The relation between the Walsh-Hadamard transform and the autocorrelation function of Boolean functions is used to study propagation characteristics of these functions. The Strict Avalanche Criterion and the Perfect Nonlinearity Criterion are generalized in a Propagation Criterion of degree k. New properties and constructions for Boolean bent functions are(More)
HTTP-based delivery for Video on Demand (VoD) has been gaining popularity within recent years. Progressive Download over HTTP, typically used in VoD, takes advantage of the widely deployed network caches to relieve video servers from sending the same content to a high number of users in the same access network. However, due to a sharp increase in the(More)
HTTP Adaptive Streaming (HAS) is quickly becoming the dominant type of video streaming in Over-The-Top multimedia services. HAS content is temporally segmented and each segment is offered in different video qualities to the client. It enables a video client to dynamically adapt the consumed video quality to match with the capabilities of the network and/or(More)

HTTP-based video streaming has been gaining popularity within the recent years. There are multiple benefits of relying on HTTP/TCP connections, such as the usage of the widely deployed network caches to relieve video servers from sending the same content to a high number of users and the avoidance of traversal issues with firewalls and NATs typical for(More)
HTTP Adaptive Streaming (HAS) is becoming the de-facto standard for adaptive streaming solutions. In HAS, video content is split into segments and encoded into multiple qualities, such that the quality of a video can be dynamically adapted during the HTTP download process. This has given rise to intelligent video players that strive to maximize Quality of(More)
Predicting the life cycle and the short-term popularity of a Web object is important for network architecture optimization. In this paper, we attempt to predict the popularity of a Web object given its historical access records using a novel neural network technique, reservoir computing (RC). The traces of popular videos at YouTube for five continuous(More)
Over the past decades, the importance of multimedia services such as video streaming has increased considerably. HTTP Adaptive Streaming (HAS) is becoming the de-facto standard for adaptive video streaming services. In HAS, a video is split into multiple segments and encoded at multiple quality levels. State-of-the-art HAS clients employ deterministic(More)
