Efficient receiptfree voting based on homomorphic encryption
, 2000
"... Abstract. Voting schemes that provide receiptfreeness prevent voters from proving their cast vote, and hence thwart votebuying and coercion. We analyze the security of the multiauthority voting protocol of Benaloh and Tuinstra and demonstrate that this protocol is not receiptfree, opposed to what ..."

to what was claimed in the paper and was believed before. Furthermore, we propose the first practicable receiptfree voting scheme. Its only physical assumption is the existence of secret oneway communication channels from the authorities to the voters, and due to the public verifiability of the tally
A topology preserving level set method for geometric deformable models
 IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON PATTERN ANALYSIS AND MACHINE INTELLIGENCE
, 2003
"... Active contour and surface models, also known as deformable models, are powerful image segmentation techniques. Geometric deformable models implemented using level set methods have advantages over parametric models due to their intrinsic behavior, parameterization independence, and ease of implement ..."

of implementation. However, a long claimed advantage of geometric deformable models—the ability to automatically handle topology changes—turns out to be a liability in applications where the object to be segmented has a known topology that must be preserved. In this paper, we present a new class of geometric
A Cost and Speed Model for kary ncube Wormhole Routers
 HIT INTERCONNECTS '93
, 1993
"... A great deal of research has been published on the performance of wormhole routers with advanced features such as adaptivity and virtual lanes. In most cases, the effectiveness of such novel routers is evaluated on the basis of the achieved network throughput (channel utilization), ignoring the impo ..."

, the complexity of adaptive routers significantly increases their setup delay and flow control cycle times, implying that claims of performance advantages in channel utilization and low load latency must be carefully balanced against losses in achievable implementation speed.
Bayesian Estimation of Outstanding Claims Reserves
 North American Actuarial Journal
, 2002
"... When a given process is seasonal and the seasonal pattern is stable the proportion of events that occur in a given fraction of the total period of the seasonality is constant over time. In this paper we present an application of Bayesian forecasting methods with stable seasonal patterns to insurance ..."

the computation of forecasts for outstanding claims when there is not enough data to carry out time series analysis. Two different exact models are presented: one for discrete processes and one for continuous, which can be applied to forecast the number and amount of claims, respectively. The advantage of using
BACKGROUND: The Advantage of Fusion
"... claimed to have tapped nuclear power in a simple electrochemical cell. "It could be the end of the fossil fuel age: the end of oil and coal. And the end, incidentally, of many of our worries about global warming.” ..."

The Competitive Advantages of Free Software
, 2001
"... This article proposes an analogy between organic life forms and software packages. It uses Charles Darwin's arguments of natural selection, such as increased variability and ease of reproduction, to support the claim that Free Software enjoys important competitive advantages over proprietary so ..."

Advantage in the discrete Voronoi game
, 2013
"... We study the discrete Voronoi game, where two players alternately claim vertices of a graph for t rounds. In the end, the remaining vertices are divided such that each player receives the vertices that are closer to his or her claimed vertices. We prove that there are graphs for which the second pla ..."

A claim for sequential designs of experiments∗
, 2008
"... We recapitulate several hypotheses testing procedures that leave the total sample size open. This drawback is outweighed by typically reduced sample sizes due to the opportunity of early stopping. Whereas sequential methods are standards in quality control and especially clinical trials, experiment ..."
Abstract
 Add to MetaCart
, experimental economists apparently still favor a fixed sample size design. In this paper we illustrate the advantages of sequential methods (e.g. early stopping, power analysis etc.) and conclude that there is much to learn from clinical trials.
Multidimensional Epistasis and the Advantage of Sex

They claim that more general “ ..."
