Affine equivalence and constructions of cryptographically strong Boolean functions
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2013-09)
In this thesis, we study a type of affine equivalence for the monomial rotation-symmetric (MRS) Boolean func-tions and two new construction techniques for cryptographic Boolean functions based on the affine equivalence of ...
Solving multi-variate polynomial equations in a finite field
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2013-06)
Solving large systems of multivariate polynomial equations is an active area of mathematical research, as these polynomials are used in many fields of science. The objective of this research is to advance the development ...
On the quasimonotonicity of a square linear operator with respect to a nonnegative cone
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1998-06)
The question of when a square, linear operator is quasimonotone nondecreasing with respect to a nonnegative cone was posed for the application of vector Lyapunov functions in 1974. Necessary conditions were given in 1980, ...
A multilevel approach to the algebraic image reconstruction problem
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1994-06)
The problem of reconstructing an image from its Radon transform profiles is outlined. This problem has medical, industrial and military applications. Using the computer assisted tomography (CAT) scan as an example, a ...
