A glimpse to the world of Cyber Physical Systems that are changing the world as we know. From the isolated Monolithic Systems to the conception of System of Systems that are able to interact with the surrounding physical world.
Data-Origin Authentication: the process of verifying that the data comes from the source it claims coming from. This is typically done using some cryptographic technique such as digital signatures or message authentication codes.
A concise summary of the core concepts in linear algebra. In the attached document I cover fundamental topics such as vectors, matrices, systems of linear equations, and transformations. Understanding these concepts is essential for tackling a wide range of mathematical and real-world problems.
During World War II, the Enigma machine presented a formidable challenge to the Allied forces as they struggled to decipher encrypted German messages. However, a team of brilliant codebreakers, including Alan Turing, at Britain’s Bletchley Park successfully cracked Enigma’s codes, turning the tide of the war.
Number theory, or higher arithmetic, is a branch of pure mathematics devoted primarily in the study of integers. Abstract algebra is involved in the study of abstractions such as groups, rings and fields.
Coverage testing measures the effectiveness of test suites by determining the code coverage. It identifies areas of the code that haven’t been executed, enabling to improve test quality and enhance software reliability.
