AbstractThe Named Data Networking (NDN) is a new Internet architecture that changes the network semantic from packet delivery to content retrieval and promises benefits in areas such as content distribution, security, mobility support, and application development. While the basic NDN architecture applies to any network environment, local area networks (LANs) are of particular interest because of their prevalence on the Internet and the relatively low barrier to deployment. In this dissertation, I design NDN protocols and implement NDN software, to make NDN communication in LAN robust and efficient. My contributions include: (a) a forwarding behavior specification required on every NDN node; (b) a secure and efficient self-learning strategy for switched Ethernet, which discovers available contents via occasional flooding, so that the network can operate without manual configuration, and does not require a routing protocol or a centralized controller; (c) NDN-NIC, a network interface card that performs name-based packet filtering, to reduce CPU overhead and power consumption of the main system during broadcast communication on shared media; (d) the NDN Link Protocol (NDNLP), which allows the forwarding plane to add hop-by-hop headers, and provides a fragmentation-reassembly feature so that large NDN packets can be sent directly over Ethernet with limited MTU.

Fuzzy adaptive recurrent counterpropagation neural networks: A neural network architecture for qualitative modeling and real-time simulation of dynamic processes.Pan, YaDung. (The University of Arizona., 1995)In this dissertation, a new artificial neural network (ANN) architecture called fuzzy adaptive recurrent counterpropagation neural network (FARCNN) is presented. FARCNNs can be directly synthesized from a set of training data, making system behavioral learning extremely fast. FARCNNs can be applied directly and effectively to model both static and dynamic system behavior based on observed input/output behavioral patterns alone without need of knowing anything about the internal structure of the system under study. The FARCNN architecture is derived from the methodology of fuzzy inductive reasoning and a basic form of counterpropagation neural networks (CNNs) for efficient implementation of finite state machines. Analog signals are converted to fuzzy signals by use of a new type of fuzzy A/D converter, thereby keeping the size of the Kohonen layer of the CNN manageably small. Fuzzy inferencing is accomplished by an application-independent feedforward network trained by means of backpropagation. Global feedback is used to represent full system dynamics. The FARCNN architecture combines the advantages of the quantitative approach (neural network) with that of the qualitative approach (fuzzy logic) as an efficient autonomous system modeling methodology. It also makes the simulation of mixed quantitative and qualitative models more feasible. In simulation experiments, we shall show that FARCNNs can be applied directly and easily to different types of systems, including static continuous nonlinear systems, discrete sequential systems, and as part of large dynamic continuous nonlinear control systems, embedding the FARCNN into much larger industry-sized quantitative models, even permitting a feedback structure to be placed around the FARCNN.
The Implications for Network Switch Design in a Networked FTI Data Acquisition SystemCranley, Nikki; ACRA Control (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2011-10)Switches are a critical component in any networked FTI data acquisition system in order to allow the forwarding of data from the DAU to the target destination devices such as the network recorder, PCM gateways, or ground station. Commercial off the shelf switches cannot meet the harsh operating conditions of FTI. This paper describes a hardware implementation of a crossbar switching architecture that meets the reliability and performance requirements of FTI equipment. Moreover, by combining the crossbar architecture with filtering techniques, the switch can be configured to achieve sophisticated forwarding operations. By way of illustration, a Gigabit network tap application is used to demonstrate the fundamental concepts of switching, forwarding, crossbar architecture, and filtering.
Dynamics of Advice Network and Knowledge Contribution: A Longitudinal Social Network AnalysisLee, Changheon (The University of Arizona., 2012)Online communities have become an increasingly popular channel for social interaction, enabling knowledge and opinion sharing across a board range of topics and contexts. Their viability and sustainability depends largely on contributions from community members in terms of time, resources, and knowledge. However, how individuals' knowledge contribution behavior changes over time and what network structural characteristics influence individuals' contribution behavior is not well understood. This study investigates "co-evolution" of social networks (i.e. advice network) and knowledge contribution behavior thorough a lens of social selection and social influence mechanism. This study are particularly interested in examining the dynamics of the advice network ties and the knowledge contribution behavior in the context of virtual financial communities in which people voluntarily participate to exchanges investing-related information. Unlike popular friendship-based online social networks, virtual financial communities in this study enables members to construct their own advice network by adding, maintaining, or terminating advice ties. Changes in network ties are referred to as social selection, while changes in individuals' behavior in response to the current network position are referred to as social influence. Dynamic network modeling is applied to investigate effects of social selection and influence separately and then examine the interplay between social selection and behavioral influence. Examination of such effects both separately and simultaneously requires a longitudinal data that capture dynamic changes in both the advice ties and the behavior under study.
