Musical Gesture Through The Human Computer Interface: An Investigation Using Information Theory, Michael Vincent Blandino
Musical Gesture Through The Human Computer Interface: An Investigation Using Information Theory, Michael Vincent Blandino
LSU Doctoral Dissertations
This study applies information theory to investigate human ability to communicate using continuous control sensors with a particular focus on informing the design of digital musical instruments. There is an active practice of building and evaluating such instruments, for instance, in the New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME) conference community. The fidelity of the instruments can depend on the included sensors, and although much anecdotal evidence and craft experience informs the use of these sensors, relatively little is known about the ability of humans to control them accurately. This dissertation addresses this issue and related concerns, including continuous control performance ...

Optomechanical Quantum Entanglement, Kahlil Y. Dixon
Optomechanical Quantum Entanglement, Kahlil Y. Dixon
LSU Doctoral Dissertations
As classical technology approaches its limits, exploration of quantum technologies is critical. Quantum optics will be the basis of various cuttingedge research and applications in quantum technology. In particular, quantum optics quite efficacious when applied to quantum networks and the quantum internet. Quantum Optomechanics, a subfield of quantum optics, contains some novel methods for entanglement generation. These entanglement production methods exploit the noise reencoding process, which is most often associated with creating unwanted phase noise in optical circuits. Using the adapted twophoton formalism and experimental results, we simulate (in an experimentally viable parameter space) optomechanical entanglement generation experiments. These simulations ...
Improving Memory Forensics Through Emulation And Program Analysis, Ryan Dominick Maggio
Improving Memory Forensics Through Emulation And Program Analysis, Ryan Dominick Maggio
LSU Doctoral Dissertations
Memory forensics is an important tool in the hands of investigators. However, determining if a computer is infected with malicious software is time consuming, even for experts. Tasks that require manual reverse engineering of code or data structures create a significant bottleneck in the investigative workflow. Through the application of emulation software and symbolic execution, these strains have been greatly lessened, allowing for faster and more thorough investigation. Furthermore, these efforts have reduced the barrier for forensic investigation, so that reasonable conclusions can be drawn even by nonexpert investigators. While previously Volatility had allowed for the detection of malicious hooks ...

Identification And Reduction Of Scattered Light Noise In Ligo, Siddharth Soni
LSU Doctoral Dissertations
We ushered into a new era of gravitational wave astronomy in 2015 when Advanced LIGO gravitational wave detectors in Livingston, Louisiana and Hanford, Washington observed a gravitational wave signal from the merger of binary black holes. The first detected GW150914 was a part of first Observing run (O1) and since then there have been a total of 3 Observing runs. Advanced Virgo detector in Cascina, Italy joined the efforts in the third Observing run (O3) which spanned from April 1, 2019, to March 27, 2020. It was split into O3a and O3b with a month long break between them, during ...
EnergyConstrained Distinguishability Measures For Assessing Performance In Quantum Information Processing, Kunal Sharma
EnergyConstrained Distinguishability Measures For Assessing Performance In Quantum Information Processing, Kunal Sharma
LSU Doctoral Dissertations
The aim of this thesis is to develop a framework for assessing performance in quantum information processing with continuous variables. In particular, we focus on quantifying the fundamental limitations on communication and computation over bosonic Gaussian systems. Due to their infinitedimensional structure, we make a realistic assumption of energy constraints on the input states of continuousvariable (CV) quantum operations. Our first contribution is to show that energyconstrained distinguishability measures can be used to establish tight upper bounds on the communication capacities of phaseinsensitive, bosonic Gaussian channels  thermal, amplifier, and additivenoise channels. We then prove that an optimal Gaussian input state ...
Connectivity Of Matroids And Polymatroids, Zachary R. Gershkoff
Connectivity Of Matroids And Polymatroids, Zachary R. Gershkoff
LSU Doctoral Dissertations
This dissertation is a collection of work on matroid and polymatroid connectivity. Connectivity is a useful property of matroids that allows a matroid to be decomposed naturally into its connected components, which are like blocks in a graph. The CunninghamEdmonds tree decomposition further gives a way to decompose matroids into 3connected minors. Much of the research below concerns alternate senses in which matroids and polymatroids can be connected. After a brief introduction to matroid theory in Chapter 1, the main results of this dissertation are given in Chapters 2 and 3. Tutte proved that, for an element e of a ...
Evaluation Of Algorithms For Randomizing Key Item Locations In Game Worlds, Caleb Johnson
Evaluation Of Algorithms For Randomizing Key Item Locations In Game Worlds, Caleb Johnson
LSU Master's Theses
In the past few years, game randomizers have become increasingly popular. In general, a game randomizer takes some aspect of a game that is usually static and shuffles it somehow. In particular, in this paper we will discuss the type of randomizer that shuffles the locations of items in a game where certain key items are needed to traverse the game world and access some of these locations. Examples of these types of games include series such as The Legend of Zelda and Metroid.
In order to accomplish this shuffling in such a way that the player is able to ...
Applications Of Quantum Optics: From The Quantum Internet To Analogue Gravity, Anthony Brady
Applications Of Quantum Optics: From The Quantum Internet To Analogue Gravity, Anthony Brady
LSU Doctoral Dissertations
The aim of this thesis is to highlight applications of quantum optics in two very distinct fields: spacebased quantum communication and the Hawking effect in analogue gravity. Regarding the former: We simulate and analyze a constellation of satellites, equipped with entangled photonpair sources, which provide ondemand entanglement distribution ser vices to terrestrial receiver stations. Satellite services are especially relevant for longdistance quantumcommunication scenarios, as the loss in satellitebased schemes scales more favor ably with distance than in optical fibers or in atmospheric links, though establishing quantum resources in the spacedomain is expensive. We thus develop an optimization technique which balances ...
The Dna Cloud: Is It Alive?, Theodoros Bargiotas
The Dna Cloud: Is It Alive?, Theodoros Bargiotas
LSU Doctoral Dissertations
In this analysis, I will firstly be presenting the current knowledge concerning the materiality of the internet based Cloud, which I will henceforth be referring to as simply the Cloud. For organisation purposes I have created two umbrella categories under which I place the ongoing research in the field. Scholars have been addressing the issue of Cloud materiality through broadly two prisms: sociological materiality and geopolitical materiality. The literature of course deals with the intricacies of the Cloud based on its present ferromagnetic storage functionality. However, developments in synthetic biology have caused private tech companies and University spinoffs to flirt ...
Nonlinear Potential Analysis On Sobolev Multiplier Spaces, Keng Hao Ooi
Nonlinear Potential Analysis On Sobolev Multiplier Spaces, Keng Hao Ooi
LSU Doctoral Dissertations
We characterize preduals and Kothe duals to a class of Sobolev multiplier type spaces. Our results fit in well with the modern theory of function spaces of harmonic analysis and are also applicable to nonlinear partial differential equations. As a maneuver, we make use of several tools from nonlinear potential theory, weighted norm inequalities, and the theory of Banach function spaces to obtain our results. After characterizing the preduals, we establish a capacitary strong type inequality which resolves a special case of a conjecture by David R. Adams. As a consequence, we obtain several equivalent norms for Choquet integrals associated ...

