The primary objective of this thesis is to develop a fast and efficient computational framework for the nonlinear inverse problem of identifying a variable coefficient in a system of partial differential equation modelling the response of an incompressible elastic object under some known body...

As the computing industry moved toward faster and more energy-efficient solutions, multicore computers proved to be dependable. Soon after, the Network-on-Chip (NoC) paradigm made headway as an effective method of connecting multiple cores on a single chip. These on-chip networks have been used to relay... READ MORE
We investigate the dynamics of the human multilayer tear film, subject to a reservoir of lipid at the lids. A numerical method is constructed to solve a one-dimensional tear film model, derived using lubrication theory. Three choices for the open eye boundary conditions are explored... READ MORE
As semiconductor technologies continues to scale, more and more cores are being integrated on the same multicore chip. This increase in complexity poses the challenge of efficient data transfer between these cores. Several on-chip network architectures are proposed to improve the design flexibility and... READ MORE
The genus Ctenosaura (spiny-tailed iguanas) represents the most diverse group of iguanas with 18 currently recognized species. Ctenosaura similis has the most widespread ranges of all the Ctenosaura species, and extends from southern Mexico to Panama including many coastal islands. The purpose of this... READ MORE
Passing messages to soldiers on the battle field, conducting online banking, and downloading files on the internet are very different applications that all share one thing in common, concerns over security of the data being processed. Data security depends on the cryptographic systems that... READ MORE
Throughout history, Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) has killed more people than any other infectious agent, while Mycobacterium leprae is an ancient human pathogen that still causes disease today. Each has developed drug resistance, thus the discovery of potential novel antibiotic targets is essential. The diadenosine... READ MORE
