Collisions at high-energy particle colliders are a traditionally fruitful source of exotic particle discoveries. Finding these rare particles requires solving difficult signal-versus-background classification problems, hence machine-learning approaches are often used. Standard approaches have relied on 'shallow' machine-learning models that have a limited(More)
The Higgs boson is thought to provide the interaction that imparts mass to the fundamental fermions, but while measurements at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) are consistent with this hypothesis, current analysis techniques lack the statistical power to cross the traditional 5σ significance barrier without more data. Deep learning techniques have the(More)
We introduce the model of generalized open quantum walks on networks using the Transition Operation Matrices formalism. We focus our analysis on the mean first passage time and the average return time in Apollonian networks. These results differ significantly from a classical walk on these networks. We show a comparison of the classical and quantum(More)
GUNDUZ, AYSEGUL. Compression and Transmission of Facial Images Over Very Narrowband Wireless Channels. (Under the direction of Dr. Hamid Krim.) Law enforcement officers on mobile duty are often confronted with ID authentication of subjects, requiring the transmission of a driver’s license picture over wireless channels with very narrow bandwidths. To access(More)
The high resolution Fly’s Eye (HiRes) detector in Dugway, Utah, is an air fluorescence detector designed for the measurement of the energy and arrival direction of cosmic ray particles with energy E > 10 eV. HiRes monitors the night sky for fluorescence light from air shower cascades induced by cosmic ray primaries. The light is collected by mirrors and(More)
