This paper presents a new and very rich class of (concurrent) programming languages, based on the notion of comput.ing with parhal information, and the concommitant notions of consistency and entailment. ’ In this framework, computation emerges from the interaction of concurrently executing agent ..."

On optimistic methods for concurrency control
 ACM Transactions on Database Systems
, 1981
"... Most current approaches to concurrency control in database systems rely on locking of data objects as a control mechanism. In this paper, two families of nonlocking concurrency controls are presented. The methods used are “optimistic ” in the sense that they rely mainly on transaction backup as a co ..."

Efficient similarity search in sequence databases
, 1994
"... We propose an indexing method for time sequences for processing similarity queries. We use the Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) to map time sequences to the frequency domain, the crucial observation being that, for most sequences of practical interest, only the first few frequencies are strong. Anot ..."

Shiftable Multiscale Transforms
, 1992
"... Orthogonal wavelet transforms have recently become a popular representation for multiscale signal and image analysis. One of the major drawbacks of these representations is their lack of translation invariance: the content of wavelet subbands is unstable under translations of the input signal. Wavel ..."

Automatic verification of finitestate concurrent systems using temporal logic specifications
 ACM Transactions on Programming Languages and Systems
, 1986
"... We give an efficient procedure for verifying that a finitestate concurrent system meets a specification expressed in a (propositional, branchingtime) temporal logic. Our algorithm has complexity linear in both the size of the specification and the size of the global state graph for the concurrent ..."

"... Reliability is even more important in objectoriented programming than elsewhere. This article shows how to reduce bugs by building software components on the basis of carefully designed contracts. 40 s objectoriented techniques steadily gain ground in the world of software development. users and p ..."

A Fast Quantum Mechanical Algorithm for Database Search
 ANNUAL ACM SYMPOSIUM ON THEORY OF COMPUTING
, 1996
"... Imagine a phone directory containing N names arranged in completely random order. In order to find someone's phone number with a probability of , any classical algorithm (whether deterministic or probabilistic)
will need to look at a minimum of names. Quantum mechanical systems can be in a supe ..."

Imagine a phone directory containing N names arranged in completely random order. In order to find someone's phone number with a probability of , any classical algorithm (whether deterministic or probabilistic)
will need to look at a minimum of names. Quantum mechanical systems can be in a superposition of states and simultaneously examine multiple names. By properly adjusting the phases of various operations, successful computations reinforce each other while others interfere randomly. As a result, the desired phone number can be obtained in only steps. The algorithm is within a small constant factor of the fastest possible quantum mechanical algorithm.
Text Chunking using TransformationBased Learning
, 1995
"... Eric Brill introduced transformationbased learning and showed that it can do partofspeech tagging with fairly high accuracy. The same method can be applied at a higher level of textual interpretation for locating chunks in the tagged text, including nonrecursive "baseNP" chunks. For ..."

Good ErrorCorrecting Codes based on Very Sparse Matrices

"... We study two families of errorcorrecting codes defined in terms of very sparse matrices. "MN" (MacKayNeal) codes are recently invented, and "Gallager codes" were first investigated in 1962, but appear to have been largely forgotten, in spite of their excellent properties. The ..."
