Sikkens, Duuk (author)Deze scriptie gaat over βN. Wat specifieker: ze gaat over onvergelijkbare elementen in de RudinKeislerorde op βN. βN is een topologische ruimte, het is de ČechStonecompactificatie van de natuurlijke getallen. Er kan over βN echter ook op een meer verzamelingtheoretische manier worden nagedacht, namelijk als de familie van alle ultrafilters op...bachelor thesis 2022

van Prooijen, Birgit (author)While the Minimum Euclidean Distance detection is known to be optimal for channels affected by Gaussian noise, it has been shown that Minimum Pearson Distance detection (MPD) may perform better when the channel is also affected by an unknown offset, though for a good performance some adaptations for classical binary block codes are necessary. It...bachelor thesis 2022

Capel, Judith (author)Nowadays, we produce an enormous amount of data and all this data needs to be stored somewhere. In order to store all this data in an efficient and environmentally friendly way, solutions need to be found. A storage technique that has great potential to be a solution is synthetic DNA based storage.<br/>A DNAstrand is made up of a sequence of...bachelor thesis 2022

Chang, Jakka (author)The Generalized Gamma Distribution (GGD) is a threeparameter distribution with desirable properties. For certain values of the parameters, the GGD can reduce to the gamma, exponential and lognormal distribution, among others. This makes it a flexible distribution that can be used in various scenarios. The problem with implementation of the GGD...bachelor thesis 2022

Geerts, Nathan (author)In this report, a transformer based deep learning proton dose calculation algorithm called Dose Transformer Algorithm (DoTA) is described. This model learns to predict proton dose distributions by being trained with Monte Carlo generated data. Monte Carlo is the golden standard of proton dose calculation because it is very accurate, but it has...bachelor thesis 2022

Swart, Céline (author)The transverse flute can be studied on many aspects. In this thesis the sound waves that can be generated inside the flute are studied on their shape and frequencies. To achieve this, two mathematical models of the sound waves inside a flute are developed. To develop these models, solutions to the second dimensional wave equation are calculated...bachelor thesis 2022

Swinkels, Bart (author)The "Number Hides Game" (NHG) is 2player game played on a board that consists of a row of p consecutive coins. Player I and player II simultaneously choose subsets of m and n consecutive coins respectively. Player II pays the number of coins that lie in the intersection of the subsets to player I. This thesis introduces basic knowledge from the...bachelor thesis 2022

Vermeer, Wiggert (author)Synchronisation refers to the tendency of coupled oscillators to move in phase with one another over time, departing from their own natural frequency. This phenomenon occurs in almost all branches of science, engineering, and social life. Synchronisation is a well understood concept in classical mechanics. Quantum synchronisation involves...bachelor thesis 2022

Mulder, Tim (author)This thesis develops a method to map the surface of an exoplanet. The problem of exoplanet mapping sounds easy to solve. Take a few photographs of an exoplanet and sew them together to create a map of the surface. The telescope required to do this is far beyond our technological capabilities. However, our current telescopes could allow us to...bachelor thesis 2022

Blanken, Sweder (author)In the near future, nextgeneration telescopes will be able to observe Earthlike exoplanets illuminated by their parent stars for long periods of time. As the distance between exoplanet and observer is enormous, exoplanets will only make up a pixel on our image. However, the observed intensity of this pixel will fluctuate over time as the...bachelor thesis 2022

de Graaff, Ruben (author), Fontenai, Nicolas (author)In 2019 the European Aviation Environmental Report stated showed a relative increase in CO2 emissions of 16% compared to 2005 to 2017. It also stated that an increase of 42% is expected according to current models. Aviation is thus a big sector of the global warming problem. The solution to this is to go full electric. There are already more...bachelor thesis 2022

Witmer, Brian (author)Quantum technology is evolving faster than ever. Currently, all eyes are on the quantum computer, the promising computer that can solve problems which are unsolvable for regular computers. In order to understand this new technology, it is necessary to understand the qubit, the basic unit of quantum information. This can be done by means of the...bachelor thesis 2022

van den Belt, Glenn (author)Earthquakes can have tremendous effects. They can result in casualties, massive damage, and hurt the economy. Therefore, one would like to predict earthquakes as early as possible and with the highest accuracy possible. This paper contains the proposal for the optimal predictiontime, which is the time between the execution of a prediction and...bachelor thesis 2022

Bhagat, Naval Tapan (author)Visible Light Positioning (VLP) is an emerging field of research with several possible application. While most stateoftheart VLP systems work with active modulation of light (switching lights on/off rapidly), this poses issues such as the flickering problem and excessive power consumption. In contrast, passive modulation of light (twisting...bachelor thesis 2022

Brookman, Jasper (author)Conventional semiconductor diodes dissipate energy in the form of heat when current passes through them. This is unwanted in, for example, cryogenic environments. Using a superconducting diode could mitigate this problem. These have been made by using special materials or combining multiple different circuit elements. We provide a systematic...bachelor thesis 2022

Narchi, William (author)This paper presents how a convolutional neural network can be constructed in order to recognise gestures using photodiodes and ambient light. A number of candidates are presented and evaluated, with the most performant being adopted for indepth analysis. This network is then compressed in order to be ran on an Arduino Nano 33 BLE...bachelor thesis 2022

Durmuş, Merdan (author)Visible Light Communication (VLC) is becoming an important research area where Visible Light Sources such as LED, Halogen Lamps and even the sun can be used for Wireless Communication. LEDtoCamera Communication is a form of VLC, where the camera can notice intermittent stimuli changes above a certain threshold frequency (flicker fusion...bachelor thesis 2022

Dijkstra, Finn (author)Packages to encode Machine Learned models into optimization problems is an underdeveloped area, despite the advantages is could provide. The main draw of implementing Machine Learned models into optimization models, is that it allows the optimizer to better account for the human experience.<br/>Maragno D., Wiberg H. et al. constructed an...bachelor thesis 2022

Halevy, Avi (author)In this work residual error estimates are constructed using Neural Networks for Finite Element Method. These can be used to do adaptive mesh refinement. Two neural networks are developed the Multilayer Perceptron and the Transformer model. The error estimates are made for 1d poisson equations but the idea will generalise to higher dimensions as...bachelor thesis 2022

van Dam, Otte (author)Previous studies have found that there is a strong correlation between the social presence of a teacher and perceived performance of students, and that an increased cognitive load decreases the effectiveness in problem solving. The objective of this study was to find out to what extend holograms can be used to improve the social presence of the...bachelor thesis 2022
