Algorithms for searching for normal and near- Yang sequences

  title={Algorithms for searching for normal and near- Yang sequences},
  author={Marc Gysin},
This thesis is about normal and near-Yang sequences. An original definition of near-Yang sequences is included. After a short overview of the mathematical background of normal and near-Yang sequences, different algorithms for searching for these sequences are described. These algorithms can be divided in two groups: exhaustive search algorithms and heuristic search algorithms. One of the most important heuristic search algorithms is the simulated annealing algorithm. The following new results… Expand
