Research Publications

Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Professor Xiaoyi Lu and co-authors Professor Dhabaleswar K. Panda from the Ohio State University and Dipti Shankar, a former UC Merced Ph.D. student working at SAP in Germany, have published a book titled "High-Performance Big Data Computing.” The book, published by MIT Press, offers an in-depth overview of high-performance big data computing and the associated technical issues, approaches and solutions.

The atmosphere across much of the U.S. is demanding a greater share of water than it used to, according to a new study by a team including Professor John Abatzoglou from UC Merced, the Desert Research Institute and Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego. The study, published in the Journal of Hydrometeorology, looked at data from the past 40 years related to evaporative demand, a measure of the potential loss of water from the Earth’s surface to the atmosphere.

Cognitive and Information Sciences Professor Paul SmaldinoMuch of online conversation today consists of signaling one’s political identity. When communicating in mixed groups, do people use "covert" signals that are recognizable by their own political in-group but easy for outsiders to miss?

Cognitive and Information Sciences Professor Paul Smaldino answered this question in a paper published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Smaldino developed a mathematical theory of covert signaling and, working with a team of collaborators, confirmed the model's predictions using a large sample of tweets. Read more
