“Schnorr Randomness”

We will show that the notion of Schnorr randomness is consistent with intuition and leads to the desired statistical properties of random sets. Also we will prove the nice facts we have stated about the Schnorr test.

“Iterated Function Systems and the Inverse Problem”

We introduce iterated function systems, a subset of discrete dynamical systems. A few examples of self similar sets generated by such systems and motivation for the inverse problem of approximation are given. We show some work towards a practical solution of the inverse problem, speci

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
