ASU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This collection includes most of the ASU Theses and Dissertations from 2011 to present. ASU Theses and Dissertations are available in downloadable PDF format; however, a small percentage of items are under embargo. Information about the dissertations/theses includes degree information, committee members, an abstract, supporting data or media.

In addition to the electronic theses found in the ASU Digital Repository, ASU Theses and Dissertations can be found in the ASU Library Catalog.

Dissertations and Theses granted by Arizona State University are archived and made available through a joint effort of the ASU Graduate College and the ASU Libraries.

Network-on-Chip (NoC) architectures have emerged as the solution to the on-chip communication challenges of multi-core embedded processor architectures. Design space exploration and performance evaluation of a NoC design requires fast simulation infrastructure. Simulation of register transfer level model of NoC is too slow for any meaningful design space exploration. One of the solutions to reduce the speed of simulation is to increase the level of abstraction. SystemC TLM2.0 provides the capability to model hardware design at higher levels of abstraction with trade-off of simulation speed and accuracy. In this thesis, SystemC TLM2.0 models of NoC routers are developed at three …

A community in a social network can be viewed as a structure formed by individuals who share similar interests. Not all communities are explicit; some may be hidden in a large network. Therefore, discovering these hidden communities becomes an interesting problem. Researchers from a number of fields have developed algorithms to tackle this problem. Besides the common feature above, communities within a social network have two unique characteristics: communities are mostly small and overlapping. Unfortunately, many traditional algorithms have difficulty recognizing these small communities (often called the resolution limit problem) as well as overlapping communities. In this work, two enhanced …

The power and communication networks are highly interdependent and form a part of the critical infrastructure of a country. Similarly, dependencies exist within the networks itself. Owing to cascading failures, interdependent and intradependent networks are extremely susceptible to widespread vulnerabilities. In recent times the research community has shown significant interest in modeling to capture these dependencies. However, many of them are simplistic in nature which limits their applicability to real world systems. This dissertation presents a Boolean logic based model termed as Implicative Interdependency Model (IIM) to capture the complex dependencies and cascading failures resulting from an initial failure of …

Internet and social media devices created a new public space for debate on political and social topics (Papacharissi 2002; Himelboim 2010). Hotly debated issues span all spheres of human activity; from liberal vs. conservative politics, to radical vs. counter-radical religious debate, to climate change debate in scientific community, to globalization debate in economics, and to nuclear disarmament debate in security. Many prominent ’camps’ have emerged within Internet debate rhetoric and practice (Dahlberg, n.d.). In this research I utilized feature extraction and model fitting techniques to process the rhetoric found in the web sites of 23 Indonesian Islamic religious organizations, later …
