  1. 1. Quantum Computational Speedup For The Minesweeper Problem

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Teoretisk fysik; Uppsala universitet/Teoretisk fysik

    Author : Olof Terner; Villhelm Urpi Hedbjörk; [2017]
    Keywords : Minesweeper; quantum computing;

    Abstract : Quantum computing is a young but intriguing field of science. It combines quantum mechanics with information theory and computer science to potentially solve certain formerly computationally expensive tasks more efficiently. Classical computers are based on bits that can take on the value zero or one. READ MORE

  2. 2. Distributed Graph Mining : A study of performance advantages in distributed data mining paradigms when processing graphs using PageRank on a single node cluster

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för datavetenskap och kommunikation (CSC); KTH/Skolan för datavetenskap och kommunikation (CSC)

    Author : Alan Abdlwafa; Henrik Edman; [2015]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Distributed data mining is a relatively new area within computer science that is steadily growing, emerging from the demands of being able to gather and process various distributed data by utilising clusters. This report presents the properties of graph structured data and what paradigms to use for efficiently processing the data type, based on comprehensive theoretical studies applied on practical tests performed on a single node cluster.

  4. 4. R&D Efficiency in China: Can State-owned Firms Compete?

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Ekonomisk-historiska institutionen

    Author : John Boylston; [2013]
    Keywords : China; R D; R D Efficiency; Aerospace; Data Envelopment Analysis; SOE; Business and Economics;

    Abstract : Can state-owned firms’ R&D compete with that of more nimble private and foreign innovator firms? This paper analyzes R&D efficiency in China’s high tech industries (i) theoretically, based on previous studies, and (ii) empirically, through Data Envelopment Analysis under both Constant and Variable Returns to Scale. Though Chinese state-owned firms can theoretically be R&D efficient in industries where the underlying science is well understood, a myriad of factors including persistent soft budget constraints and policy burdens mitigate the potential advantages – bureaucratic pre-screening and access to finance – that characterize state-owned firms.

  5. 5. Digital Tools Supporting Boardgames - Dungeons and Drawings on the Microsoft Surface

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för data- och informationsteknik

    Author : Johan Frölander; Ulf Hartelius; [2011-12-09]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : In this report we present Tisch, a computer-based system with a tangible interface to support tabletop gaming in general and tabletop role-playing games and small-scale wargaming in particular. Based on the ideas of tangible and tabletop interfaces from computer science Tisch was developed to explore how technology can support tabletop gaming activities without becoming a hindrance or removing the players‟ agency over the rules.
