Supersoft X-ray sources : proceedings of the international workshop held in Garching, Germany, 28 February-1 March 1996 by Jochen Greiner( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and German and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Observations with X-ray satellite ROSAT over the past 5 years have established supersoft X-ray sources as a new class of objects in our Galaxy and beyond. Optical follow-up observations have revealed the binary nature of several of them. Recent population synthesis calculations have shown that the number of such binaries is expected to be considerably larger than those of the common low- and high-mass X-ray binaries. This book provides the first comprehensive overview of the many recent observational discoveries and theoretical investigations. It describes relations between supersoft sources and other areas in astrophysics. This volume also comprises a complete catalog of presently known supersoft sources including a comprehensive bibliography of observational results
Flares and flashes : proceedings of IAU Colloquium no. 151, held in Sonneberg, Germany, 5-9 December 1994 by International Astronomical Union( Book )

17 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributions to the 151st IAU Colloquium cover different fields of recent research, observational as well as theoretical, on solar and stellar flares ranging from radio up to gamma-ray wavelengths. A special chapter is devoted to all-sky monitoring and, finally, the excerpts of a round-table discussion present the reader with an interesting outlook on future developments. This book is therefore a unique source for those who want to get a complete picture of this fascinating part of modern astrophysics

Microquasars : proceedings of the Third Microquasar Workshop : Granada Workshop on Galactic Relativistic Jet Sources, Granada, Spain, 11-13 September 2000 by A. J Castro-Tirado( Book )

9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of microquasars, sources in our Galaxy displaying powerful relativistic jets, is a rapidly advancing field in astrophysics. New instrumentation on the ground (MERLIN, SCUBA, VLA, and VLT) and aboard satellites (ASCA, BSAX, ISO, IXAE and RXTE) has provided important results, and much more is expected to come from Chandra and XMM-Newton. In the future, powerful instrumentation will come online in sub-mm (ALMA) and gamma rays (INTEGRAL), extending our coverage to important regions for the study of microquasars. <br/> Energy transport via relativistic jets is one of the most important physical mechanisms taking place in compact objects, either in binary systems or in the nuclei of active galaxies. Large efforts have been devoted to proper understanding of the disk-jet connection, and even the effects of rotation or magnetic fields. Several important advances have been made recently, both from the point of view of the theoretical treatment of jets and the different new observational tests. All of them are reflected in this book, the first one devoted to the study of these enigmatic objects

Programming with inductive and co-inductive types by Jochen Greiner( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "We look at programming with inductive and co-inductive datatypes, which are inspired theoretically by initial algebras and final co-algebras, respectively. A predicative calculus which incorporates these datatypes as primitive constructs is presented. This calculus allows reduction sequences which are significantly more efficient for two dual classes of common programs than do previous calculi using similar primitives. Several techniques for programming in this calculus are illustrated with numerous examples. A short survey of related work is also included."

A parallel complexity model for functional languages by Guy E Blelloch( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "A complexity model based on the [lambda]-calculus with an appropriate operational semantics in [sic] presented and related to various parallel machine models, including the PRAM and hypercube models. The model is used to study parallel algorithms in the context of 'sequential' functional languages, and to relate these results to algorithms designed directly for parallel machine models. For example, the paper shows that equally good upper bounds can be achieved for merging two sorted sequences in the pure [lambda]-calculus with some arithmetic constants as in the EREW PRAM, when they are both mapped onto a more realistic machine such as a hypercube or butterfly network. In particular for n keys and p processors, they both result in an O(n/p + log² p) time algorithm. These results argue that it is possible to get good parallelism in functional languages without adding explicitly parallel constructs. In fact, the lack of random access seems to be a bigger problem than the lack of parallelism."

Standard ML weak polymorphism can be sound by Jochen Greiner( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unfortunately, weak polymorphism has been presented only as part of the implementation of the SML/NJ compiler, not as a formal type system. As a result, it is not well understood, as its more subtle points are not well known. Furthermore, while versions of the implementation have repeatedly been shown unsound, the concept has not been proven sound or unsound. We present several formal systems of weak polymorphism, show their connecton to the SML/NJ implementation, and show the soundness of most of these systems."
A comparison of data-parallel algorithms for connected components by Jochen Greiner( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "This paper presents a pragmatic comparison of three parallel algorithms for finding connected components, together with optimizations on these algorithms. Those being compared are two similar algorithms by Awerbuch and Shiloach [2] and by Shiloach and Vishkin [19] and a randomized contraction algorithm by Blelloch [7], based on algorithms by Reif [18] and Phillips [17]. Major improvements are given for the first two which significantly reduces the super-linear component of their work complexity. An improvement is also given for randomized algorithm, and this algorithm is shown to be the fastest of those tested. These comparisons are presented with NESL data-parallel code as executed on a Connection Machine 2."
