Users of modern data-processing services such as tax preparation or genomic screening are forced to trust them with data that the users wish to keep secret. Ryoan protects secret data while it is processed by services that the data owner does not trust. Accomplishing this goal in a distributed setting is difficult because the user has no control over the(More)
With the rapid growth rate of newly sequenced genomes, species tree inference from multiple genes has become a basic bioinformatics task in comparative and evolutionary biology. However, accurate species tree estimation is difficult in the presence of gene tree discordance, which is often due to incomplete lineage sorting (ILS), modelled by the(More)
Modern mobile apps communicate and exchange data with other apps almost as much as they communicate and exchange data with the operating system. Many popular apps now occupy essential places in the app "ecosystem" and provide other apps with services, such as storage, that have traditionally been the responsibility of the OS. For example, an app may rely on(More)
Combining the strengths of coefficient alpha and maximized reliability coefficients , this paper introduces an estimator based on a maximization method that utilizes a covariance matrix to obtain a subset of split-half reliabilities. The mean of the vector of split-half reliabilities can then be used to estimate reliability. Only the maximum of this vector(More)
