This publication comprises chosen papers at the language, purposes, and environments of CafeOBJ, that is a state-of -the-art algebraic specification language. The authors are audio system at a workshop held in 1998 to commemorate a wide industrial/academic venture devoted to CafeOBJ. The venture concerned greater than forty humans from greater than 10 enterprises, of which 6 are commercial. The workshop attracted approximately 30 talks and greater than 70 attendees.

The papers within the ebook even if, are both seriously revised types offered on the workshop, to mirror contemporary developments or learn; or thoroughly new ones, written in particular for this e-book. during this regard, the e-book isn't really a traditional postpublication after a workshop. additionally, even though it is a compendium of papers which are concerning CafeOBJ, the booklet isn't a guide, reference, or educational of CafeOBJ. most likely the simplest description is that it's a choice of papers that examine how one can use, or to make it effortless to take advantage of, CafeOBJ. Reflecting the varied nature of the undertaking and its members (most of the authors are individuals to the project), the papers, prepare, supply a entire photo from this methodological perspective.

a few papers take care of a number of complex points of the language, akin to rewriting good judgment and behavioural good judgment. For rewriting good judgment, a number of major purposes have been pronounced. specifically, UML, now thought of de facto regular language for modelling platforms, is the topic of 1 paper. For behavioural common sense, new methodological guidance are provided. a few papers shed new gentle on a extra conventional paradigm within the language; order-sorted equational necessities. One paper, particularly, take care of how to affiliate CafeOBJ with object-oriented programming. the opposite papers take care of environments for writing and vertifying standards written in CafeOBJ. Underlying these papers are significant issues: consumer interfaces for manipulating standards, and systematic helps for proofs. the entire environments defined within the papers think and help dispensed computing, and de facto commonplace community applied sciences, similar to WWW and http, are integrated.

Web caching and its applications

The decade has visible great development in utilization of the realm broad internet. net caching is a know-how geared toward lowering the transmission of redundant community site visitors and bettering entry to the internet. the main proposal in net caching is to cache often- accessed content material in order that it can be used profitably later.

Quality of experience for multimedia : application to content delivery network architecture

According to a convergence of community applied sciences, the following new release community (NGN) is being deployed to hold prime quality video and voice information. actually, the convergence of community applied sciences has been pushed via the converging wishes of end-users. The perceived end-to-end caliber is among the major pursuits required through clients that has to be assured via the community operators and the web carrier companies, via producer apparatus.

Machine Learning Control – Taming Nonlinear Dynamics and Turbulence

This can be the 1st textbook on a mostly appropriate regulate technique for turbulence and different complicated nonlinear structures. The method of the booklet employs robust tools of computing device studying for optimum nonlinear keep watch over legislation. This laptop studying keep watch over (MLC) is inspired and specific in Chapters 1 and a couple of.

Bump contacts: Contacting pads which rise substantially above the surface level of the chip. The term is also applied to raised pads on the substrate which contact the flat land areas of the chip. Also called ball contacts, raised pads, pedestals. buried-channel charge-coupled device A charge-coupled device that confines the flow of charges to a channel lying beneath the surface of the semiconductor. (BCCD): buried layer: A heavily doped (N + 1) region directly under the N doped epitaxial collector region of transistors in a monolithic integrated circuit that is used to lower the series collector resistance.

Information is transferred along the buses from any one of many sources to any one of many destinations. The bus consists of several parallel wires, with separate wires serving various functions: addresses, data, synchronization, control, etc. bus arbitration: A technique used by master-type devices to request, grant, and acknowledge bus mastership. In its simplest form, it consists of: (a) asserting a bus mastership request; (b) receiving a grant that the bus is available at the end of the current cycle; and (c) acknowledging that mastership has been assumed.

C functions are called by value. Simple data objects passed to functions have their values passed rather than their addresses, making it impossible to accidentally overwrite the original. Since the value of a pointer may be passed, calls by reference are also provided. See also C compiler. cable connectors: These can be grouped into eight general classifications according cache memory: An extremely high-speed buffer memory device even faster than random access memory (RAM) and usually used to speed up the flow of data from RAM to the central processing unit (CPU).
