Discrimination of non-local correlations

Montina, Alberto ; Wolf, Stefan

In: Entropy, 2019, vol. 21, no. 2, p. 104

In view of the importance of quantum non-locality in cryptography, quantum computation, and communication complexity, it is crucial to decide whether a given correlation exhibits non-locality or not. As proved by Pitowski, this problem is NP- complete, and is thus computationally intractable unless NP is equal to P. In this paper, we first prove that the Euclidean distance of given...

Optimization of anchor nodes placement in wireless localization networks

Balac, Katarina ; Malek, Miroslaw (Dir.) ; Prevostini, Mauro (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2019 ; 2019INFO009.

This work focuses on optimizing node placement for time-of-flight-based wireless localization networks. Main motivation are critical safety applications. The first part of my thesis is an experimental study on in-tunnel vehicle localization. In- tunnel localization of vehicles is crucial for emergency management, especially for large trucks transporting dangerous goods such as inflammable...

Efficient combinatorial optimization algorithms for logistic problems

Papapanagiotou, Vasileios ; Gambardella, Luca Maria (Dir.) ; Montemanni, Roberto (Codir.) ; Schmidhuber, Jürgen (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2018 ; 2018INFO011.

The field of logistics and combinatorial optimization features a wealth of NP-hard problems that are of great practical importance. For this reason it is important that we have efficient algorithms to provide optimal or near-optimal solutions. In this work, we study, compare and develop Sampling-Based Metaheuristics and Exact Methods for logistic problems that are important for their...
