Ubbens, Otmar (author)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...bachelor thesis 2019

Riegger, Franzi (author)Quantitative analysis of material microstructure is a wellknown method to derive chemical and physical properties of a sample. This includes the segmentation of e.g. Light Optical Microscopy or Scanning Electron Microscopy images where each pixel is assigned to a material. Since some phases such as the γγ’ structure in nickelbased superalloys...master thesis 2019

Verhelst, Hugo (author)With increasing attention to climate change,renewable energy generation has become a major topic for research anddevelopment. Wind and solar energy are generated on land, whereas wave, windand tidal energy generators are getting attention in the offshore domain. Anovel extension of onshore solar energy is the concept of...master thesis 2019

Driebergen, Tim (author)Currently there are no efficient quantum algorithms for the addition of realvalued numbers. In classical computers addition is performed by using barrel shifters, a concept proven to be very inefficient as a quantum circuit due to its many garbage outputs when the barrel shifter is made reversible. This thesis aims to design a quantum algorithm...bachelor thesis 2019

van der Linde, Stan (author)In dit verslag worden de resultaten van literatuuronderzoek naar de voor en<br/>nadelen van floats en posits gepresenteerd. Naar aanleiding van de resultaten is de hypothese opgesteld dat posits een goede "dropin replacement" zouden zijn voor floats vanwege het grotere bereik, de afwezigheid van overflow en underflow en omdat ze enkel één NaN...bachelor thesis 2018

Looman, Menno (author)In this project, an positive integer addition algorithm for quantum computing is analyzed which does not makes use of carry bits. The paper shows a general parallelization method. Using this method, the circuit runs in O(n) time instead of O(n^2). The algorithm is executed with different input sizes and error rates such that usable values are...bachelor thesis 2018

de Koster, Pascal (author)The material point method (MPM) is a numerical method for simulating ground deformations, that combinesthe benefits of a fixed grid with movingmaterial points, which carry the history dependent information of thecontinuum. During each time step, this information is projected to the grid, on which the equations of motionare solved and a...master thesis 2018

van der Lans, Mike (author)Quantum computation is becoming an increasingly interesting field, especially with the rise of real quantum computers. However, current quantum processors contain a few tens of errorprone qubits and the realization of largescale quantum computers is still very challenging. Therefore, quantum computer simulators are particularly suitable for...bachelor thesis 2018

Dolas, Sagar (author)"What Mathematics is to Physics, Data traversal is to Highperformance computing." The world of Computational science has witnessed an exponential expansion of sophisticated numerical algorithms in the last few decades mainly to understand minute details and solve complex physical problems. It has established itself as the third pillar of...master thesis 2017

de Heij, Boudewijn (author)The field of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is constantly finding new ways to improve simulation results. One of the large challenges in CFD, is advection. Advection dominated flows are governed by hyperbolic equations, which pose severe stability issues. Stabilized methods usually add significant numerical diffusion, which alters the...master thesis 2016
