  • Patent number: 11869076
    Abstract: Techniques are described for reducing the number of transactions required to perform operations for services that support many-to-many relationships between entities. A one-to-many operation that involves an entity of a first type and multiple entities of a second type may be performed in two asynchronous phases: a one-to-intermediary phase and an intermediary-to-many phase. During the one-to-intermediary phase, a single transaction is performed between the entity of the first type and an intermediary. During the intermediary-to-many phase, a distinct transaction is performed between the intermediary and each of the entities of the second type that are involved in the one-to-many operation. The transaction performed for a particular entity of the second type during the intermediary-to-many phase may aggregate all changes that affect the particular entity, thereby significantly reducing the number of transactions performed by the system.

    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method, a sensor, a sensor unit and a bank-note processing machine for checking the completeness and/or authenticity of value documents. A value document comprises at least one machine-readable feature substance in at the least two locations. According to the method, the value document is excited at least locally at measuring locations. Furthermore, a feature intensity with respect to the machine-readable feature substance is captured location-resolved at several different locations of the value document. The location-based feature intensities are classified location-based with the help of a threshold value. Furthermore, location-based limits of a location distribution to be expected of the machine-readable feature substance are determined. Finally, a location-based distribution of the classified feature intensities is assessed.
