Memory architecture in multi-channel optically interconnected distributed shared memory multiprocessor systems
Multi-channel optical networks, although common in telecommunication applications, have only recently found application in computer systems. Multi-channel optical networks offer the potential for high performance interconnects ...
The design and implementation of a new network subsystem architecture for server systems
The explosive growth of the Internet, the widespread use of WWW-related applications, and the increased reliance on client-server architectures places interesting new demands on network servers. In particular, the operating ...
Robotic path planning and obstacle avoidance: A neural network approach
Robotic path planning and obstacle avoidance has been the subject of intensive research in recent years. Most solutions to this problem have been reached through the use of traditional Artificial Intelligence search ...
The use of scanning laser range finders for autonomous robotic navigation
An intelligent robotic system must possess the capabilities to sense the environment, perceive the environment, reason on the environment and then act based upon the conclusions of the reasoning process. Autonomous robotic ...
Validation of the Rice Parallel Processing Testbed using sorting algorithms (Rice University, Texas)
The Rice Parallel Processing Testbed (RPPT) is software package for simulating the execution of parallel computers. The RPPT employs execution driven simulation to perform simulation efficiently. In this thesis, the ...
Hypothesis selection strategies in a debugging task
Previous research on the human process of debugging indicates that it can be described as a process of testing hypotheses. It is noted that Hypothesis Testing Theory (HTT) as proposed by Levine (1966) can provide a guiding ...
