With the rapid development of Quantum Computers (QC) and QC Simulators, there will be an increased demand for functioning Quantum Algorithms in the near future. Some of the most ubiquitously useful algorithms are solvers for linear systems of equations. Since the conception of the Quantum Linear Solver Algorithm (QLSA) by Harrow, Hassidim and...

Quantum error correction is needed for future quantum computers. Classical error correcting codes are not suitable for this due to the nature of quantum mechanics. Therefore, new codes need to be developed. A promising candidate is the toric code, a surface code, because of its locality and its high error correcting capability and thresholds ...

Numerical models are paramount in describing the complex physical world around us. They are often based on non-linear functions, which have to be solved in order to run a simulation. The first goal of this thesis is to compare the Jacobian-free Newton-Krylov method against the regular Newton-Raphson method for solving non-linear equations. When...

With the internet growing exponentially, the amount of information stored digitally becomes enormous. Storage systems are expected to withstand failures to prevent the loss of data. To provide the reliability, data is stored multiple times in different storage units. If in this case, one of the storage unit goes offline, a backup of the data...

In this thesis, two topics are studied: mathematical inequalities and non-linear quantum entanglement witnesses. First, various inequalities, like the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality (on finite dimensional vector spaces) and Jensen's inequality, along with their extensions and generalisations, are proved and discussed. The intimate relationship...

Time series analysis is used to predict future behaviour of processes and is widely used in the finance sector. In this paper we will analyse the modelling of multivariate time series of financial data using vector autoregressive processes. The goal is that the reader will understand the presented models and could theoretically perform time...

In dit onderzoek zijn twee manieren van A/B-testen met elkaar vergeleken. A/B-testen is het vergelijken van verschillende website versies om te achterhalen welke versie voor een hogere opbrengt zorgt. Consumenten krijgen afzonderlijk meerdere versies van een website te zien: versie A, versie B, versie C, et cetera. De websites verschillen op...

The Abelian sandpile model was first introduced by Bak, Tang and Wiesenfeld in 1987. Since then, a lot of researchers have studied this model and similar models, all related by the concept of self-organized criticality. In this thesis, we study a variant on the classical model where dissipative and anti-dissipative vertices are incorporated in...

Interest in phylogenetic trees for histories of species and DNA has spawned many problems, one of which is TreeContainment; a problem that asks whether a tree is contained within a network. The TreeContainment problem is proven to be NP-hard for general trees and networks, however it is solvable in polynomial time for networks that meet the tree...

Solar energy is being increasingly used in many sectors as it is clean energy which requires minimum operation and maintenance costs [1]. One of the potential _elds of applications of solar energy is the aviation industry, speci_cally in small aircraft and monitoring devices. Many research projects have been conducted in developing solar energy...

This document describes the design process and implementation of the lighting and casing of a battery free jogger light. This light is meant to increase the safety of joggers in dark environments. The most effective way of increasing the jogger's conspicuity will be researched by considering different light sources and driver circuits to...

As long as a wave has a large enough wavelength, it should reflect off of smooth surfaces specularly: that is what the law of reflection states. This phenomenon is widely known, and used in for instance sonars. Electrons that reflect off of boundaries within conductors should abide this law as well, due to the particle-wave duality. However, it...

In this project, quantum cloning machines are analyzed that take in N quantum systems in the same unknown pure state and output M quantum systems with M > N, such that the output best resembles the ideal, but impossible output of an M-fold tensor product of the pure input state. The proof of Keyl and Werner is reviewed in which a unique...

The goal of the research described in this thesis was to investigate the basis of dissipation dilution as well as make it comprehensible. In the written literature we could find that the kinetic energy of an oscillating beam is stored into two types of potential energy~\cite{Kippenberg, Kotthaus}. A dissipative bending component and a...

Fraudulent behavior within online marketplaces is a prominent but unsolved problem. Most marketplace operators try to mitigate this behavior by serving as the central authority. This approach requires user data collection and is not privacy-friendly. In an attempt to build a foundation for solving the fraud concerns and privacy issues, this...

In this thesis we study a class of interacting particle systems sharing a duality property. This class includes the Symmetric Inclusion Process (SIP(2k)), the Symmetric Exclusion Process (SEP(2j)) and the Independent Random Walkers (IRW). When these systems are in equilibrium (namely they are isolated from the exterior) they admit stationary...

During oil drilling, the position of wells is indirectly determined by measurements near the drilling bit. However, the measurements are disturbed by noise causing errors in the measurements. It is important for large oil companies like Shell to determine the position of wells with a certain degree of uncertainty. Therefore, the main objective...
