A multilingual high-level language computer architecture by Phillip Lee Crews( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this dissertation is to describe the design considerations for a computer architecture capable of directly executing multiple high order languages (HOL) thereby eleiminating the need to translate source input into a lower level form acceptable to conventional von Neumann computers for execution. This is an extension beyond high order language machines that directly execute a single high order language, and consequently are concerned with conventional language translation when other high order languages are to be executed on the single high order language machine. The advantages of completely eliminating any type of translation are numerous and strongly support the former approach to language execution. Among these advantages are: (1) programmer productivity is enhanced; (2) there is no dispersion of semantics between a different external and internal language representation; (3) the overhead time associated with the compilation and assembly of programs is eliminated; (4) there is a reduction on the amount of conventional software; and, (5) systems programs are more descriptive

Loop-free adaptive routing procedures for distributed computer-communication networks by Charles Ernest Neblock( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two algorithms have been developed which provide a loop-free property for adaptive routing procedures utilizing periodic update techniques in distributed control computer-communication networks. The development was preceded by an investigation of network design principles and the characteristics of current adaptive routing algorithms. The research was accomplished in three parts. The techniques of queueing theory were utilized to develop a measure of expected system delay that could be used to compare the performance of routing algorithms and provide validation for a network simulation model. The simulation model was then developed and shown to provide surprisingly good results when compared with the theoretic predictions. Next, two primitive routing algorithms were proposed. Simulation program evaluations indicated that the performance of both algorithms compared favorably with the periodic update algorithm in terms of system delay, and that both were free from loop formation. Both algorithms, however, were shown to possess the undesirable property of occasionally losing messages through trapping
A multi-dimensional activation and shielding analysis code package for a workstation by Donald Edwin Palmrose( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An integrated activation and radiation shielding code package was developed to operate on a workstation based on two major codes that perform the multi-dimensional transport calculation (TWODANT) and the activation calculation (REAC*2). Several coupling codes were created to link these two codes together. An additional code was written to read the photon transport results from TWODANT and to convert the spatial fluxes into dose rates. The various strategies that were implemented in order to perform the calculations within the memory limitations of a workstation are presented. A proposed fusion ignition device, known as IGNITEX, was used to test the code package and to show its usefulness. The results of the activation and shielding analyses for IGNITEX are presented along with a discussion of the code package's performance characteristics

A real-time executive generator by Masahiro Ōta( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Efficiency and responsiveness in operation and ease in programming is a conflict in designing a real-time executive. Manufacturer-provided general purpose executives are usually written with a high degree of generality so that they can be used over a wide range of different systems. This high versatility introduces considerable inefficiencies in executive operations. They normally require more core memory and processing time than a tightly-written, tailor-made program. On the other hand, the difficulties introduced by developing one's own executive, and the time and cost required to write and debug programs, are usually considerable. The purpose of this research was to develop a real-time executive generator, such as EXECGEN, to solve the difficulty in designing efficient executives. Various versions of the basic modules common to real-time executive programs were developed in sufficient detail. Also, the tables used to drive an executive to perform as a real-time executive were explicitly detailed. A users' specification language was developed. The generating phase was not specified in great detail. However, from the language and the presentation of the EXECGEN, a programmer could write an implementation of it. The effectiveness of EXECGEN was verified by generating an executive for a hypothetical airborne fire-control computer. The requirements for an executive were summarized in the form of the required users' specification. EXECGEN system logic was stimulated manually to produce a specific real-time executive. The "generated" executive was validated to assure the readiness for an intended mission by GPSS simulation for a typical job stream. The result of this research project was the development of an effective way to produce a real-time executive. The generated executive should be almost as efficient as one specifically coded for a given situation

A Methodology for the Analysis of Programmer Productivity and Effort Estimation within the Framework of Software Conversion by John Diego Fernandez( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Software conversion is becoming increasingly significant as the inventory of programs increases and as the life cycle of many applications becomes longer. Although some work has been done in the area of software conversion, it has received little research attention since it has only recently become a more frequent occurrence. This research considered two aspects of software conversion and developed a methodology for the statistical analysis of conversion sample data from the ongoing U.S. Air Force Base Level Data Automation Program (officially given the short title Phase IV). The two areas specifically addressed by this research were programmer productivity and effort estimation. Programmer attributes and program characteristics were studied in relation to programmer productivity in software conversion. Models for explaining productivity were constructed and the impact of organization was also considered. Existing applicable models for software conversion effort estimation were examined and their accuracy was evaluated. Environment specific regression models for effort estimation were also constructed. Several statistical and summarizing techniques were considered for the analysis of the conversion sample data. As various aspects of the data were studied, selected statistical techniques emerged as more appropriate. These provided the basis for the methodology formulated and used throughout the data analysis. The Air Force data was utilized in a case study of the application of the methodology. Unique features of the data which entered the analysis included government programmers, less than half being college graduates, working in different organizations and converting COBOL-68 programs to COBOL-74 with the maximum program length being 5000 lines. The analysis of conversion programmer productivity revealed that experience, lines of code, a programmer's knowledge of the program, organization, and other factors and attributes impacted productivity. In addition, the Hahn and Stone effort estimation model exhibited the best performance in estimating system level effort while the Federal Conversion Support Center model had the lowest accuracy. Other effort models were also studied
