Circuit switched multicomputers and heuristic load placement by Dirk C Grunwald ( Book )
2 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this thesis, we examine two areas germane to ensemble, or multicomputer, systems: communication between individual computers and the placement of the individual components of a parallel program in the ensemble. These topics are related. Programs that execute on ensemble systems must be partitioned, and those components must communicate to be effective. We assume the raison d'etre of ensemble systems is performance; the methods used to solve problems, and the implementation of those methods on an ensemble system depend on the communication and computational performance of the ensemble system. However, such performance has a price; the programming model for ensemble systems differs greatly from the shared memory paradigm to which we have grown accustomed. Programming languages and tools that simplify the process of partitioning and placing individual parts of a computation are needed. In this thesis, we show that simple strategies used to share the resources of an ensemble system between individual program components, or processes, are very effective. We measure the performance of existing ensemble computer architectures and compare existing network architectures. We analyse several routing algorithms for circuit switched ensembles. These algorithms are simple enough to allow hardware implementation with switching speeds less than five hundred nanoseconds. We compare these networks to existing and proposed networks. We use the network model to examine process placement on an ensemble system. We characterize the observable behavior of processes; this is used to generate synthetic workloads for a simulation of process placement. We also capture the observational behavior of parallel prolog programs and two search tree programs. The conclusions from our study show that, with an appropriate network model, random process distribution is sufficient; in fact, process distribution using knowledge of the current system state is generally penalized due to stale information and information overflow
Calendrical calculations by Nachum Dershowitz ( Book )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Calendrical Calculations makes accurate calendrical algorithms readily available for computer use with LISP and Java code for all the algorithms included on CD, and updates available on the Web. It gives a description of fourteen calendars and how they relate to one another: the present civil calendar (Gregorian), the recent ISO commercial calendar, the old civil calendar (Julian), the Coptic and Ethiopic calendars, the Islamic (Moslem) calendar; the Baha'i, the Hebrew (Jewish) calendar, the Mayan calendars, the French Revolutionary calendar, the Chinese calendar, and both the old (mean) and new (true) Hindu (Indian) calendars
A probabilistic reasoning-based approach to machine learning by Krish Purswani ( Book )
3 editions published between 1986 and 1989 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This thesis describes a novel approach to machine learning, based on the principle of learning by reasoning. Current learning systems have significant limitations like brittleness, i.e. the deterioration of performance on a different domain or problem and lack of power required for handling real-world learning problems. The goal of my research was to develop an approach in which many of these limitations are overcome in a unified, coherent and general frame-work. This learning approach is based on techniques of reasoning, such as the discovery of the underlying principle and the recognition of the deeper basis of similarity which emulate human learning. In this thesis, the limitations of current systems are discussed, along with the arguments for using a different approach to learning. This thesis then presents a Reasoning-based Approach to machine learning the author developed, along with the details of a computer implementation. It also illustrates the approach on some learning problems not directly solvable by previous approaches
