In this paper we first recapitulate some basic notions of brittle and cohesive fracture models, as well as the phase-field approximation to fracture. Next, a critical assessment is made of theâ€¦ (More)

We present a proposed standard for signcryption (a joint signature and encryption primitive) using the Probabilistic Signature and Encryption Padding (PSEP) scheme. The standard supports signcryptingâ€¦ (More)

We consider the Galerkin finite element approximation of an elliptic Dirichlet boundary control model problem governed by the Laplacian operator. The analytical setting of this problem uses L2â€¦ (More)

As scanning technologies improve new approaches to digitizing cultural heritage artefacts emerge. The use of micro--computed tomography (micro-CT) presents an interesting approach as it is capable ofâ€¦ (More)

In this note we construct measures of maximal entropy for a certain class of maps with critical points. The main application of our result is the existence of measures of maximal entropy for theâ€¦ (More)

This paper describes a data fusion approach for 3D sensors exploiting assets of the signed distance function. The objectoriented model is described as well as the algorithm design. We developed aâ€¦ (More)

In this thesis, we study stability of inviscid fluids in the Lagrangian sense. That is, we look at how paths of particles diverge from each other under a small perturbation of the initial velocityâ€¦ (More)
