Prevajalski problemi pri prevajanju poljudnoznanstvenih besedil iz slovenščine v angleščino – kontrastivna analiza turističnih besedil s področja
Polonca Vouk, 2011, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: The aim of this thesis was to provide the insight into translation difficulties that occur when translating popular science texts from Slovene into English with special reference to popular science texts as tourist texts from the area of speleology and to investigate what kind of translators are usually commissioned for such translations. The texts selected for analysis concentrated on the descriptions of karst caves. The empirical part of the thesis was based on contrastive analysis of selected texts, whereby special attention was given to terminology from the area of speleology, sentence structure, translating geographical names and orthographic mistakes. The results of the contrastive analysis have revealed that some inefficiencies can be shown in the majority of the analysed popular science and tourist texts from the area of speleology and only a small number of them have been translated by a qualified translator. It has also been proven that texts translated by a qualified translator contain less translation mistakes and are of better quality. The results are discussed in detail in the conclusion of the diploma paper.

Primož Hren, 2012, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: Nowadays the fine line between science and science fiction is unclear. What was science fiction few years ago is now a reality. Technology is advancing with incredible speed, and the possibilities are limitless. In my diploma thesis I will look into technologies that are found in the works of science fiction. I will describe the technologies as they are shown in the works I have chosen. One of my sources is the film I Robot. I will describe the advanced technologies, present their reality and with the help of literature and other sources estimate how long will they belong into domain of science fiction. My primary sources besides the film I Robot are the novels Foundation and Earth written by Isaac Asimov and Benford’s Across the Sea of Suns. The objective of my diploma thesis is to present the importance of technology for sci-fi literature and to show that the line between science and science fiction is unclear.
Keywords: science, science fiction, advanced technology, technology development, the line between science and science fiction

An efficient chain code with Huffman coding
Yong Kui Liu, Borut Žalik, 2005, original scientific article

Abstract: This paper presents a new chain code based on the eight-direction Freeman code. Each element in the chain is coded as a relative angle difference between it and the previous element. Statistical analysis showed that the probabilities of the Freeman codes differ importantly. Therefore, the Huffman coding was applied. The proposed chain code requires 1.97 bits/code, its chainlength is small, it allows representation of non-closed patterns and is rotationally independent.
Keywords: computer science, pattern recognition, chain code, Huffman code, object representations, chain code compression

Encyclopedia of complexity and systems science
dictionary, encyclopaedia, lexicon, manual, atlas, map

Abstract: Encyclopedia of Complexity and Systems Science provides an authoritative single source for understanding and applying the concepts of complexity theory together with the tools and measures for analyzing complex systems in all fields of science and engineering. The science and tools of complexity and systems science include theories of self-organization, complex systems, synergetics, dynamical systems, turbulence, catastrophes, instabilities, nonlinearity, stochastic processes, chaos, neural networks, cellular automata, adaptive systems, and genetic algorithms. Examples of near-term problems and major unknowns that can be approached through complexity and systems science include: The structure, history and future of the universe; the biological basis of consciousness; the integration of genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics as systems biology; human longevity limits; the limits of computing; sustainability of life on earth; predictability, dynamics and extent of earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, and other natural disasters; the dynamics of turbulent flows; lasers or fluids in physics, microprocessor design; macromolecular assembly in chemistry and biophysics; brain functions in cognitive neuroscience; climate change; ecosystem management; traffic management; and business cycles. All these seemingly quite different kinds of structure formation have a number of important features and underlying structures in common. These deep structural similarities can be exploited to transfer analytical methods and understanding from one field to another. This unique work will extend the influence of complexity and system science to a much wider audience than has been possible to date.
