We make the suggestion that instead of implementing custom index structures and query evaluation algorithms, IR researchers should simply store document representations in a column-oriented relational database and write ranking models using SQL. For rapid prototyping, this is particularly advantageous since researchers can explore new ranking functions and features by simply issuing SQL queries, without needing to write imperative code. We demonstrate the feasibility of this approach by an implementation of conjunctive BM25 using MonetDB on a part of the ClueWeb12 collection. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
The paper deals with rapid prototyping of active magnetic bearings. Modern trends in aviation and possibilities of magnetic suspension using are characterized. Geometric analysis of active axial magnetic bearing are also described. Designing input parameters are defined and calculation results are presented. MES model and MES analysis of designed magnetic bearing are also shown. Active magnetic bearing control system with PD controller are presented as well as its time characteristics.

The ecosystem behind secure elements is complex and prevents average developers from creating secure element applications. In this paper we introduce concepts to overcome these issues. We develop two scenarios for open platforms emulating a secure element for the Android platform. Such an open emulator can be used for debugging and rapid prototyping of secure element applications. Moreover, by trading the secure element's security and trust for openness, such a platform can be used as a replacement for the secure element for long-term testing and for showcasing of applications.
