Software Engineering for Self-Adaptive Systems II: by Rogério de Lemos, Holger Giese, Hausi A. Müller, Mary Shaw

By Rogério de Lemos, Holger Giese, Hausi A. Müller, Mary Shaw

Although the self-adaptability of platforms has been studied in quite a lot of disciplines, from biology to robotics, just recently has the software program engineering group famous its key position in permitting the improvement of self-adaptive platforms which are capable of adapt to inner faults, altering standards, and evolving environments. The 15 rigorously reviewed papers incorporated during this cutting-edge survey have been awarded on the overseas Seminar on "Software Engineering for Self-Adaptive Systems", held in Dagstuhl fortress, Germany, in October 2010. carrying on with the process the 1st e-book of the sequence on "Software Engineering for Self-Adaptive platforms" the gathering of papers during this moment quantity contains a study roadmap observed through 4 elaborating operating workforce papers. subsequent there are elements - with 3 papers every one - entitled "Requirements and regulations" and "Design Issues"; half 4 of the booklet comprises 4 papers overlaying a variety of "Applications".

The World of Programming Languages by Michael Marcotty

By Michael Marcotty

The earth, seen during the window of an aircraft, indicates a regularity and reptition of positive factors, for instance, hills, valleys, rivers, lakes, and forests. however, there's nice neighborhood version; Vermont doesn't appear like Utah. equally, if we upward thrust above the main points of some programming languages, we will be able to parent good points which are universal to many languages. this is often the programming language panorama; the most positive factors contain variables, varieties, keep watch over buildings, and input/output. back, there's neighborhood version; Pascal doesn't appear like easy. This paintings is a wide and accomplished dialogue of the crucial good points of the key programming languages. A learn of recommendations The textual content surveys the panorama of programming languages and its positive aspects. every one bankruptcy concentrates on a unmarried language notion. an easy version of the function, expressed as a mini-language, is gifted. this enables us to check a topic intensive and relative isolation. every one bankruptcy concludes with a dialogue of ways within which the idea that is integrated into a few recognized languages. this enables a pretty whole assurance of language issues.

Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing: 26th by Călin Cașcaval, Pablo Montesinos

By Călin Cașcaval, Pablo Montesinos

This booklet constitutes the completely refereed post-conference court cases of the twenty sixth overseas Workshop on Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing, LCPC 2013, held in Tokyo, Japan, in September 2012. The 20 revised complete papers and keynote papers awarded have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen from forty four submissions. the point of interest of the papers is on following subject matters: parallel programming types, compiler research suggestions, parallel facts constructions and parallel execution types, to GPGPU and different heterogeneous execution types, code new release for strength potency on cellular systems, and debugging and fault tolerance for parallel systems.

Optimizing HPC Applications with Intel® Cluster Tools by Alexander Supalov, Andrey Semin, Christopher Dahnken,

By Alexander Supalov, Andrey Semin, Christopher Dahnken, Michael Klemm

Optimizing HPC functions with Intel® Cluster instruments takes the reader on a travel of the fast-growing zone of excessive functionality computing and the optimization of hybrid courses. those courses regularly mix allotted reminiscence and shared reminiscence programming versions and use the Message Passing Interface (MPI) and OpenMP for multi-threading to accomplish the final word objective of excessive functionality at low energy intake on enterprise-class workstations and compute clusters.

The ebook makes a speciality of optimization for clusters including the Intel® Xeon processor, however the optimization methodologies additionally follow to the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor and heterogeneous clusters blending either architectures. along with the educational and reference content material, the authors deal with and refute many myths and misconceptions surrounding the subject. The textual content is augmented and enriched by way of descriptions of real-life situations.

Applications of Declarative Programming and Knowledge by Dietmar Seipel, Michael Hanus, Ulrich Geske, Oskar

By Dietmar Seipel, Michael Hanus, Ulrich Geske, Oskar Bartenstein

This quantity incorporates a collection of papers provided on the fifteenth foreign convention on purposes of Declarative Programming and data M- agement, INAP 2004, and the 18th Workshop on common sense Programming, WLP 2004, that have been held together in Potsdam, Germany, from March 4th to sixth, 2004. Declarative programming is a sophisticated paradigm for the modeling and fixing of advanced difficulties. This speci?cation procedure has turn into a growing number of appealing in recent times, for instance, within the domain names of databases, for the processing of normal language, for the modeling and processing of combinatorial difficulties, and for setting up knowledge-based structures for the net. The INAP meetings offer a discussion board for in depth discussions of appli- tions of vital applied sciences round common sense programming, constraint challenge fixing, and heavily comparable complicated software program. They comprehensively disguise the effect of programmable common sense solvers within the web society, its underlying te- nologies, and modern purposes in undefined, trade, executive, and social providers. The Workshops on common sense Programming are the once a year assembly of the Society for good judgment Programming (GLP e.V.). they create jointly researchers attracted to common sense programming, constraint programming, and similar parts like databases and arti?cial intelligence. prior workshops were held in Germany, A- tria, and Switzerland. Thetopicsoftheselectedpapersofthisyear’sjointconferenceconcentrateon 3 at present vital ?elds: wisdom administration and choice help, constraint programming and constraint fixing, and declarative programming and Web-based systems.

The Logic of Partial Information by Areski Nait Abdallah

By Areski Nait Abdallah

One has to be in a position to say perpetually - in­ stead of issues, instantly strains, and planes - tables, chairs and beer mugs. (David Hilbert) One carrier arithmetic has rendered the human race. It has placed good judgment again the place it belongs, at the topmost shelf subsequent to the dusty canister labelled "discarded nonsense. " (Eric T. Bell) This publication discusses reasoning with partial info. We examine the facts idea, the version concept and a few purposes of reasoning with par­ tial info. we've got as a target a basic conception for combining, in a principled method, good judgment formulae expressing partial details, and a logical device for selecting between them for program and implementation reasons. We additionally want to have a version conception for reasoning with partial infor­ mation that could be a basic generalization of the standard Tarskian semantics for classical common sense. We express the necessity to transcend the view of good judgment as a geometry of static truths, and to work out good judgment, either on the proof-theoretic and on the model-theoretic point, as a dynamics of strategies. We see the dynamics of good judgment procedures undergo with classical common sense, an analogous relation because the one latest among classical mechanics and Euclidean geometry.

MDA: Effektives Software-Engineering mit UML2 und Eclipse by Volker Gruhn

By Volker Gruhn

Dieses Buch liefert sowohl die theoretischen Grundlagen als auch das praktische Handwerkszeug zur Anwendung der Model-Driven-Architecture der OMG. Nach einer Definition und der Einordnung des Ansatzes in die heutige Welt des Software-Engineering sowie der Vorstellung der notwendigen Grundlagen entwickeln die Autoren anhand eines Fallbeispiels ein prototypisches MDA Framework und setzen so die zuvor erarbeiteten Erkenntnisse in die Praxis um. Besonderes Augenmerk wird dabei auf die Verwendung von Open-Source Technologien, insbesondere der Eclipse-Plattform und ihrer untergliederten Projekte gelegt. Eine Übersicht über verwandte Ansätze und sinnvolle Ergänzungen zum vorgestellten Vorgehen sowie eine abschließende Bewertung und ein vorsichtiger Ausblick in die Zukunft runden die Darstellung ab. Das Buch richtet sich damit sowohl an Entscheider, die ein fundiertes Basiswissen zur MDA erlangen wollen, als auch an Praktiker, die Antworten auf konkrete Fragestellungen zur Umsetzung benötigen.
