Heute habe ich meine Seminararbeit in Diskreter Mathematik an der FernUni Hagen vervollständigt. Ich möchte mich bei Prof. Hochstättler bedanken für die erfahrene Leitung und planvolle Einführung in die interessanten Gebiete der Design Theorie und endlicher Geometrien. Die Arbeit ist auf deutsch und unter folgendem Link downloadbar.

Die Entwicklung von Differenzenmengen in der Design Theorie begann 1938 mit einer algebraischen Untersuchung endlicher projektiver Geometrien von James Singer. Nach Einführung der wichtigsten Grundbegriffe der Design Theorie und projektiver Geometrien werden in dieser Ausarbeitung die beiden Resultate von Singer entwickelt. Die Existenz einer Kollineation mit Periode \frac{n^{d+1}-1}{n-1} führt zur Definition von Differenzenmengen und beide Ergebnisse liefern elegante Konstruktionsverfahren für PG(d,p^k).

Update Release of STX B+ Tree 0.8.6

Posted on 2011-05-18 12:44 by Timo Bingmann at Permlink with 1 Comments. Tags: c++ stx-btree

After four years I have decided to release an updated version 0.8.6 of the STX B+ Tree C++ Template Classes package. The updated release contains all patches that have accumulated in my inbox over the years. So yes, please send me patches for this project, it is not in vain! Below the highlights on the changes in this release:

I also reran the speed test done back in 2007 on my new hardware and compared the results with the old data. Due to the larger L2 cache sizes in my new Intel Core i7, the B-tree speed-up first starts to show at about 100,000 integer items, rather than 16,000 items with my older Pentium 4. This might also have something to do with the new CPU using 64-bit pointers and thus requiring larger nodes for child references. Read the complete speed test here.
