 Olivar , 2011, Abstract: the north-american trend called "new journalism" born in the 60's, was a revolution for the usa traditional journalism, for its use of literary elements with other ones that belong to the journalistic research. hunter s. thompson, author of fear and loathing in las vegas (1971), with his gonzo style, was going to shed new light on the new journalism proposals, improving the immersión process using drugs until he gets implied personally in his reports and taking all his narrative influences from the 50's beat movement. almost 35 years later, in el dorado, juan-cantavella makes a paralellism between las vegas and the holiday city in the mediterranean coast, marina d'or and he develops in this space a novel, where his alter ego, the punk journalist escargot, plays the lead. novel, journalism, gonzo, fiction, story, punk, essay, report, "aportaje", discursive fragmentation, dialogs, internal monologues, descriptions, memorandums, telegrams, emails, press releases, radio news, songs, slogans, all fits to reenact genres, to re-read journalistic and literary traditions and to build something new. this work analyses this process, that goes from the gonzo journalism of fear and loathing in las vegas to the current spanish narrative of el dorado. it tries to distinguish the literary resources that the gonzo journalist uses to build his reports and the journalistic tools that nourish juan-cantavella's "punk narrative". a particular example of literary-journalistic symbiosis.
 Mathematics , 2009, Abstract: Let $f(X,Y) \in \ZZ[X,Y]$ be an irreducible polynomial over $\QQ$. We give a Las Vegas absolute irreducibility test based on a property of the Newton polytope of $f$, or more precisely, of $f$ modulo some prime integer $p$. The same idea of choosing a $p$ satisfying some prescribed properties together with $LLL$ is used to provide a new strategy for absolute factorization of $f(X,Y)$. We present our approach in the bivariate case but the techniques extend to the multivariate case. Maple computations show that it is efficient and promising as we are able to factorize some polynomials of degree up to 400.
 Joshua Wang Computer Science , 2013, Abstract: Using hashing techniques, this paper develops a family of space-efficient Las Vegas randomized algorithms for $k$-SUM problems. This family includes an algorithm that can solve 3-SUM in $O(n^2)$ time and $O(\sqrt{n})$ space. It also establishes a new time-space upper bound for SUBSET-SUM, which can be solved by a Las Vegas algorithm in $O^*(2^{(1-\sqrt{\8/9\beta})n})$ time and $O^*(2^{\beta n})$ space, for any $\beta \in [0, \9/32]$.
 Brian Philip Corr Mathematics , 2015, Abstract: In constructive recognition of a representation of a Classical group $G$, much attention has been paid to the natural representation as well as to generic (Black Box) algorithms that treat all representations uniformly. There are theoretical and practical improvements to be made by giving special treatment to certain non-natural representations that arise frequently. In this paper we present and analyse a Las Vegas algorithm for rewriting the Symmetric Square representation.
 Quantitative Finance , 2007, DOI: 10.1016/j.physa.2007.08.059 Abstract: We analyze 27 house price indexes of Las Vegas from Jun. 1983 to Mar. 2005, corresponding to 27 different zip codes. These analyses confirm the existence of a real-estate bubble, defined as a price acceleration faster than exponential, which is found however to be confined to a rather limited time interval in the recent past from approximately 2003 to mid-2004 and has progressively transformed into a more normal growth rate comparable to pre-bubble levels in 2005. There has been no bubble till 2002 except for a medium-sized surge in 1990. In addition, we have identified a strong yearly periodicity which provides a good potential for fine-tuned prediction from month to month. A monthly monitoring using a model that we have developed could confirm, by testing the intra-year structure, if indeed the market has returned to normal'' or if more turbulence is expected ahead. We predict the evolution of the indexes one year ahead, which is validated with new data up to Sep. 2006. The present analysis demonstrates the existence of very significant variations at the local scale, in the sense that the bubble in Las Vegas seems to have preceded the more global USA bubble and has ended approximately two years earlier (mid 2004 for Las Vegas compared with mid-2006 for the whole of the USA).
