Last Year, President Clinton’s State Of The Union Address Came Just As
Last year, President Clinton's State of the Union address came just as the Monica Lewinsky scandal was exploding into public view. Clinton nevertheless gave a rousing speech, memorable for his call to ?save Social Security first.? This year, the address came as Clinton stands trial in the Senate. Once again, he avoided any mention of his political troubles, instead stressing that the country's prosperity must be used to prepare for the burden of a rapidly aging population in the next century.

CS Senior Seminar Imagine a computer whose memory is exponentially larger than its apparent physical size; a computer that can manipulate an exponential set of inputs simultaneously; a computer that computes in the twilight zone of space. You would be thinking of a quantum computer. Relatively few and simple concepts from quantum mechanics are needed to make quantum computers a possibility. The subtlety has been in learning to manipulate these concepts. Is s

Data Encryption The electronic age has brought forth many technological advances. With these advances came the need for security and tighter control on how we send information electronically over the Internet or through a network. Date encryption is, in its simplest terms, the translation of data into a secret code. In order to read an encrypted file, the receiver of the file must obtain a secret key that will enable him to decrypt the file. A deeper look into cryptography, cryptanalysis, and th

Today, bureaucratic ideas are still widely used among organizations, however a shift in thinking occurred and the question was asked, What are the alternat

Crying of Lot 49 The philosophy behind all Pynchon novels lies in the synthesis of philosophers and modern physicists. Ludwig Wittgenstein viewed the world as a totality of facts, not of things.1 This idea can be combined with a physicist's view of the world as a closed system that tends towards chaos. Pynchon asserts that the measure of the world is its entropy.2 He extends this metaphor to his fictional world. He envelops the reader, through various means, within the system of The Crying of
