Deciphering Secure Chaotic CommunicationMay 03 1999A simple technique for decoding an unknown modulated chaotic time-series is presented. We point out that, by fitting a polynomial model to the modulated chaotic signal, the error in the fit gives sufficient information to decode the modulating signal. ... More
On exact infinity-categories and the Theorem of the HeartDec 20 2012Apr 23 2014We introduce a notion of exact quasicategory, and we prove an analogue of Amnon Neeman's Theorem of the Heart for Waldhausen K-theory.
Higher point MHV amplitudes in N=4 Supersymmetric Yang-Mills TheoryMar 20 2009Apr 16 2009We compute the even part of the two-loop seven-point planar MHV amplitude in N=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory. We find that the even part is expressed in terms of conformal integrals with simple rational coefficients. We also compute the even part ... More
