How hollow
Are tears upon a sleeve
In gemlets;
For mine cannot be dammed
As a surging flood!

Who's sired of such a noble sire
And dammed by every one!

It wanders at its will;
Nor dam nor pond is left to tell
Where once was Birchbrook mill.

Nor needs from thence imagine hurt,

'n Wierook na die see toe waai,
En aan die dam, waaroor die voëls
So vrolik in die nessies swaai;

At the foot of the sloping hill,
The dam that impeded its progress,
The toy-wheel of water-mill.

In science:
The same problem expressed with additive group notation has been called the hidden shift problem, and instances of this problem were solved eﬃciently by van Dam, Hallgren and Ip .
Quantum Algorithms
Van Dam and Seroussi give an eﬃcient quantum algorithm for estimating Gauss sums.
Quantum Algorithms
Childs, W. van Dam, “Quantum algorithm for a generalized hidden shift problem”, Proceedings of the Eighteenth Annual ACM-SIAM Symposium on Discrete Algorithms (SODA), 1225–1232, (2007).
Quantum Algorithms
The ﬁrst model of QCA researched in depth was that introduced by Watrous (5), whose ideas where further explored by van Dam (6), D¨urr, LˆeThanh, and Santha (7; 8), and Arrighi (25). A Watrous-QCA is deﬁned over an inﬁnite 1-dimensional lattice, a ﬁnite set of states including a quiescent state.
Quantum Cellular Automata
Watrous’ model was further developed by van Dam (6), who deﬁnes a QCA as an assignment of a product vector to every basis state in the computational basis.
Quantum Cellular Automata
Van Dam showed that the ﬁnite version is also computationally universal. Eﬃcient algorithms to decide whether a given 1-dimensional QCA is unitary was presented by D¨urr, LeTanh, and Santha (7; 8).
Quantum Cellular Automata
The QCA deﬁned by Van Dam is a ﬁnite version of a Watrous QCA and is computationally universal as well (6).
Quantum Cellular Automata
As a precursor to the efﬁcient quantum algorithm, it was shown that the quantum query complexity is O(1), while the classical query complexity is W(log p) (van Dam, 2002).

Notably, van Dam showed that the paradigmatic example of such a generalized theory, characterized by maximally non-local correlations known as PopescuRohrlich (PR) boxes , appears very unlikely to exist since it allows for a dramatic increase of communication power compared to QM.
Couplers for Non-Locality Swapping
When the mass is bigger than a critical fraction of the curvature, the van Dam-Veltman -Zakharov (vDVZ) discontinuity [10, 11] says that the predictions drastically disagree with general relativity.

Optimal control of a large dam, taking into account the water costs [New Edition]
A large dam is deﬁned by the parameters Llower and Lupper, which are, respectively, the lower and upper levels of the dam.
Optimal control of a large dam, taking into account the water costs [New Edition]
If the current level is between these bounds, the dam is assumed to be in a normal state.
