A Novel Range Test [chapter]

Kun Peng, Colin Boyd, Ed Dawson, Eiji Okamoto
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In a range test, one party holds a ciphertext and needs to test whether the message encrypted in the ciphertext is within a certain interval range.  ...  In this paper, a range test protocol is proposed, where the party holding the ciphertext asks another party holding the private key of the encryption algorithm to help him.  ...  When the precise range test outputs TRUE, A 2 's only knowledge is the result of the precise range test without A 1 's collusion as the precise range test outputs TRUE if and only if both basic range tests  ...

A Novel Two-Step Laser Ranging Technique for a Precision Test of the Theory of Gravity

Konstantin Penanen, Talso Chui
2004 Nuclear Physics B - Proceedings Supplements  
We describe a novel two-step laser ranging technique, which largely eliminates the effects of non-gravity acceleration sources and enables celestial mechanics checks with unprecedented precision.  ...  Since dark matter dominates the galactic acceleration, DMX can also test whether dark matter obeys the equivalence principle to a level of 100 ppm by ranging to several proof masses of different composition  ...  Science return of such measurements include tests of strong equivalence principle (Lunar Laser Ranging (LLR), [1,2]) and general relativity tests (LAGEOS series [3] ).  ...
