8 Towards a language independent object systemThis thesis proposes a solution to the problem of mixed language programming in an object-oriented environment that centers around an object specification that can describe the features of objects in a language independent fashion. Also, a stub generator which reads this specification and creates me...object-oriented programming; mixed language programming; programming; computers; object-oriented environment; stub generator1991-06
9 Image Recognition Using Generalized CorrelationThis paper investigates the use of generalized cross-correlation in pattern matching when the objects may be of one or two dimensions. Generalized correlation can be used to determine the amount of dilatation and rotation between a given template and an object, in addition to determining the relativ...1977-08
10 A User Interface Model and Tools for Geometric DesignPoor user interfaces discourage potential users from effectively utilizing the design capabilities of geometric modeling systems. Because of the complex nature of the underlying representations in such systems, a well structured user interface model, as well as useful and intuitive design tools, are...user interface; computer systems; computer-aided design
11 Synthesis, Verification and Optimization of Systolic ArraysSystolic arrays are a class of parallel architectures consisting of regular interconnections of a very large number of simple processors, each one operating on a small part of the problem. They are typically designed to be used as back-end. special-purpose devices for computation-intensive architecture; systolic array; VLSI1986-12
12 Design of a Self-Timed, Pipelined, Floating Point Multiplier in Gallium ArsenideThis thesis presents the design of a self-timed, floating point multiplier in Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) technology.

18 Design and implementation of a portable shared memory serverProcesses communicate between one another using mechanisms like message passing, files, shared memory, etc. In current systems, shared memory is not commonly used even though it has many advantages over message passing and file sharing such as simplicity, efficiency, and lower space overhead. This t...memory management; portable shared memory server1994-12
19 The Many Faces of IntrospectionIn psychology, introspection is a common term meaning an examination of one's own thought process and sensory experience. Similarly, introspection in computer systems enables a computer to examine its own computational behavior. A computer that ""understands"" its own behavior, an introspective comp...1992-04
