Cheng S., Qin Q., Chen J., Shi Y. Artificial Intelligence Review 46(4): 445-458, 2016. Type: Article
This paper is a review of research in the area of brain storm optimization (BSO) algorithms that examines the “more effective algorithms and search strategies.” This type of technique has application in the real world, for example, to ...
Vehicular cyber physical systems: adaptive connectivity and security
Rawat D., Bajracharya C., Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2016. 75 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319444-93-2)
The title of this slim book indicates that it is about the connectivity and security of vehicular cyber-physical systems. However, it only covers a very restricted range of these topics. Its five chapters are based on papers by the first author. T...
Usage, costs, and benefits of continuous integration in open-source projects
Hilton M., Tunnell T., Huang K., Marinov D., Dig D. ASE 2016 (Proceedings of the 31st IEEE/ACM International Conference on Automated Software Engineering, Singapore, Sep 3-7, 2016) 426-437, 2016. Type: Proceedings
A profound revolution has been taking place throughout software engineering, led again by the software industry. Continuous integration (CI) was first discussed in 1991, but until recently only a handful of research papers on the subject were publ...
A mathematical theory of resources
Coecke B., Fritz T., Spekkens R. Information and Computation 25059-86, 2016. Type: Article
Many of the physical sciences ultimately deal with resources. The important questions are: Can a given resource be converted into another? And if so, how? Examples abound:...
Foundations for using linear temporal logic in Event-B refinement
Hoang T., Schneider S., Treharne H., Williams D. Formal Aspects of Computing 28(6): 909-935, 2016. Type: Article
Event-B is a formal method for system-level modeling and analysis. In the last decade, Event-B refinement has generated a lot of interest as a formalism for developing highly reliable software. The Event-B language, along with tools such as Rodin ...
