An XML framework for concept description is given, based upon the fact that the tree structure of XML implies the logical structure of concepts as defined by attributional calculus. Especially, the attribute-value representation is implementable in the XML framework. Since the attribute-value representation is an important way to represent knowledge in AI,… (More)
The basic properties of RSA cryptosystems and some classical attacks on them are described. Derived from geometric properties of the Euler functions, the Euler function rays, a new ansatz to attack RSA cryptosystems is presented. A resulting, albeit inefficient, algorithm is given. It essentially consists of a loop with starting value determined by the… (More)
Electricity market mechanisms designed to steer sustainable generation of electricity play an important role for the energy transition intended to mitigate climate change. One of the major problems is to complement volatile renewable energy sources by operationally flexible capacity reserves. In this paper a proposal is given to determine prices on… (More)
The problem of matchmaking in electronic social networks is formulated as an optimization problem. In particular, a function measuring the matching degree of elds of interest of a search proole with those of an advertising proole is proposed.
Received A connection between the notion of information and the concept of risk and return in portfolio theory is deduced. This succeeds in two steps: A general moment-return relation for arbitrary assets is derived, thereafter the total expected return is connected to the Kullback-Leibler information. With this result the optimization problem to maximize… (More)
