Towards a Rigorous Definition of Information System Survivability
 In DARPA Information Survivability Conference and Exposition (DISCEX
, 2003
"... The computer systems that provide the information underpinnings for critical infrastructure applications, both military and civilian, are essential to the operation of those applications. Failure of the information systems can cause a major loss of service, and so their dependability is a major conc ..."

are acceptable to users, under what circumstances each form is most useful, and the fraction of time such degraded service levels are acceptable. This concept is termed survivability. In this paper, we present the basis for a rigorous definition of survivability and an example of its
A rigorous definition of mass in special relativity
, 2008
"... Summary. — The axiomatic definition of mass in classical mechanics, outlined by Mach in the second half of 19th century and improved by several authors, is simplified and extended to the theory of special relativity. According to the extended definition presented here, the mass of a relativistic par ..."

Toward a Broader – But Still Rigorous – Definition of Leader Integrity: Commentary
"... [Excerpt] The impetus for this special issue of The Leadership Quarterly grew out of the desire of a small but enthusiastic group of leadership scholars who were interested in the concepts of integrity in general and behavioral integrity (the consistency between words and actions) in particular. Gue ..."

[Excerpt] The impetus for this special issue of The Leadership Quarterly grew out of the desire of a small but enthusiastic group of leadership scholars who were interested in the concepts of integrity in general and behavioral integrity (the consistency between words and actions) in particular. Guest Editor Tony Simons' (2002) theoretical article in Organization Science had sparked a great deal of interest in behavioral integrity, including the interest of a thendoctoral student at Binghamton University, Guest Editor Mike Palanski. Palanski was seeking advice for his dissertation, and Simons wished to build a cadre of scholars with an interest in leader behavioral integrity. A year or so later, Palanski had the “misfortune ” of presenting a paper on integrity as the final presenter in the final session on the final day of the 2006 Academy of Management conference in Atlanta. To his surprise, the room was packed, and it quickly became clear that others also
Farming: Towards a Rigorous Definition and Efficient Transputer Implementation
, 1992
"... The technique of the processor farm has become very widely used for parallelising applications, often being mentioned without reference to any source. The goal of this work has been to put together a complete and rigorous understanding of what the technique can be used for and what is needed in orde ..."

A rigorous definition of axial lines: ridges on isovist fields
, 2003
"... We suggest that ‘axial lines ’ defined by (Hillier and Hanson, 1984) as lines of uninterrupted movement within urban streetscapes or buildings, appear as ridges in isovist fields (Benedikt, 1979) as Rana first proposed (Rana, 2002). These are formed from the maximum diametric lengths of the individu ..."

We suggest that ‘axial lines ’ defined by (Hillier and Hanson, 1984) as lines of uninterrupted movement within urban streetscapes or buildings, appear as ridges in isovist fields (Benedikt, 1979) as Rana first proposed (Rana, 2002). These are formed from the maximum diametric lengths of the individual isovists, sometimes called viewsheds, that make up these fields (Batty and Rana, 2004). We present an image processing technique for the identification of lines from ridges, discuss current strengths and weaknesses of the method, and show how it can be implemented easily and effectively. Introduction: from local to global in urban morphology Axial lines are used in space syntax to simplify connections between spaces that make up an urban or architectural morphology. Usually they are defined manually by partitioning the space into the smallest number of largest convex subdivisions and defining these lines as those that link these spaces together.

A gentle tutorial on the EM algorithm and its application to parameter estimation for gaussian mixture and hidden markov models
, 1997
"... We describe the maximumlikelihood parameter estimation problem and how the Expectationform of the EM algorithm as it is often given in the literature. We then develop the EM parameter estimation procedure for two applications: 1) finding the parameters of a mixture of Gaussian densities, and 2) fi ..."

Framing: Toward clarification of a fractured paradigm
 Journal of Communication

"... In response to the proposition that communication lacks disciplinary status because of deficient core knowledge, I propose that we turn an ostensible weakness into a strength. We should identify our mission as bringing together insights and theories that would otherwise remain scattered in other ..."

in one location, communication can aspire to become a master discipline that synthesizes related theories and concepts and exposes them to the most rigorous, comprehensive statement and exploration. Reaching this goal would require a more selfconscious determination by communication scholars to plumb
