Fast development of tracking devices has made trajectory outlier detection(TOD) possible and meaningful. Given a set of trajectories T, a TOD algorithm outputs a subset of T, of which trajectories are different from mostof the other trajectories in some aspect(s). These trajectories, namely outliers, can indicate important or interesting...

To get a clear picture of the earth crust the Helmholtz equation needs to be
solved and a high wave number is needed in order to provide fine grain details.
The Stabilised BiConjugate Gradient method needs to be implemented to solve
the Helmholtz equation. This is done on a Maxeler data flow machine to improve
calculation times....
