Automated defect prevention : best practices in software management by Dorota Huizinga( )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes an approach to software management based on establishing an infrastructure that serves as the foundation for the project. This infrastructure defines people roles, necessary technology, and interactions between people and technology. This infrastructure automates repetitive tasks, organizes project activities, tracks project status, and seamlessly collects project data to provide measures necessary for decision making. Most importantly, this infrastructure sustains and facilitates the improvement of human-defined processes. The methodology described in the book, which is called Automated Defect Prevention (ADP) stands out from the current software landscape as a result of two unique features: its comprehensive approach to defect prevention, and its far-reaching emphasis on automation. ADP is a practical and thorough guide to implementing and managing software projects and processes. It is a set of best practices for software management through process improvement, which is achieved by the gradual automation of repetitive tasks supported and sustained by this flexible and adaptable infrastructure, an infrastructure that essentially forms a software production line. In defining the technology infrastructure, ADP describes necessary features rather than specific tools, thus remaining vendor neutral. Only a basic subset of features that are essential for building an effective infrastructure has been selected. Many existing commercial and non-commercial tools support these, as well as more advanced features. Appendix E contains such a list
The next leap in productivity : what top managers really need to know about information technology by Adam Kolawa( Book )

A heterogeneous parallel programming capability : Final report by John Flower( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in Undetermined and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In creating a heterogeneous parallel processing capability we are really trying to approach three basic problems with current systems: (1) Supercomputer and parallel computer hardware architectures vary widely but need to support one or two fairly standard programming languages and programming models. A particularly important issue concerns the short life cycle of individual hardware designs; (2) Many algorithms require capabilities beyond the reach of single superconducters but could be approached by several machines working together; and (3) Performing a given task requires integration of a 'system' that may contain many components in addition to the super or parallel computer itself. Peripherals from many different manufacturers must be incorporated. (KR)

Semianalytical calculation of the O++ glueball mass in su(2) gauge theory by Adam Kolawa( )

1 edition published in 1986 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An attempt is made to derive and to solve the Schrodinger equation in the low energy region (vacuum, first excitation etc.) of the lattice. The complete orthonormal basis in the physical Hilbert space is constructed by classifying independent solutions of the Gauss' law. Loops of electric flux are chosen as elementary variables. The loop space Hamiltonian is derived, an ansatz is made for the low-energy wave functionals and the Schrodinger equation is solved in the (truncated) loop basis. The resulting physical picture for the Yang-Mills vacuum in the cross-over region is that of, still quite dilute, gas of fluctuating loops. The glueball in this formalism looks like a local inhomogeneity in the loop distribution. A definite candidate for the confining force emerges: the repulsive non-Abelian loop-loop interaction (rather weak but persistent) generates an effective external field ("external pressure") prohibiting unbounded loop size fluctuations. The negative sign (repulsion) is universal for all compact groups

An Automatic Parallelization Tool for Sequential Programs( )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this project we have been trying to improve a system called ASPAR- the automatic, symbolic parallelization system. This is a software tool designed to automate the process of converting sequential C and Fortran programs for execution on parallel computers. Our strategy, as developed in our own internal research is to modify sequential programs by the addition of calls to the Express runtime library. This is a set of library utilities specifically designed to allow parallel programs to operate in a manner independent of the underlying hardware. A set of abstractions is provided in which the physical machine topology can be hidden by a programming interface in which the machine interconnections can be assumed to match the topology of the data being manipulated. This ability is of central importance to our automated techniques: multi-dimensional arrays can be mapped logically onto a similarly multi- dimensional parallel processing network regardless of that machine physical interconnectivity. A second important advantage of Express is its portability. Express programs can be executed on a wide range of different parallel processing systems including nCUBE and INTEL hypercubes, multi-headed Crays, transputer arrays and networks of UNIX workstations. This allows us to test our methods on many different parallel architectures rather than concentrating on an single type of system. As a result our tools will be of wide relevance in the parallel processing community. The preliminary version of ASPAR was able to generate parallel C programs from a standard ANSIC program contained in a single source file
Automatic Test Data Generation Tool for Large- Scale Software Systems( )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The main Phase I goals were to: *Build a prototype of a TGS System which works with programs written in C. The prototype should have skeletons of the major algorithms which the tool will be using. *Assess if the approach which we proposed has a chance to become a real TGS tool, by running the prototype on chosen C programs. The goals of the Phase I were achieved. We produced a working prototype of the TgS tool. We implemented the major algorithms: *Symbolic execution, *Dynamic Data-Flow Analysis, *Function Minimization Methods, *Heuristics Random Input Generation
