  • Parallel algorithms for computing finite semigroups 

    Jonusas, Julius; Mitchell, J. D.; Pfeiffer, M. (2017-06-19) - Journal article
    In this paper, we present two algorithms based on the Froidure-Pin Algorithm for computing a finite semigroup. If U is any semigroup, and A be a subset of U, then we denote by ⟨A⟩ the least subsemigroup of U containing A.  ...
  • Notes on a semigroup related to the dicyclic group Qn 

    Sorouhesh, Mohammad R.; Campbell, Colin M. (2017-09-21) - Journal article
    We consider certain properties of the semigroup S defined by the Presentation S = 〈a,b : a2ⁿ⁻¹ = 1,b2 = a2ⁿ⁻², ba = ab2ⁿ⁻¹-1〉, (n ≥ 3).
  • On the star-height of subword counting languages and their relationship to Rees zero-matrix semigroups 

    Bourne, Tom; Ruškuc, Nik (2016-11-15) - Journal article
    Given a word w over a finite alphabet, we consider, in three special cases, the generalised star-height of the languages in which w occurs as a contiguous subword (factor) an exact number of times and of the languages in ...
  • Effect of first line cancer treatment on the ovarian reserve and follicular density in girls under the age of 18 years 

    El Issaoui, Meryam; Giorgine, Veronica; Mamsen, Linn S.; Rechnitzer, Catherine; Birkebæk, Niels; Clausen, Niels; Kelsey, Thomas William; Andersen, Claus Yding (2016-12) - Journal article
    Objective: To study the impact of first-line antineoplastic treatment on the ovarian reserve in young girls returning for ovarian tissue cryopreservation (OTC) in connection with a relapse. Design: Retrospective case-control ...
  • Generalized support and formal development of constraint propagators 

    Caldwell, James Lynn; Gent, Ian Philip; Nightingale, Peter William (2017-08-31) - Journal article
    Constraint programming is a family of techniques for solving combinatorial problems, where the problem is modelled as a set of decision variables (typically with finite domains) and a set of constraints that express relations ...