Towards A General Framework For Practical Quantum Network Protocols, Sumeet Khatri
LSU Doctoral Dissertations
The quantum internet is one of the frontiers of quantum information science. It will revolutionize the way we communicate and do other tasks, and it will allow for tasks that are not possible using the current, classical internet. The backbone of a quantum internet is entanglement distributed globally in order to allow for such novel applications to be performed over long distances. Experimental progress is currently being made to realize quantum networks on a small scale, but much theoretical work is still needed in order to understand how best to distribute entanglement and to guide the realization of largescale quantum ...

It is expected that all astrophysical black holes in equilibrium are well described by the Kerr solution. Moreover, any black hole far away from equilibrium, such as one initially formed in a compact binary merger or by the collapse of a massive star, will eventually reach a final equilibrium Kerr state. At sufficiently late times in this process of reaching equilibrium, we expect that the black hole is modeled as a perturbation around the final state. The emitted gravitational waves will then be damped sinusoids with frequencies and damping times given by the quasinormal mode spectrum of the final Kerr ...
Characterization, Immobilization, And Polymer Related Applications Of Watermelon Seed Powder, A Practical Source Of Urease Enzyme, Anthony Quan Quoc Mai
Characterization, Immobilization, And Polymer Related Applications Of Watermelon Seed Powder, A Practical Source Of Urease Enzyme, Anthony Quan Quoc Mai
LSU Doctoral Dissertations
Urease enzyme was crystallized almost a century ago, and to this day its intrinsic stability is not ideal for everyday applications. This work introduces a new process by which a naturally encapsulated material, watermelon seed powder (WMSP), is characterized for its stability and activity. WMSP enzymatic activity has been measured for over a year at various storage conditions—exposed to ambient atmosphere for a year, WMSP retained above 90% activity. In aqueous conditions, the enzyme maintained above 60% activity after two months; with the addition of a preservative that number stays at about 90%. There is a pH shift of ...

Cosmological gammaray bursts (GRBs) are known to arise from distinct progenitor channels: short GRBs mostly from neutron star mergers and long GRBs from a rare type of corecollapse supernova (CCSN) called collapsars. Highly magnetized neutron stars called magnetars also generate energetic, shortduration gammaray transients called magnetar giant flares (MGFs). Three have been observed from the Milky Way and its satellite galaxies, and they have long been suspected to constitute a third class of extragalactic GRBs. We report the unambiguous identification of a distinct population of four local (<5 Mpc) short GRBs, adding GRB 070222 to previously discussed events. While identified solely based on alignment with nearby starforming galaxies, their rise time and isotropic energy release are independently inconsistent with the larger short GRB population at >99.9% confidence. These properties, the host galaxies, and nondetection in gravitational waves ...
A Conjecture On The Irregularity Function For Local Geometric Langlands Parameters And The Formal FrenkelGross Connection, Andrew Alaniz
A Conjecture On The Irregularity Function For Local Geometric Langlands Parameters And The Formal FrenkelGross Connection, Andrew Alaniz
LSU Doctoral Dissertations
For a simple complex algebraic group $G$, M. Kamgarpour and D. Sage have shown that the adjoint irregularity of an irregular singular flat $G$bundle on the formal punctured disc is bounded from below by the rank of $G$, moreover the rank is realized by the formal FrenkelGross connection. This is a geometric analog of a conjecture of Gross and Reeder on the swan conductor of arithmetic local Langlands parameters. In this work, we explore an interesting combinatorial problem which arises when trying to consider the minimal value of the irregularity function with respect to an arbitrary representation of $G$.
Distributed Load Testing By Modeling And Simulating User Behavior, Chester Ira Parrott
Distributed Load Testing By Modeling And Simulating User Behavior, Chester Ira Parrott
LSU Doctoral Dissertations
Modern humanmachine systems such as microservices rely upon agile engineering practices which require changes to be tested and released more frequently than classically engineered systems. A critical step in the testing of such systems is the generation of realistic workloads or load testing. Generated workload emulates the expected behaviors of users and machines within a system under test in order to find potentially unknown failure states. Typical testing tools rely on static testing artifacts to generate realistic workload conditions. Such artifacts can be cumbersome and costly to maintain; however, even modelbased alternatives can prevent adaptation to changes in a system ...
