Generating treelike graphs
(The University of Bergen, 20081118)Implementation of an algorithm that interactively generates kgraphs, a superclass of kbranches. 
A geometrybased generic predictor for catalytic and allosteric sites
(Oxford University Press, 2011)An important aspect of understanding protein allostery, and of artificial effector design, is the characterization and prediction of substrate and effectorbinding sites. To find binding sites in allosteric enzymes, many ... 
Grein. A New NonLinear Cryptoprimitive
(The University of Bergen, 20131210)In this thesis, we will study a new stream cipher, Grein, and a new cryptoprimitive used in this cipher. The second chapter gives a brief introduction to cryptography in general. The third chapter looks at stream ciphers ... 
Guaranteeing Resource Bounds for Component Software
(Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 20050615)Component software is software that has been assembled from various pieces of standardized, reusable computer programs, socalled components. Executing component software creates instances of these components. For several ... 
Hash functions in Cryptography
(The University of Bergen, 2008)This thesis is concerned with giving both an overview of the application of hash functions in cryptography and a presentation of today's standard cryptographic hash functions. Cryptographic hash functions are a valuable ... 
Hashfunksjoner for bruk i Digitale Signaturer
(The University of Bergen, 1995) 
A Hierarchical Splitting Scheme to Reveal Insight into Highly SelfOccluded Integral Surfaces
(Václav Skala  UNION Agency, 2012)In flow visualization, integral surfaces are of particular interest for their ability to describe trajectories of massless particles. In areas of swirling motion, integral surfaces can become very complex and difficult ... 
Highlights from the Eighth International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) Student Council Symposium 2012
(BioMed Central, 20121214)Abstract The report summarizes the scientific content of the annual symposium organized by the Student Council of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) held in conjunction ... 
How to cope with incorrect HTML
(The University of Bergen, 2001) 
Hybrid visibility compositing and masking for illustrative rendering
(Elsevier, 201008)In this paper, we introduce a novel framework for the compositing of interactively rendered 3D layers tailored to the needs of scientific illustration. Currently, traditional scientific illustrations are produced in a ... 
Identifying elemental genomic track types and representing them uniformly
(BioMed Central, 20111230)Background: With the recent advances and availability of various highthroughput sequencing technologies, data on many molecular aspects, such as gene regulation, chromatin dynamics, and the threedimensional organization ... 
Illustrative Flow Visualization: State of the Art, Trends and Challenges
(The Eurographics Association, 2012)Flow visualization is a well established branch of scientific visualization and it currently represents an invaluable resource to many fields, like automotive design, meteorology and medical imaging. Thanks to the ... 
An implementation of a Feedback Vertex Set algorithm.
(The University of Bergen, 20130603)An implementation, improvements to implementation and empirical results. Feedback Vertex Set on undirected and unweighted graphs. 
Implementation of Broadcast Domination Algorithms for Interval Graphs, SeriesParallel Graphs, and Trees
(The University of Bergen, 2004) 
An improved workflow for image and laserbased virtual geological outcrop modelling
(The University of Bergen, 20130315)Photorealistic 3D models, representing an object’s surface geometry textured with conventional photography, are used for visualization, interpretation and spatial measurement in many disparate fields, such as cultural ... 
Improvements and extensions to the configuration tools of the TaskManager HLT software in the ALICE experiment at CERN
(The University of Bergen, 2007)This thesis concerns work done to improve andextend software that is used to configure nodesand trigger software in HLT under the ALICEexperiment at CERN. HLT is a large computercluster that will be used to reduce data ... 
Improving Efficiency in Parameter Estimation Using the Hamiltonian Monte Carlo Algorithm
(The University of Bergen, 2008)This thesis investigates three approaches to improve the performance of the Hamiltonian Monte Carlo algorithm. The first approach enhances the Hamiltonian Monte Carlo by suppressing random walk in the Gibbs sampling using ... 
Improving Parallel Sparse Matrixvector Multiplication
(The University of Bergen, 20131219)Sparse Matrixvector Multiplication (SMvM) is a mathematical technique encountered in many programs and computations and is often heavily used. Solving SMvM in parallel allows for bigger instances to be solved, and problems ... 
The Inclusion Problem for Regular Expressions
(Springer, 2010)This paper presents a new polynomialtime algorithm for the inclusion problem for certain pairs of regular expressions. The algorithm is not based on construction of finite automata, and can therefore be faster than the ... 
The index tracking problem with a limit on portfolio size
(The University of Bergen, 20141119)For a passive fund manager tracking a benchmark, it is not uncommon to select some, and not all the assets in the index to his portfolio. In this thesis, we consider the problem of minimizing the tracking error under the ...
