      The stroboscopic evolution of a time-periodically driven isolated quantum system can always be described by an effective time-independent Hamiltonian. Whether this concept can be generalized to open Floquet systems, described ...
    • Joystick versus mouse in first person shooters: Mouse is faster than joystick

      Many gamers use desktop or laptop computers with a mouse when gaming, instead of a special purpose gaming input device such as a joystick. This study compared the hitting speed and success rates of mouse and joystick for ...
    • Kahler structures on quantum irreducible flag manifolds 

      Matassa, Marco (Elsevier, 2019-07-11)
      We prove that all quantum irreducible flag manifolds admit Kähler structures, as defined by Ó Buachalla. In order to show this result, we also prove that the differential calculi defined by Heckenberger and Kolb are ...

    • Language and Metamorphosis Supervising Computer Science Students diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome 

      Ribu, Kirsten (Tapir Akademisk Forlag, 2012-11-01)
      Many, although not all people with autistic disorders like Asperger Syndrome, (AS), experience social hindrances and learning difficulties, although they have average or above average intelligence. They interpret the spoken ...
    • Leading the game, losing the competition: identifying leaders and followers in a repeated game 

      Seip, Knut Lehre; Grøn, Øyvind (PLoS One, 2016)
