comment Generalized chi distribution
@RossB. There are very few mentions of the Noncentral Chi Distribution on the Internet. I have a problem understanding the formulas in the Wikipedia article you've linked. The formula for the mean uses the "generalized Laguerre polynomial", but its n parameter is 1/2 (L^(k/2-1)_1/2), while the linked article only deals with integer values. Can you, please, tell me how to calculate the mean of the noncentral chi distribution?

AFAIK, the variables also need to be zero-centered to produce the Rayleigh distribution.

comment An “additive” cryptographic hash-function that allows calculating the hash of some data from the hashes of the parts of that data.
What do you think about matrix multiplication or some form of concatenation+hash (cannot think a proper function right now)?

Well, the $N^3$ (the size of the combination operator table) can be quite big for 1024-bit hashes. But I guess, some forms of rainbow tables could make brute-forcing faster. I wanted to use such hash for a version-control system to allow addressing parts of files.

Why would that allow it? Suppose $h(d) = md5(md5(d[0..n/2]),md5(d[n/2+1..n]))$ $hh(h1, h2) = md5(h1, h2)$. How would that compromise the security?
