New approaches to the analysis and design of Reed-Solomon related codes Citation El-Khamy, Mostafa New approaches to the analysis and design of Reed-Solomon related codes. This breakthrough can render the current state-of-the-art Reed-Solomon decoders obsolete. Much of the importance of Reed-Solomon codes stems from their ubiquity and utility. This thesis takes a few steps toward a deeper understanding of Reed-Solomon codes as well as toward the design of efficient algorithms for decoding them.

According to the — Student Body Handbook, however, the Doyle Owl may have originated as an ornament atop the Doyle dorm, from which it was removed as a "dorm memento". Another dorm kidnapped nine residents of Doyle, offering to exchange the captives for the Owl.
This did not work and the "hostages" escaped. The same rival dorm staged a two-hour siege on Doyle, featuring water, mud, and ammonia bombs. Doyle countered by using a firehose but the tradition was born. Whenever it is stolen, the stealers must flaunt it at a "showing," where elaborate measures are taken to display the Owl while reducing the odds of it being re-stolen by a new group.
Often the resulting fracas involves the majority of the student body. Other "showings" have included encasing it in ice, covering it in Vaseline while hanging it off the Blue Bridgesetting it on fire using baking oil and throwing it out the back of a speeding car.
Temporary possessors of the Owl also traditionally take pictures of themselves next to the Owl, to prove their possession, and pictures of the Owl in strange places and with unusual people have become de rigueur; it has been seen in the US at Disneylandin Seattlein San Franciscoand in Lincoln, Nebraska.
