Michigan State University is a public research university located in East Lansing, Michigan, United States and is the first land-grant institution that was created to serve as a model for future land-grant colleges in the country under the 1862 Morrill Act.MSU pioneered the studies of packaging, hospitality business, supply chain management, and telecommunication. It is considered to be one of America's Public Ivy universities, which recognizes top public universities in the United States.Following the introduction of the Morrill Act, the college became coeducational and expanded its curriculum beyond agriculture. Today, MSU is the seventh-largest university in the United States , with 49,300 students and 2,954 faculty members.MSU's Division I sports teams are called the Spartans. They compete in the Big Ten Conference in all sports. MSU's football team won the Rose Bowl in 1954, 1956, 1988 and 2014 and boasts six national championships. Its men's basketball team won the NCAA National Championship in 1979 and 2000 and is currently enjoying a streak of six Final Four appearances over the last 13 seasons. MSU men's ice hockey won national titles in 1966, 1986 and 2007. Cross country has historically been Michigan State's most successful sport, especially during a four-decade period spanning roughly 1930–1970 during which the Spartans won eight NCAA championships and numerous other conference and national titles.

A computer-implemented method is provided for compressing a collection of images. The method includes: receiving image data for an image ensemble composed of a plurality of images; dividing the image data into a plurality of data blocks; decomposing each data block from the plurality of data blocks into a set of rank-one tensors by estimating each rank-one tensor individually, where each rank-one tensor is represented by three one-dimensional vectors; arranging the rank-one tensors for each of the plurality of data blocks into a two-dimensional matrix, where the decomposer is implemented by computer processor; compressing the two-dimensional matrix using a compression operation; and storing the compressed two-dimensional matrix in a non-transitory data store.

Embodiments are described for automata models for use in deep packet inspection. Various embodiments are described for a new automata model, Overlay DFA (ODFA), which captures state replication in DFAs. Additional embodiments include combining the ODFA model with a D2FA model to provide an Overlay Delayed Input DFA (OD2FA). As the DFA model captures transition sharing, the OD2FA model captures both state replication and transition sharing. Algorithms are disclosed for efficiently constructing the OD2FA model and for implementing the OD2FA model in Ternary Content Addressable Memory (TCAM).

The analysis tool employs a computer-implemented algorithm that uses homotopy-based approaches to map the solution from the exit point to the controlling unstable equilibrium point (UEP). The computational time is reduced significantly by using an approximate exit point rather than computing an accurate exit point as it is required in finding the controlling UEPs using traditional transient stability direct methods. In addition, this method eliminates the necessity of computing the minimum gradient point (MGP) which is a key element in using Newton methods. These properties provide an advantage to homotopy-based approaches over traditional iterative methods in terms of both speed of computation and reliability of finding solutions.

The disclosure is directed to diboron compounds, related methods of making, and related intermediate boron and diboron compounds used to make the same. The diboron compounds can be used as reagents to prepare chemical intermediates that are used in pharmaceutical, agrochemical, and specialty electronics industries. The disclosed processes and compounds provide simplified synthetic paths that significantly reduce steps, improve scalability, and minimize costs for producing the diboron reagents.
