High-Level Protocols( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

High-level protocols (HLP's) are the high-level languages of distributed systems. In a resource-sharing network, HLP's link processes working on a common application. The design of an HLP is decomposed into three components: language, coding, and transport. The language expresses the commands and data passed between processes. It is designed to provide standardization and device independence, in order to use a small number of HLP's to address a range of applications implemented on a variety of computer systems. Coding converts the language into digital messages. Finally, a transport system is used to transmit the messages from one process to another-experience with HLP's has shown that different HLP's require different transport behaviors. This paper describes some examples of HLP's (ARPA network voice and graphics protocols), and argues that modern techniques for expressing structure and control in programming languages should be applied to analogous problems in communication among application processes in a network.

Using program transformations to derive line-drawing algorithms by Robert F Sproull( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A wide variety of line-drawing algorithms can be derived by applying program transformations to a simple, obviously correct algorithm. The transformations increase the algorithm's performance and eliminate the need for floating-point computations. Two familiar algorithms are derived in this way: Bresenham's algorithm and the digital differential analyzer (DDA). The transformations are then used to derive several highly parallel variants of Bresenham's algorithm, designed for use on displays that can generate more than one pixel at a time. The treatment shows a complete, extended example of the practical use of program transformations. Moreover, the transformations derive Bresenham's algorithm without recourse to complex geometric arguments. (Author)

Translating concurrent communicating programs into delay-insensitive circuits by Erik Brunvand( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: "Programs written in a subset of Occam are automatically translated into delay-insensitive circuits using syntax-directed techniques. The resulting circuits are improved using semantics-preserving circuit-to-circuit transformations. Since each step of the translation process can be proven correct, the resulting circuit behavior is a faithful copy of the original program behavior. A compiler has been constructed that automatically performs the translation and transformation."
