Early Package Analysis: Considerations and Case Study
Found in: Computer
By David P. LaPotin, Toufie R. Mazzawy, Marlin L. White
Issue Date:April 1993
pp. 30-39
<p>Several issues associated with multichip module (MCM) system design are discussed. An early analysis tool for evaluating the tradeoffs between a design and packaging technology is presented. A case study of a possible design point suggested by com...
 
Asymptotic statistics of AR spectral estimators for processes containing mixed spectrum
Found in: Signal Processing Workshop on Statistical Signal and Array Processing, IEEE
By P. Sherman, L. White, J. Spanjaard, R. Bitmead
Issue Date:June 1996
pp. 48
We address the influence of point spectrum on the large sample statistics of the AR(n) spectral estimator for fixed n as well as for the case where n approaches infinity. For fixed n we obtain the distribution of this estimator. We also obtain approximate ...

Supporting Dynamic Space-sharing on Non-dedicated Clusters of Workstations
Found in: Distributed Computing Systems, International Conference on
By Abdur Chowdhury, Lisa D. Nicklas, Sanjeev K. Setia, Elizabeth L. White
Issue Date:May 1997
pp. 149
Clusters of workstations are increasingly being viewed as a cost-effective alternative to parallel supercomputers. However, resource management and scheduling on workstations clusters is complicated by the fact that the number of idle workstations availabl...
 
Verifying algorithms for autonomous aircraft by simulation - generalities and example
Found in: IEEE Aerospace Conference
By Allan L. White
Issue Date:March 2011
pp. 1-14
An open question in Air Traffic Management is what procedures can be validated by simulation where the simulation shows that the probability of undesirable events is below the required level at some confidence level. The problem is including enough realism...
 
Exploratory Visualization of Surgical Training Databases for Improving Skill Acquisition
Found in: IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications
By D. Schroeder,T. Kowalewski,L. White,J. Carlis,E. Santos,R. Sweet,T. S. Lendvay,T. Reihsen,D.F. Keefe
Issue Date:November 2012
pp. 71-81
A new visualization system analyzes multidimensional surgical performance databases of information collected via emerging surgical robot and simulator technologies. In particular, it has visualized force, position, rotation, and synchronized video data fro...
 
Correcting for unreliable regression integration testing
Found in: Software Maintenance, IEEE International Conference on
By K. Abdullah, J. Kimble, L. White
Issue Date:October 1995
pp. 232
H. Leung and L. White (1990) introduced the firewall concept for control flow in regression testing. In order to define this firewall, they assumed that unit testing and integration testing are both reliable. The paper continues to assume that unit testing...
 
Design of an optimizing, dynamically retargetable compiler for common Lisp
Found in: Proceedings of the 1986 ACM conference on LISP and functional programming (LFP '86)
By David B. Posner, Eric Benson, James L. McDonald, Jon L. White, Richard P. Gabriel, Rodney A. Brooks
Issue Date:August 1986
pp. 67-85
We consider how the data structures of an interpreter may be made available to the program it is running, and how the program may alter its interpreter's structures. We refer to these processes as reification and reflection. We show how these processes may...
     
Candidate subcircuits for functional module identification in logic circuits
Found in: Proceedings of the 10th Great Lakes Symposium on VLSI (GLSVLSI '00)
By Anthony S. Wojcik, Jennifer L. White, Moon-Jung Chung, Travis E. Doom
Issue Date:March 2000
pp. 34-38
Recovering functional information from existing hardware is a difficult problem in design automation. However, it is an important focus for designers attempting to redesign for expanded functionality or superior performance. Often, the only reliable inform...
     
Integrating the heterogeneous control properties of software modules
Found in: Proceedings of the fifth ACM SIGSOFT symposium on Software development environments (SDE 5)
By Elizabeth L. White, James M. Purtilo
Issue Date:December 1992
pp. 60-60
A concurrent software application, whether running on a single machine or distributed across multiple machines, is composed of tasks that interact (communicate and sychronize) in order to achieve some goal. Developing such concurrent programs so they coope...
     
Advanced CLOS and meta-object protocols (abstract)
Found in: Addendum to the proceedings on Object-oriented programming systems, languages, and applications (Addendum) (OOPSLA '92)
By Jon L. White
Issue Date:October 1992
pp. 99-107
Advanced CLOS and Meta-Object ProtocolsJon L. White, LucidOne of the important characteristics of CLOS is its dynamicflexibility to change descriptions, programs, and even data objectson the fly. A typical CLOS system is implemented by a set ofmeta-objects...
     
CLOS: integrating object-oriented and functional programming
Found in: Communications of the ACM
By Daniel G. Bobrow, Jon L. White, Richard P. Gabriel
Issue Date:January 1988
pp. 29-38
Lisp has a long history as a functional language,* where action is invoked by calling a procedure, and where procedural abstraction and encapsulation provide convenient modularity boundaries. A number of attempts have been made to graft object-oriented pro...
     
Reconfigurable, retargetable bignums: a case study in efficient, portable Lisp system building
Found in: Proceedings of the 1986 ACM conference on LISP and functional programming (LFP '86)
By Jon L. White
Issue Date:August 1986
pp. 174-191
We consider how the data structures of an interpreter may be made available to the program it is running, and how the program may alter its interpreter's structures. We refer to these processes as reification and reflection. We show how these processes may...
     
Constant time interpretation for shallow-bound variables in the presence of mixed special/local declarations
Found in: Proceedings of the 1982 ACM symposium on LISP and functional programming (LFP '82)
By Jon L White
Issue Date:August 1982
pp. 196-200
The semantics of variables in LISP are usually centered around the compiled-code environment; in many shallow-bound systems, local variables are implemented as stack-slots in the compiled environment, but are merely converted to special (or “fluid...
     
Address/memory management for a gigantic LISP environment or, GC considered harmful
Found in: Proceedings of the 1980 ACM conference on LISP and functional programming (LFP '80)
By Jon L. White
Issue Date:August 1980
pp. 119-127
The possibility of incredibly cheap, fantastically large media for storage gives rise to a realistic LISP memory management scheme under which GC may be postponed for days, or even indefinitely; the idea is encapsulated in the acronym “DDI”---&...
