Manetho: Fault tolerance in distributed systems using rollback-recovery and process replication
This dissertation presents a new protocol that allows rollback-recovery and process replication to co-exist in a distributed system. The protocol relies on a novel data structure called the antecedence graph, which tracks ...
A vision-based fuzzy logic and neural network approach to the control of hyper-redundant robot manipulators
Hyper-redundant robot manipulators possess a very large degree of kinematic redundancy and are capable of motion similar to that of snakes and elephant trunks. Because of the computational burden required to calculate the ...
Models of control and their implications for programming language design
This work uses denotational models to understand and improve the part of a programming language concerned with non-local control operators. These operators let the programmer identify and restore arbitrary control contexts ...
Efficient VLSI architectures for matrix factorizations
The SVD (Singular Value Decomposition) is a critical matrix factorization in many real-time computations from an application domain which includes signal processing and robotics; and complex data matrices are encountered ...
Efficient distributed shared memory based on multi-protocol release consistency
A distributed shared memory (DSM) system allows shared memory parallel programs to be executed on distributed memory multiprocessors. The challenge in building a DSM system is to achieve good performance over a wide range ...
