Swarm Intelligence is the study of "the emergent collective intelligence of groups of simple agents." Recent research has explored the important applications in the field of business, telecommunications, robotics and ...
Automated reasoning systems are powerful computer programs capable of solving
complex problems. They are characterized as computationally intensive having
high performance requirements. Very few reasoning systems have ...
In recent years P2P systems have gained tremendous popularity. Support of a transaction processing facility in P2P systems would provide databases at a low cost. Extending distributed database algorithms such as 2PC and ...
We present a novel algorithm called PG-means in this thesis. This algorithm is able to determine the number of clusters
in a classical Gaussian mixture model automatically. PG-means uses efficient statistical hypothesis ...
A key problem in software development is producing systems that are maintainable even as the concerns at play evolve. Aspect-oriented programming (AOP) seeks to foster maintainability by isolating the speciﬁcations of ...
GF(2) matrices are matrices of ones and zeros under modulo 2 arithmetic. Like the GF(2) polynomials used in error detection and correction, they have many potential uses in Electronic Design Automation (EDA). Non-singular ...
Conventional logic simplification can be couched in terms of singular GF(2) matrices. The advantage to doing this is that different matrices can be used to combine terms that are separated by a Hamming distance greater ...
This report gives the details an algorithm for determining whether two matrix groups are conjugate to one another. Each group is designated by a pair of matrices that generate the group. The algorithm is able to determine ...
Several research problems are discussed, including communication mechanisms and the interface between components and the glue logic used to tie them together. A technique for engineering new component-level applications ...
The characterization of the symmetries of boolean functions is important both in automatic layout synthesis, and in automatic verification of manually created layouts. It is possible to characterize the symmetries of an ...
Over the past few years I have been engaged in an intense study of GF(2) matrices, especially of dimensions 2, 3, 4, and 5. The software I used for this study was mostly a bunch of ad-hoc subroutines scattered over numerous ...
This is the software described in the technical report “The GF2Matrices Classes: A Programming Package for Mathematical Research.” Over the past few years I have been engaged in an intense study of GF(2) matrices, especially ...
This report contains some data about the General Linear Groups of GF(2) for dimensions 2, 3, 4, and 5. These groups are groups of matrices over GF(2), the integers modulo 2. The General Linear Group of order is the set ...
Metamorphic programming is an effective tool for creating efficient and elegant solutions to many programming problems, at least once you get over the shock of seeing code that violates many of the accepted rules of good ...
The objective of the algorithm described in this report is to optimally guess a hidden binary string based on queries to an oracle where the length of the string is known beforehand. A C++ version of the algorithm is given ...
A method for determining the symmetries of the inputs of a logic gate either from its truth table or from facts obtained by inspection of its circuit is presented. The symmetry rule of a gate with n inputs is defined in ...
In this report, I offer a technique for computing power sums that is: intuitive, well-motivated, generalizable to all k, and suitable for presentation to pre-calculus students.
The creation of a capstone course for an un-
dergraduate computer science curriculum mirrors traditional software design. Initially, a high-level goal is created. This is refined into lower-level
specifications by ...
The Functional Hardware Design Language is an expandable language that is designed to make it easy to specify gate-level. FHDL currently supports the specification of gates, high-level functional blocks, state machines, ...
The Functional Hardware Design Language can be used to create all parts of a digital design. It can be used to design logic-level circuits with ordinary gates, flip-flops and mid-sized functional blocks. It is hierarchical ...
