## Producing language reclamation by decolonising 'language'

We demonstrate the all-optical ultrafast manipulation and read-out of optical transitions in a single negatively charged self-assembled InAs quantum dot, an important step towards ultrafast control of the resident spin. Experiments performed at zero magnetic field show the excitation and decay of the trion (negatively charged exciton) as well as Ra...

From their beginnings in 1908, U.S. credit unions have grown into a trillion-dollar industry with more than 100 million members. Despite many similarities, credit unions have always differed fundamentally from banks. One fundamental difference was that share accounts in credit unions, unlike bank deposits, were not debt. Thus, credit unions had opt...

We give a short proof that any comparison-based n^(1-epsilon)-approximation algorithm for the 1-dimensional Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP) requires Omega(n log n) comparisons.

This report presents notes from the first eight lectures of the class Many Models of Complexity taught by Laszlo Lovasz at Princeton University in the fall of 1990. The topic is evasiveness of graph properties: given a graph property, how many edges of the graph an algorithm must check in the worst case before it knows whether the property holds.

We describe the first nearly linear-time approximation algorithms for explicitly given mixed packing/covering linear programs, and for (non-metric) fractional facility location. We also describe the first parallel algorithms requiring only near-linear total work and finishing in polylog time. The algorithms compute $(1+\epsilon)$-approximate soluti...

We consider the problem of choosing Euclidean points to maximize the sum of their weighted pairwise distances, when each point is constrained to a ball centered at the origin. We derive a dual minimization problem and show strong duality holds (i.e., the resulting upper bound is tight) when some locally optimal configuration of points is affinely i...

AbstractThe processes of local adaptation and ecological speciation are often strongly shaped by biotic interactions such as competition and predation. One of the strongest lines of evidence that biotic interactions drive evolution comes from repeated divergence of lineages in association with repeated changes in the community of interacting specie...
