Antimagic labeling of regular graphs
Chang F., Liang Y., Pan Z., Zhu X. Journal of Graph Theory 82(4): 339-349, 2016. Type: Article
This paper consists of five interesting lemmas and a theorem on certain antimagic regular graphs. The well-written paper makes for absolutely delightful reading. It contains many newly introduced, well-explained, well-illustrated notations and not...
Principles of mobile communication (4th ed.)
Stüber G., Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2017. 717 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319556-14-7)
Mobile communication technologies have moved us a step closer to realizing the aim of ubiquitous access, anytime on the move. Cellular wireless systems have evolved over the past three decades from the analog-based first-generation standard to a d...
On partial state matching
Jančík P., Kofroň J. Formal Aspects of Computing 29(5): 777-803, 2017. Type: Article
The code of a procedural-language computer program includes variables that have values at any given point during execution of that program. The state at a point of execution of a program includes the collection of values of all variables at that p...
Automotive software architectures: an introduction
Staron M., Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2017. 237 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319586-09-0)
The automotive industry is experiencing the most rapid changes in its evolution toward semi- and fully autonomous vehicles. Software is driving the car, augmenting or replacing the human driver. Possibly this is the only book that covers the whole...
Parameter adaptation for generalized multiframe tasks: schedulability analysis, case study, and applications to self-suspending tasks
Peng B., Fisher N. Real-Time Systems 53(6): 957-986, 2017. Type: Article
Job (task) scheduling is one of the oldest problems in mathematics, operations research, and computer science research. Basically, given a set of tasks under various constraints (required execution time, deadline, precedence among tasks, and so on...
Data science: a comprehensive overview
Cao L. ACM Computing Surveys 50(3): 1-42, 2017. Type: Article, Reviews: (2 of 2)
I’ve been reviewing computing literature for almost two decades, have submitted over 100 reviews, and the survey format used by this paper is very common. However, at 42 pages, this is the largest survey I ever remember reading. Given how mu...
Optimum transistor sizing of CMOS logic circuits using logical effort theory and evolutionary algorithms
Singh K., Jain A., Mittal A., Yadav V., Singh A., Jain A., Gupta M. Integration, the VLSI Journal 60 25-38, 2018. Type: Article
This paper proposes a methodology for optimizing and evaluating chip designs by coupling the well-known logical effort (LE) theory with heuristic algorithms. Complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS)-level optimization can dramatically improv...
Non-regular unary language and parallel communicating Watson-Crick automata systems
Chatterjee K., Ray K. Theoretical Computer Science 705 113-117, 2018. Type: Article
Watson-Crick finite automata have been introduced as a possible model of DNA computation. They differ from their classical counterpart in that they are capable of working on double-stranded sequences. The strands are processed by two independent h...
Interpreting Lisp: programming and data structures (2nd ed.)
Knott G., Apress, New York, NY, 2017. 150 pp. Type: Book (978-1-484227-06-0)
Interpreting Lisp: programming and data structures
, Knott aims to meet several goals in a concise and direct manner: first, to provide a gentle but precise introduction to Lisp; second, to illustrate the flavor of Lisp programmin...
An introduction to machine learning (2nd ed.)
Kubat M., Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2017. 348 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319639-12-3)
In his introduction, the author states that “machine learning has come of age.” In many ways, if the scope and methods are those established in the book, it is true. But from the point of view of recent research and especially industri...
