131. Indifferentiability Security of the Fast Widepipe Hash: Breaking the Birthday Barrier
Topic: Math
Published: 12/2/2012
Authors: Dustin Moody, Daniel C Smith-Tone, Souradyuti Paul
Abstract: A hash function secure in the indi fferentiability framework is able to resist all generic attacks. Such hash functions also play a crucial role in the security of the protocols that use hash functions as random functions. The rate of a hash mode is ...

132. Integral Operators and Delay Differential Equations
Topic: Math
Published: 10/1/2006
Authors: David E. Gilsinn, Florian A Potra
Abstract: We begin this expository essay by reviewing with examples what a typical engineer already knows about statistics. We then consider a central question in engineering decision making, i.e., given a computer simulation of high-consequence systems, how ...

133. Introducing Combinatorial Testing in a Large Organization: Pilot Project Experience Report
Topic: Math
Published: 4/1/2014
Authors: Jon Hagar, David R Kuhn, Raghu N Kacker, Thomas Wissink
Abstract: This poster gives an overview of the experience of eight pilot projects, over two years, applying combinatorial testing in a large aerospace organization. While results varied across the different pilot projects, overall it was estimated that CT wou ...

134. Isolating Failure-Inducing Combinations in Combinatorial Testing using Test Augmentation and Classification
Topic: Math
Published: 4/21/2012
Authors: Kiran Shakya, Tao Xie, Nuo Li, Yu Lei, Raghu N Kacker, David R Kuhn
Abstract: Combinatorial Testing (CT) is a systematic way of sampling input parameters of the software under test (SUT). A t-way combinatorial test set can exercise all behaviors of the SUT caused by interactions between t input parameters or less. Although com ...

135. Isomorphism Classes of Edwards Curves over Finite Fields
Topic: Math
Published: 5/18/2012
Authors: Reza Farashahi, Dustin Moody, Hongfeng Wu
Abstract: Edwards curves are a new model for elliptic curves, which have attracted notice in cryptography. We give exact formulas for the number of F_q-isomorphism classes of Edwards curves and twisted Edwards curves. This answers a question recently asked ...

136. Lattice Matching (LM)-Prevention of Inadvertent Duplicate Publications of Crystal Structures
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Topic: Math
Published: 10/1/2002
Author: Alan D. Mighell
Abstract: Lattice-matching techniques have proved to be an extremely effective for the identification of unknown crystalline materials. A commonly employed lattice-matching strategy is based on matching the reduced cell of an unknown against a database of know ...

137. Lattice Sums and the Two-dimensional, Periodic Green s Function for the Helmholtz Equation
Topic: Math
Published: 1/16/2001
Authors: Andrew M Dienstfrey, Fengbo Hang, Jingfang Huang
Abstract: Many algorithms that are currently used for the solution of the Helmholtz equation in periodic domains require the evaluation of the Green s function, G(x, x0). The fact that the natural representation of G via the method of images gives rise to a co ...

138. Lattice Symmetry and Identification--The Fundamental Role of Reduced Cells in Materials Characterization
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Topic: Math
Published: 2/1/2002
Author: Alan D. Mighell
Abstract: In theory, physical crystals can be represented by idealized mathematical lattices. Under appropriate conditions, these representations can be used for a variety of purposes such as identifying, classifying, and understanding the physical properties ...

139. Light a Single Candle: Studying Supernovae
Topic: Math
Published: 3/1/2012
Authors: Dianne M O'Leary, Bert W Rust
Abstract: At peak luminosity, Type Ia supernovae can be even brighter than their parent galaxies, and their light curves display a very uniform and regular behavior. This makes them excellent candidates for a role as standard candles in measuring the distance ...

140. Linear Algebra and Sequential Importance Ssampling for Network Reliability
Topic: Math
Published: 12/11/2011
Authors: David G. Harris, Francis Sullivan, Isabel M Beichl
Abstract: The reliability polynomial of a graph gives the probability that a graph is connected as a function of the probability that each edge is connected. The coefficients of the reliability polynomial count the number of connected subgraphs of various size ...
