Strength and rheological evolution of the lower continental crust

The project will study the processes of deformation and the mechanical strength in the lower continental crust. To date, it is unclear whether this part of the crust behaves as a rigid part of the lithosphere or whether it is mechanically much weaker than the upper mantle so that deformation may...

Studies on Codes for Error Detection

The basic idea of error coding is to introduce redundancy that can be utilized to detect and, for some applications, correct errors that have occurred during a transmission over a channel. Here "transmission" is used in a wide sense, including any process which may corrupt the data, e.g. transmi...
