large knowledge base tensor. Finally, PEGASUS allows the management of large graphs. We propose efficient graph storage and indexing methods to answer graph mining queries quickly. We also develop an edge layout algorithm for better compressing graphs.

3. Tatsumi, Jason. On the Analysis and Design of Disturbance Rejecter.

Degree: MSin Electrical Engineering, Fenn College of Engineering, 2013, Cleveland State University

In this thesis, the impact of the disturbance rejecter concept and the enforced plant has been explored. In order for the active disturbance rejection controller (ADRC) to provide a reasonable alternative to the industry standard PID controller, it is necessary to develop tuning procedures capable of providing adequate performance with reasonable stability margins. A focus should be placed upon the disturbance rejecter, as it is the heart and soul of ADRC. In this thesis, transfer function analysis of the enforced plant has been performed to connect ADRC with the tools from classical control. The relationship between the gain parameter and observer bandwidth are studied to understand why higher bandwidths are attainable with smaller gains. A root locus technique demonstrates how the plant roots change with observer bandwidth. The Nyquist stability criterion is used to offer tuning methods that satisfy gain and phase margins and ensures a transient that satisfies a given damping requirement. A technique is offered to display the infinite radius encirclements of the Nyquist plot within a finite graph. Analysis is performed on why the controlled response is typically slower than desired and how to correct it. Advisors/Committee Members: Gao, Zhiqiang (Committee Chair).
