Climate change predictions derived from coupled carbon-climate models are highly dependent on assumptions about feedbacks between the biosphere and atmosphere. One critical feedback occurs if C uptake by the biosphere increases in response to the fossil-fuel driven increase in atmospheric [CO(2)] ("CO(2) fertilization"), thereby slowing the rate of increase(More)
We present the design, implementation, and evaluation of the Acoustic Embedded Networked Sensing Box (ENSBox), a platform for prototyping rapid-deployable distributed acoustic sensing systems, particularly distributed source localization. Each ENSBox integrates an ARM processor running Linux and supports key facilities required for source localization: a(More)
— Dual-radio, dual-processor nodes are an emerging class of Wireless Sensor Network devices that provide both low-energy operation as well as substantially increased computational performance and communication bandwidth for applications. In such systems, the secondary radio and processor operates with sufficiently low power that it may remain always(More)
Forest trees directly contribute to carbon cycling in forest soils through the turnover of their fine roots. In this study we aimed to calculate root turnover rates of common European forest tree species and to compare them with most frequently published values. We compiled available European data and applied various turnover rate calculation methods to the(More)

The response of soil respiration (SR) to elevated CO2 is driven by a number of processes and feedbacks. This work aims to i) detect the effect of elevated CO2 on soil respiration during the second rotation of a short rotation forest, at two levels of N availability; and ii) identify the main drivers behind any changes in soil respiration. A poplar(More)
In this paper we focus on a general approach of using genetic algorithm (GA) to evolve Quantum circuits (QC). We propose a generic GA to evolve arbitrary quantum circuit specified by a (target) unitary matrix as well as a specific encoding that reduces the time of calculating the resultant unitary matrices of chromosomes. We demonstrate that, in contrast to(More)
Recent work in wireless embedded networked systems has followed <i>heterogeneous</i> designs, incorporating a mixture of elements from extremely constrained 8- or 16-bit &#8220;Motes&#8221; to less resource-constrained 32-bit embedded &#8220;Microservers.&#8221; Emstar is a software environment for developing and deploying complex applications on such(More)
The paper discusses the evolutionary computation approach to the problem of optimal synthesis of Quantum and Reversible Logic circuits. Our approach uses standard Genetic Algorithm (GA) and its relative power as compared to previous approaches comes from the encoding and the formulation of the cost and fitness functions for quantum circuits synthesis. We(More)
It is believed that quantum computing will begin to have a practical impact in industry around year 2010. We propose an approach to test generation and fault localization for a wide category of fault models. While in general we follow the methods used in test of standard circuits, there are two significant differences: (2) we use both deterministic and(More)
