Multi-Dimensional Spatially-Coupled Code Design Through Informed Relocation of Circulants

A circulant-based spatially-coupled (SC) code is constructed by partitioning the circulants of an underlying block code into a number of components, and then coupling copies of these components together. By connecting (coupling) several SC codes, multi-dimensional SC (MD-SC) codes are constructed. In this paper, we present a systematic framework for constructing MD-SC codes with notably better cycle properties than their 1D-SC counterparts. In our framework, informed multi-dimensional coupling is performed via an optimal relocation and an (optional) power adjustment of problematic circulants in the constituent SC codes. Compared to the 1D-SC codes, our MD-SC codes are demonstrated to have up to 85% reduction in the population of the smallest cycle, and up to 3.8 orders of magnitude BER improvement in the early error floor region. The results of this work can be particularly beneficial in data storage systems, e.g., 2D magnetic recording and 3D Flash systems, as high-performance MD-SC codes are robust against various channel impairments and non-uniformity.

Fuzzy Hybrid Systems modeling with application in decision making and control
Boutalis, Yiannis; Moor, Thomas; Schmidt, Klaus Verner (2012-11-28)
Hybrid Systems are systems containing both discrete event and continuous variable components. Many recent contributions address crisp situations, where ambiguity or subjectivity in the measured data is absent. In this paper, we propose Fuzzy Hybrid Systems to account for inaccurate measurements and uncertain dynamics. We present a strategy to determine the most appropriate control actions in a sampled data setting. The proposed approach is based on three basic steps that are performed in each sampling perio...
Parallel Scalable PDE Constrained Optimization Antenna Identification in Hyperthermia Cancer Treatment Planning
SCHENK, Olaf; Manguoğlu, Murat; CHRİSTEN, Matthias; SATHE, Madan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2009-01-01)
We present a PDE-constrained optimization algorithm which is designed for parallel scalability on distributed-memory architectures with thousands of cores. The method is based on a line-search interior-point algorithm for large-scale continuous optimization, it is matrix-free in that it does not require the factorization of derivative matrices. Instead, it uses a new parallel and robust iterative linear solver on distributed-memory architectures. We will show almost linear parallel scalability results for t...
Numerical calculation of backfilling of scour holes
Sumer, B Mutlu; Baykal, Cüneyt; Fuhrman, David R; Jacobsen, Niels G; Fredsoe, Jorgen (2014-12-04)
A fully-coupled hydrodynamic and morphologic CFD model is presented for simulating backfilling processes around structures. The hydrodynamic model is based on Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations, coupled with two-equation k-ω turbulence closure. The sediment transport model consists of separate bed and suspended load descriptions, the latter based on a turbulent diffusion equation coupled with a reference concentration function near the sea bed boundary. Bed morphology is based on the sediment continu...
CBFEM-MPI: A Parallelized Version of Characteristic Basis Finite Element Method for Extraction of 3-D Interconnect Capacitances
Ozgun, Ozlem; Mittra, Raj; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2009-02-01)
In this paper, we present a novel, non-iterative domain decomposition method, which has been parallelized by using the message passing interface (MPI) library, and used to efficiently extract the capacitance matrixes of 3-D interconnect structures, by employing characteristic basis functions (CBFs) in the context of the finite element method (FEM). In this method, which is Failed CBFEM-MPI, the computational domain is partitioned into a number of nonoverlapping subdomains in which the CBFs are constructed b...
Scalable computational steering system for vizualization of large scale CFD simulations
Tonkal, Ozan Çağrı; Pehlivan, Sercan; Sezer Uzol, Nilay; İşler, Veysi (2002-06-27)
A general-purpose computational steering system (POSSE) which can be coupled to any C/C++ simulation code, has been developed and tested with a 3-D Navier-Stokes flow solver (PUMA2). This paper illustrates how to use “computational steering” with PUMA2 to visualize CFD solutions while they are being computed, and even change the input data while it is running. In addition, the visualizations can be displayed using virtual reality facilities (such as CAVEs and RAVEs) to better understand the 3-D nature of th...
