21. Arithmetic Progressions on Huff Curves
Topic: Math
Published: 7/23/2012
Author: Dustin Moody
Abstract: We look at arithmetic progressions on elliptic curves known as Huff curves. By an arithmetic progression on an elliptic curve, we mean that either the x or y-coordinates of a sequence of rational points on the curve form an arithmetic progression. ...

22. Evolutionary Construction of de Bruijn Sequences
Topic: Math
Published: 7/20/2012
Author: Meltem Sonmez Turan
Abstract: A binary de Bruijn sequence of order n is a cyclic sequence of period 2^n, in which each n-bit pattern appears exactly once. These sequences are commonly used in applications such as stream cipher design, pseudo-random number generation, 3-D pattern ...

23. Combinatorial Testing of ACTS: A Case Study
Topic: Math
Published: 4/21/2012
Authors: Mehra N. Borazjany, Linbin Yu, Yu Lei, Raghu N Kacker, David R Kuhn
Abstract: In this paper we present a case study of applying combinatorial testing to test a combinatorial test generation tool called ACTS. The purpose of this study is two-fold. First, we want to gain experience and insights about how to apply combinatorial t ...

24. Identifying Failure-Inducing Combinations in a Combinatorial Test Set
Topic: Math
Published: 4/17/2012
Author: Raghu N Kacker

25. Adaptive Preimage Resistance Analysis Revisited: Requirements, Subtleties and Implications
Topic: Math
Published: 4/16/2012
Authors: Dong H. Chang, Moti Yung
Abstract: In the last few years, the need to design new cryptographic hash functions has led to the intense study of when desired hash multi-properties are preserved or assured under compositions and domain extensions. In this area, it is important to identify ...

26. Improved Indifferentiability Security Bound for the JH Mode
Topic: Math
Published: 3/22/2012
Authors: Dustin Moody, Souradyuti Paul, Daniel C Smith-Tone
Abstract: The JH hash function is one of the five fi nalists of the ongoing NIST SHA3 hash function competition. Despite several earlier attempts, and years of analysis, the indi fferentiability security bound of the JH mode has so far remained remarkably lo ...

27. Light a Single Candle: Studying Supernovae
Topic: Math
Published: 3/1/2012
Authors: Dianne M O'Leary, Bert W Rust
Abstract: At peak luminosity, Type Ia supernovae can be even brighter than their parent galaxies, and their light curves display a very uniform and regular behavior. This makes them excellent candidates for a role as standard candles in measuring the distance ...

28. TABLE ERRATA for Magnus, Oberhettinger & Soni (1966): Formulas and Theorems for the Special Functions of Mathematical Physics
Topic: Math
Published: 2/16/2012
Author: Howard S Cohl
Abstract: A TABLE ERRATA is submitted concerning a formula in terms of a sum of two Gauss hypergeometric functions for Ferrers function of the second kind. This error occurs on p. 167 of Magnus, Oberhettinger & Soni (1966) Formulas and Theorems for the Special ...

29. Towards a Metric for Communication Network Vulnerability to Attacks: A Game Theoretic Approach
Topic: Math
Published: 2/13/2012
Authors: Assane Gueye, Vladimir V Marbukh
Abstract: In this paper, we propose a quantification of the vulnerability of a communication network when links are subject to failures due to the actions of a strategic adversary. We model the adversarial nature of the problem as a 2-player game between a net ...

30. Social and Physical Aspects of Seismic Risk
Topic: Math
Published: 12/31/2011
Authors: Carmen Diego Gon¿alves, Antonio M Possolo
Abstract: Seismic risk has social and physical aspects: although very different in nature, they are intertwined and share striking similarities. Seismic risk assessment involves models and data, and judgments of the potential impact of earthquakes, which must ...
