The Marktoberdorf Summer School 1995 'Logic of Computation' was the 16th in a series of Advanced Study Institutes under the sponsorship of the NATO Scientific Affairs Division held in Marktoberdorf. Its scientific goal was to survey recent progress on the impact of logical methods in software development. The courses dealt with many different aspects of this interplay, where major progress has been made. Of particular importance were the following. ¿ The proofs-as-programs paradigm, which makes it possible to extract verified programs directly from proofs. Here a higher order logic or type theoretic setup of the underlying language has developed into a standard. ¿ Extensions of logic programming, e.g. by allowing more general formulas and/or higher order languages. ¿ Proof theoretic methods, which provide tools to deal with questions of feasibility of computations and also to develop a general mathematical understanding of complexity questions. ¿ Rewrite systems and unification, again in a higher order context. Closely related is the now well-established Grabner basis theory, which recently has found interesting applications. ¿ Category theoretic and more generally algebraic methods and techniques to analyze the semantics of programming languages. All these issues were covered by a team of leading researchers. Their courses were grouped under the following headings.
Despite its increasing importance, the verification andvalidation of the human-machine interface is perhaps themost overlooked aspect of system development. Although muchhas been written about the design and developmentprocess,very little organized information is available on how toverifyand validate highly complex and highly coupleddynamic systems. Inability toevaluate such systemsadequately may become the limiting factor in our ability toemploy systems that our technology and knowledge allow us todesign.This volume, based on a NATO Advanced Science Institute heldin 1992, is designed to provide guidance for theverification and validation of all highly complex andcoupled systems. Air traffic control isused an an exampleto ensure that the theory is described in terms that willallow its implementation, but the results can be applied toall complex and coupled systems.The volume presents the knowledge and theory ina formatthat will allow readers from a wide variety of backgroundsto apply it to the systems for which they are responsible.The emphasis is on domains where significant advances havebeen made in the methods of identifying potential problemsand in new testing methods and tools. Also emphasized aretechniques to identify the assumptions on which a system isbuilt and to spot their weaknesses.
This book comprehensively introduces data deduplication technologies for storage systems. It first presents the overview of data deduplication including its theoretical basis, basic workflow, application scenarios and its key technologies, and then the book focuses on each key technology of the deduplication to provide an insight into the evolution of the technology over the years including chunking algorithms, indexing schemes, fragmentation reduced schemes, rewriting algorithm and security solution. In particular, the state-of-the-art solutions and the newly proposed solutions are both elaborated. At the end of the book, the author discusses the fundamental trade-offs in each of deduplication design choices and propose an open-source deduplication prototype. The book with its fundamental theories and complete survey can guide the beginners, students and practitioners working on data deduplication in storage system. It also provides a compact reference in the perspective of key data deduplication technologies for those researchers in developing high performance storage solutions.
The IoT topology defines the way various components communicate with each other within a network. Topologies can vary greatly in terms of security, power consumption, cost, and complexity. Optimizing the IoT topology for different applications and requirements can help to boost the network's performance and save costs. More importantly, optimizing the topology robustness can ensure security and prevent network failure at the foundation level. In this context, this book examines the optimization schemes for topology robustness in the IoT, helping readers to construct a robustness optimization framework, from self-organizing to intelligent networking.The book provides the relevant theoretical framework and the latest empirical research on robustness optimization of IoT topology. Starting with the self-organization of networks, it gradually moves to genetic evolution. It also discusses the application of neural networks and reinforcement learning to endow the node with self-learning ability to allow intelligent networking.This book is intended for students, practitioners, industry professionals, and researchers who are eager to comprehend the vulnerabilities of IoT topology. It helps them to master the research framework for IoT topology robustness optimization and to build more efficient and reliable IoT topologies in their industry.
