In this computer science/number theory/mathematics blog post, we discuss the RSA cryptosystem, one of the simplest models of public-key cryptography. We also discuss Pollard’s p – 1 factorization method, an algorithm used to factorize large integers.
In this electrical engineering blog post, we discuss smart grids, a power system infrastructure technology that is becoming increasingly common in advanced and developing economies. Also included are brief discussions on two related concepts: smart metering and demand response.
In this electronics/chemical engineering blog post, we discuss thermal oxidation of silicon wafers, a fundamental process of microelectronic fabrication, and how it can be described with the Deal-Grove model.
