It is widely recognized that security issues will play a crucial role in the majority of future computer and communication systems. Central tools for achieving system security are cryptographic algorithms. This contribution proposes arithmetic architectures which are optimized for modern field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). The proposed architectures(More)
It is widely recognized that security issues will play a crucial role in the majority of future computer and communication systems. Central tools for achieving system security are cryptographic algorithms. For performance as well as for physical security reasons, it is often advantageous to realize cryptographic algorithms in hardware. In order to overcome(More)
We review lattice results related to pion, kaon, Dand B-meson physics with the aim of making them easily accessible to the particle-physics community. More specifically, we report on the determination of the lightquark masses, the form factor f+(0), arising in semileptonic K → π transition at zero momentum transfer, as well as the decay-constant ratio fK /(More)
AIMS Pulmonary vein ablation offers the potential to cure patients with atrial fibrillation. In this study, we investigated the incidence of pulmonary vein stenosis after radiofrequency catheter ablation of refractory atrial fibrillation by systematic long-term follow-up. METHODS AND RESULTS Forty-seven patients with refractory and highly symptomatic(More)
BACKGROUND Pulmonary vein (PV) isolation is a promising new treatment for atrial fibrillation (AF). We hypothesized that isolation of large areas around both ipsilateral PVs with verification of conduction block is more effective than the isolation of each individual PV. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 110 patients, 67 with paroxysmal AF and 43 with(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies have demonstrated a high incidence of atrial tachyarrhythmias (ATs) in patients with Brugada syndrome (BS). The present study aimed to investigate whether various 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) and electrophysiological parameters may help to differentiate subjects with a high probability to develop ATs. METHODS AND RESULTS The(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study aimed to evaluate the diagnostic value of specific ECG markers in the differentiation of common type atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT) and atrioventricular reentrant tachycardia (AVRT) via a concealed accessory pathway. METHODS One hundred and ten ECGs with paroxysmal narrow QRS complex, short RP tachycardia(More)

We present a quenched lattice calculation of the lowest order [O(alpha(2))] hadronic contribution to the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon which arises from the hadronic vacuum polarization. A general method is presented for computing entirely in Euclidean space, obviating the need for the usual dispersive treatment which relies on experimental data for(More)
At stronger gauge-field couplings, the domain wall fermion (DWF) residual mass (mres), a measure of chiral symmetry breaking (χSB), grows rapidly as it is largely due to near zero fermion eigenmodes of log(T ), where T is the 4D transfer matrix along the fifth dimension. The number of these eigenmodes increase rapidly at strong coupling. To suppress such(More)
