  1. We propose an over-the-air learning framework for collaborative decision making in wireless sensor networks. The low complexity framework leverages low-latency sensor transmission for a decision server to coordinate measurement sensors for hypothesis testing through over-the-air aggregation of sensor data over a multiple-access channel. We formulate several collaborative over-the-air hypothesis testing problems under different practical protocols for collaborative learning and decision making. We develop hypothesis tests for these network protocols and deployment scenarios including channel fading. We provide performance benchmark for both basic likelihood ratio test and generalized likelihood ratio test under different deployment conditions. Our results clearly demonstrate gain provided by increasing number of collaborative sensors.

  2. Deformable beamsplitters have been shown as a means of creating a wide field of view, varifocal, optical see- through, augmented reality display. Current systems suffer from degraded optical quality at far focus and are tethered to large air compressors or pneumatic devices which prevent small, self-contained systems. We present an analysis on the shape of the curved beamsplitter as it deforms to different focal depths. Our design also demonstrates a step forward in reducing the form factor of the overall system.
  3. We describe a recent lattice-QCD calculation of the leptonic decay con- stants of heavy-light pseudoscalar mesons containing charm and bottom quarks and of the masses of the up, down, strange, charm, and bottom quarks. Results for these quantities are of the highest precision to date. Calculations use 24 isospin-symmetric ensembles of gauge-field configura- tions with six different lattice spacings as small as approximately 0.03 fm and several values of the light quark masses down to physical values of the average up- and down-sea-quark masses. We use the highly-improved staggered quark (HISQ) formulation for valence and sea quarks, includ- ing the bottom quark. The analysis employs heavy-quark effective theory (HQET). A novel HQET method is used in the determination of the quark masses.
