Algorithmic and Combinatorial Questions on Some Geometric Problems on Graphs
(20180508)This thesis mainly focuses on algorithmic and combinatorial questions related to some geometric problems on graphs. In the last part of this thesis, a graph coloring problem is also discussed. Boxicity and Cubicity: These ... 
Algorithms for Product Pricing and Energy Allocation in Energy Harvesting Sensor Networks
(20180509)In this thesis, we consider stochastic systems which arise in diﬀerent realworld application contexts. The ﬁrst problem we consider is based on product adoption and pricing. A monopolist selling a product has to appropriately ... 
Architecture and Design of Wide Band Spectrum Sensing Receiver for Cognitive Radio Systems
(20180103)To explore spectral opportunities in wideband regime for cognitive radio we need a wideband spectrum sensing receiver. Current wideband receiver architectures need wideband analog to digital converter (ADC) to sample ... 
BallastFree VariableSpeed Generation for Standalone and GridConnected MicroHydel Power Plants
(20171212)Concerns about climate change brought about by the increasing usage of fossil fuels has made it imperative to develop sustainable energy usage based on renewable sources. Microhydel plants are an important source of ... 
Bayes Optimal Feature Selection for Supervised Learning
(20180218)The problem of feature selection is critical in several areas of machine learning and data analysis such as, for example, cancer classification using gene expression data, text categorization, etc. In this work, we consider ... 
Belief Propagation and Algorithms for MeanField Combinatorial Optimisations
(20171115)We study combinatorial optimization problems on graphs in the meanfield model, which assigns independent and identically distributed random weights to the edges of the graph. Specifically, we focus on two generalizations ... 
Characterization of the Voice Source by the DCT for Speaker Information
(20171210)Extracting speakerspecific information from speech is of great interest to both researchers and developers alike, since speaker recognition technology finds application in a wide range of areas, primary among them being ... 
Compact Modeling of Short Channel Common Double Gate MOSFET Adapted to GateOxide Thickness Asymmetry
(20180508)Compact Models are the physically based accurate mathematical description of the circuit elements, which are computationally eﬃcient enough to be incorporated in circuit simulators so that the outcome becomes useful for ... 
Computational Models of Perceptual Space : From Simple Features to Complex Shapes
(20180215)Dissimilarity plays a very important role in object recognition. But, finding perceptual dissimilarity between objects is nontrivial as it is not equivalent to the pixel dissimilarity between the objects (For example, two ... 
Content Distribution in Social Groups
(20180129)We study Social Groups consisting of selfinterested interconnected nodes looking for common content. We can observe Social Groups in various sociotechnological networks, such as Cellular Network assisted DevicetoDevice ... 
Cooperative Communication and QoS in Infrastructure WLANs
