Conceptualizing Knowledge Friction
Dr. Paul Shigley, NIWC-PACThis dissertation explores knowledge friction. The concept knowledge flow is defined by many researchers as the transfer of actionable information between individuals, groups and organizations. Knowledge Flow Theory (KFT) frames and offers tools for conceptualizing, analyzing, visualizing, and measuring knowledge flows. Recently, Nissen conceptualized explicitness-based resistance to knowledge transfer; he referred to it as knowledge friction. Read more.
Temporal Connectivity as a Measure of Robustness in NOMA Wireless Networks
Dr. Maj Benjamin PimentelThe purpose of this research is to contribute to the
theoretical understanding of nonorthogonal multiple access
(NOMA) wireless networks and provide a model that informs
their practical design. This research is guided by the central question:
How does variable overloading affect robustness in
NOMA wireless networks?
A MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN, DR. ALEX BORDETSKY
Welcome to the Information Sciences Department at Naval Postgraduate School. We provide graduate education and research in information sciences, systems, and operations. We focus on the DoD information environment: Operational employment and exploitation of cyberspace in the context of Integrated Fires, IO/EW planning and execution in IF, Command and Control of IF, Enterprise Architecture, Network Management, Cloud Computing and Big Data Analysis.
"NPS has been invaluable...One of the things that everyone says, but you do not really appreciate until you go through the process, is that NPS helps you to develop a problem-solving thought process,” stressed Hermsdorfer. “By conducting my research and working my experiments, I have been able to develop a set of problem-solving skills that I will rely upon in the future."
