A Mathematical Analysis of Computational Complexity

- \section{Introduction}\label{INTR:sec} In this paper we propose and solve polynomially in time and space a problem that consists on deciding whether, given an array called {\em card} of $\mathbf{n}$ columns and $\mathbf{m}$ lines and whose entries, denoted $ij$, $2\leq i\leq\mathbf{n}$ and $2\leq j\leq\mathbf{m}$, contain a finite set of disjunction of two literals (chosen among a finite set of atoms), then all possible combinations, $\mathbf{n}^{\mathbf{m}}$, of conjunctions over unsatisfiable or no....   [tags: theiretical, computation]

Human Alienation and Computational Ecopoetics

- ... Poetic expression is way of stepping outside the frame of the technological, of reawakening the momentary wonder of unconcealment. The creative nature of poetic act has the ability to be affected by absent things as if they were present and to affect thoughts and feelings that arise. (Wordsworth and Coleridge 1798) Wordsworth suggests that poetry is “spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings,” but also “emotion recollected in tranquillity” leading to the creation of a new emotion in the mind....   [tags: sustainable behavior, natural phenomena]

The Between Computational Power And Human Cognition

- The age of computing technology has grown exponentially since the creation of the Third Reich’s Telex Messaging system in 1933 to the release of Apple’s first Personal Computer Lisa in 1983, but the age long controversial question that has perplexed the human race over the last 80 years is “Can computers actually think?” The difference between computational power and human cognition are both fields away from each other, but as the turn of the decade comes to a close most of us humans ponder the question of if human understanding can be incorporated into the programming of Artificial Intelligence to create consciousness....   [tags: Artificial intelligence, Computer]

Computational Thinking Is A Way Of Solving Problems

- Computational thinking is a way of solving problems. Computational thinking is a fundamental part of the way people think and understand the world. Everyone uses computational thinking every day e.g. when you wake up you think of going to the bathroom or to the kitchen. Computational thinking is used to help solve problems, before any problem can be resolved you need to understand it first. Once the problem is understood we develop ways of solving it. There are four corner stones of computational thinking, one is decomposition, two is pattern recognition, three is pattern generalisation & abstraction and fourth is algorithms....   [tags: Problem solving, Computer, Computer programming]

Computational Hardware: Random Access Memory

- Random access memory is an essential resource required by the computational hardware. As the processor speed has attained GHz clock frequency, memory throughput can be a bottleneck to achieve high performance. DRAM can deliver a reasonable solution for such data storage. Typical computational system consists of multiple hardware modules that perform different operations on the data. These modules attempt to access the data concurrently. This leads to a requisite for a memory controller that arbitrates amid requests queried by different modules and exploits maximum throughput....   [tags: storage, controllers, compiler]

What is disputed is whether computationalism is explanatorily bankrupt. For Turing, all computers are digital computers and something becomes a (digital) computer just in case its 'behavior' is interpreted as implementing, executing, or satisfying some (mathematical) function 'f'. As 'computer' names a nonnatural kind, almost everyone agrees that a computational interpretation of this sort is necessary for something to be a computer....   [tags: Computers Computational Systems Papers]

Developments in the Study of Cryptography

- ... As one can imagine, such a cipher was easy to break just from analyzing the ciphertext, and thus more complicated ciphers involving mathematical theory were created. However as the advancement of cryptography continued, so did its contrary field of cryptanalysis, the interpretation of protocols. This arrived at the discovery of frequency analysis; the process in which the repetition of certain characters in a language is greater than those of other characters. Thus the frequency of certain meaningless characters in a ciphertext would be higher than those of other ones....   [tags: communication, cipher, computers]

The Extended Mind Hypothesis

- ... However, the argument goes beyond this as ‘we cannot simply point to the skin/skull boundary as justification.’ (Clark and Chalmers 1998). I shall start by highlighting the fallacy in Clark and Chalmers’ argument, as it is simple and clear. The authors assume that the external objects being coupled with the human mind automatically means that the object becomes part of it. While I may concede that humans and the respective tools used constitute a cognitive system, ‘it does not follow from the fact that one has an “X system” that every component of the system does X’ (Aizawa and Adams 2010) and hence, external objects do not automatically become “the cognitive mind” once they are part of...   [tags: active externalism]

Survey of Security Challenges in Grid Environment

- Abstract. Use of grid systems has increased tremendously since their inception in 90’s. With grids, users execute the jobs without knowing which resources will be used to run their jobs. An important aspect of grids is VO (Virtual Organization). VO is a group of individuals, pursuing a common goal but under different administrative domains. Grids share large computational and storage resource that are geographically distributed among a large number of users. This very nature of grids, introduces quite a few security challenges....   [tags: Information Technology ]

Analysis Of ' How Do We Ask The Turtle On Trace Out A Circle?

- Statement of Purpose “How do we ask the turtle to trace out a circle. Remember it only knows how to walk in straight lines and turn around.” Moving around the Logo turtle with his tail as his pen in sixth grade was my first exposure to computer science. I was immediately fascinated by the idea of approximating a smooth circle with a regular polygon of, say, 360 sides. Staring at the “circle” on screen, I could not quite digest the fact that it was something produced in a fundamentally different way compared to the one I could draw with a pair of compasses, though neither of which was ever close to being the perfect, mathematical circle that probably does not exist in the physical world....   [tags: Logic, Reasoning, Computer, Algorithm]

Ghost-Free High Dynamic Range Imaging Using Histogram Separation and Edge Preserving Denoising

- In this paper, we introduce a ghost free High Dynamic Range imaging algorithm for obtaining ghost-free high dynamic range (HDR) images. The existing multiple image fusion based HDR method work only on condition that there is no camera and object movement when acquiring multiple, differently exposed LDR images. To overcome such an unrealistic condition, the proposed algorithm make three LDR images from a single input image. For this purpose a histogram separation method is proposed in the algorithm for generating three LDR images by stretching each separated histogram....   [tags: HDR, artifact, digital imaging]

Bayesian analysis for a class of beta mixe models

- The beta mixed effects model parameters can be estimated from the Bayesian approach. Bayesian inference on beta mixed models is not straightforward because the posterior distribution is not analytically available. Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) technique is the standard approach to fit these models \citep{zuniga:2013}. In practice, this approach comes with a wide range of problems in terms of convergence and computational time.

Understanding the Hydrogenation of Graphene

- Since its discovery in 2004 [1], Graphene has attracted a great deal of attention due to its remarkable structural and electronic properties[2]. However, one of its main drawbacks is the lack of a gap in its electronic structure, which can limit its electronic applications. My advisor, Jorge Sofo theorized graphane in 2007[3], which is essentially a 2D hydrocarbon with one hydrogen atom attached to each carbon within the graphene lattice. This opens an insulating gap within the electronic structure, and graphane’s creation was shown to be energetically favorable....   [tags: Research Analysis]
