Exchanges now have become popular and carry out over 99% of all daily transactions, totaling hundreds of millions of dollars. Despite that exchanges handling ...
  • DaoCron. Job Scheduler for Autonomous Observation Units in the Arctic Tundra 

    Moe Carstens, Martin Sommerseth (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-05-31)
    DaoCron is a service which enables users to schedule tasks periodically. The Distributed Arctic Observatory (DAO) aims to improve the data collection from the arctic tundra using Observation Units (OUs). These OUs are given a set of tasks which they are expected to schedule at certain intervals. In order to schedule these tasks at certain time-intervals one can make use of Cron, which is a tool for ...
  • Verification of the Chord protocol in TLA+ 

    Lund, Jørgen Aarmo (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-05-15)
    In traditional software engineering methodologies, software correctness is established through testing and progressive fault mitigation. Safety properties are established by demonstrating that a sufficiently large number of test cases fail to violate them. In contrast, formal verification methods permit a systems design process where desired safety properties are stated outright in the system ...

  • Incremental Information Retrieval. Finding new information by registering and ignoring already seen search results 

    Johannessen, Erlend (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-05-15)
    When searching the internet today we want immediate answers. We often search for a person, or a solution to a problem, or some topic we are interested in. The result quality of this kind of search is pretty good, most of the time we get the answers we need. The results, though, seems to be minor variations on the same results. But what if the search for information is of a different nature, more ...
