Topological and geometrical quantum computation in cohesive Khovanov homotopy type theory
(SPIE-INT SOC OPTICAL ENGINEERING, 2015-05-21)
The recently proposed Cohesive Homotopy Type Theory is exploited as a formal foundation for central concepts in Topological and Geometrical Quantum Computation. Specifically the Cohesive Homotopy Type Theory provides a ...
Possible universal quantum algorithms for generalized Khovanov homology and the Rasmussen's invariant
(SPIE-INT SOC OPTICAL ENGINEERING, 2012-01-01)
Possible quantum algorithms for generalized Khovanov homology and the Rasmussen's invariant are proposed. Such algorithms are resulting from adaptations of the recently proposed Kauffmans` algorithm for the standard Khovanov ...
Topological quantum computation of the Dold-Thom functor
(SPIE-INT SOC OPTICAL ENGINEERING, 2014-05-22)
A possible topological quantum computation of the Dold-Thom functor is presented. The method that will be used is the following: a) Certain 1+1-topological quantum field theories valued in symmetric bimonoidal categories ...
Dynamics of an Electrochemical Biosensor for the Detection of Toxic Substances in Water
(SPIE-INT SOC OPTICAL ENGINEERING, 2016-01-01)
A proposed analytical method focuses on electrolyte transport to the electrode of an electrochemical cell. The recombinant Escherichia coli whole-cell biosensor detects toxicity in water based on a set of biochemical ...
Predicción de las magnitudes de retroceso de algunos sectores acantilados de Antioquia en condiciones de ascenso del nivel del mar – Resultados para el sector de Arboletes
(Sociedad Colombiana de Ingeniería, 2012-08-08)
Sea-level rise related impacts are required for coastal management, especially within littoral fringes with active tectonics and presence of strategic ecosystems likewise Colombian southern Caribbean. “Worst” scenarios ...
Estuarine Light Attenuation Modelling Towards Improved Management of Coastal Fisheries
The ecosystem function of local fisheries holds great societal importance in the coastal zone of Cartagena, Colombia, where coastal communities depend on artisanal fishing for their livelihood and health. These fishing ...
Expanding level of coastal armouring: Case studies from different countries
(COASTAL EDUCATION & RESEARCH FOUNDATION, 2011-01-01)
Concreting the natural shoreline by use of traditional hard protective structures, as well as by port/harbour developments is commonly known as coastal armouring. Over the recent decades the expanding level of coastline ...
The perils of human activity on South American deltas: Lessons from Colombia's experience with soil erosion
(INT ASSOC HYDROLOGICAL SCIENCES, 2013-01-01)
The Andean drainage basins of Colombian deltas exhibit a very delicate variety of ecosystems and environments along its prolonged trajectory, which has made it particularly vulnerable to the onslaught of modernity and human ...

Space-qualified liquid-crystal variable retarders for wide-field-of-view coronagraphs
(SPIE-INT SOC OPTICAL ENGINEERING, 2011-01-01)
Liquid-crystal variable retarders (LCVRs) are an emergent technology for space-based polarimeters, following its success as polarization modulators in ground-based polarimeters and ellipsometers. Wide-field double nematic ...
