Worst-case Circuit Analysis
... Worst-case circuit analysis (WCCA or WCA) is a cost-effective means of screening a design to ensure with a high degree of confidence that potential ... which meets the system performance specification over design life under worst-case conditions and tolerances (initial, aging, radiation, temperature, etc.) ...
Self-organizing List - Analysis of Running Times For Access/ Search in A List - Worst Case
... In the worst case, the element to be located is at the very end of the list be it a normal list or a self-organized one and thus n comparisons must be made to reach it ... Therefore the worst case running time of a linear search on the list is O(n) independent of the type of list used ... simply reduces the probability of the worst case occurring but does not eliminate it completely ...

Lattice-based Cryptography - Security Issues - Worst-case Hardness
... Worst-case hardness of lattice problems means that breaking the cryptographic construction (even with some small non-negligible probability) is provably at least as hard as solving several lattice ... In most cases, the underlying problem is that of approximating lattice problems such as SVP to within polynomial factors, which is conjectured to be a hard problem ... The importance of the worst-case security guarantee is twofold ...

Famous quotes containing the words case and/or worst:

    There are a great many of these accusers, and they have been accusing me now for a great many years, and what is more, they approached you at the most impressionable age, when some of you were children or adolescents; and literally won their case by default, because there was no one to defend me.
    Socrates (469–399 B.C.)

    When I go to hell, I mean to carry a bribe: for look you, good gifts evermore make way for the worst persons.
    John Webster (1580–1625)
