Driebergen, Tim (author)The minimum vertex cover problem (MinVertexCover) is an important optimization problem in graph theory, with applications in numerous fields outside of mathematics. As MinVertexCover is an NPhard problem, there currently exists no efficient algorithm to find an optimal solution on arbitrary graphs. We consider quantum optimization algorithms,...master thesis 2023

Li, Jingya (author)Finite element analysis and multibody dynamics are popular mathematical modeling techniques for sev eral mechanical applications. The finite element method is a costly method from a runtime standpoint. Moreover, both multibody dynamics and finite element methods require approximating the geometry of the application either by meshing or by...master thesis 2023

Ruiter, Stijn (author)<br/>The Material Point Method (MPM) is a numerical method primarily used in the simulation of large deforming or multiphase materials. An example of such a problem is a landslide or snow simulation. The MPM uses Lagrangian particles (material points) to store the interested physical quantities. These particles can move freely in the spatial...master thesis 2022

van Ruiten, Frank (author)Physics Informed Neural Networks are a relatively new subject of study in the area of numerical mathematics. In this thesis, we take a look at part of the work that has been done in this area up until now, with the ultimate goal to develop a new type of PINN that improves upon the old concept. We introduce the concept of parameterized PINNs,...master thesis 2022

Popa, Vlad (author)In an attempt to find alternatives for solving partial differential equations (PDEs)<br/>with traditional numerical methods, a new field has emerged which incorporates<br/>the residual of a PDE into the loss function of an Artificial Neural Network. This<br/>method is called PhysicsInformed Neural Network (PINN). In this thesis, we study dense...bachelor thesis 2022

Kakkar, Samarth (author)The main objective of this thesis was to explore the capabilities of neural networks in terms of representing governing differential equations, primarily in the purview of fluid/aero dynamic flows. The governing differential equations were accommodated within the loss functions for training the neural networks, thereby making them 'physics...master thesis 2022

Ul Haq, Rana (author)Convectiondominated flow problems are wellknown to have nonphysical oscillations near steep gradients or discontinuities in the solution when solved with standard numerical methods, such as finite elements or finite difference methods. To overcome this limitation, algebraic flux correction (AFC) can be used, which is a stabilization method....master thesis 2022

de Koning, Bart (author)Differentiable raytracing is an exciting new development in computer graphics to approach all sorts of 3D scene design problems by obtaining gradients of renders produced by raytracing with respect to parameters that define the scene. These gradients can then be incorporated in a gradientdescent type optimization pipeline.<br/><br/>One such...master thesis 2022

Oerlemans, Marek (author)In this work, we consider how to optimize an optical system, specifically one with diffractive optical elements (DOE). We start by describing optical theory called Fourier optics also known as wave optics. This type of optics is found by making assumptions from the Maxwell equations for magnetic and electrical fields. This leads us to the...master thesis 2022

van der Linde, Stan (author)Recent developments in quantum annealing have shown promising results in logistics, life sciences, machine learning and more. However, in the field of geophysical sciences the applications have been limited. A quantum annealing application was developed for residual statics estimation. Residual statics estimation is a highly nonlinear problem...master thesis 2021

van Schie, Sebastiaan (author)This thesis poses a new geometric formulation for compressible Euler flows. A partial decomposition of this model into Roe variables is applied; this turns mass density, momentum and kinetic energy into product quantities of the Roe variables. Lie derivative advection operators of weak forms constructed with this decomposed model naturally...master thesis 2021

van Mil, Juliette (author)This report reviews two quantum key distribution (QKD) protocols: the BB84 protocol and the measurement device independent (MDI) QKD protocol. The goal of this report is to recreate the security proof of the BB84 protocol, to generate the secret key rate for a practical application of the BB84 protocol, both with and without decoy states, and to...bachelor thesis 2021

Crijns, Lucas (author)This project aims to recreate intensity patterns using Fraunhofer diffraction as a means of simulation. These intensity patterns are created by phase shifting specific parts of an incoming field of light. These phase shifts are determined by a Bspline surface, which is in turn controlled by socalled control points. Only a handful of control...bachelor thesis 2021
