Here's a user-friendly list of words and phrases we meet soon after a computer comes to live with us. New users may not appreciate being called dummies or idiots, nor do they need to buy a big dictionary of thousands of bits of computer jargon intended for "geeks". This is as un-geeky as it gets with just 200 entries.Trust me, that's enough to get you going.
This definitive new volume brings together scientists from government, industry, and the academic worlds to explore ways in which to capitalize on resources for new ventures into the next generation of supercomputers. The wealth of information on state-of-the-art scientific developments contained in this single volume makes Supercomputers an invaluable resource for management scholars and government policymakers interested in high technology companies and strategic planning.
In this monograph we introduce and examine four new temporal logic formalisms that can be used as specification languages for the automated verification of the reliability of hardware and software designs with respect to a desired behavior. The work is organized in two parts. In the first part two logics for computations, the graded computation tree logic and the computation tree logic with minimal model quantifiers are discussed. These have proved to be useful in describing correct executions of monolithic closed systems. The second part focuses on logics for strategies, strategy logic and memoryful alternating-time temporal logic, which have been successfully applied to formalize several properties of interactive plays in multi-entities systems modeled as multi-agent games.
This book offers innovative insights on South-South human mobility. It features a collection of papers that highlight often overlooked mobility patterns among and within regions in the global South as well as address critical realities faced by South-South migrants.
This publication thoroughly investigates key issues of the migration debate, spanning from the terminological and contextual meaning of migration and development. It also critically examines some of the key features that human mobility in the global South is characterized by, including the prevalence of intra-regional and labor mobility, the role of diasporas communities in developing countries, South-South remittances patterns, the influence of environmental factors on the decision to migrate and the rising number of child migrants.
By carefully moving the lens from the frequently examined South-North and North-North movements to human mobility within the Southern regions of the world, this book questions the traditional conception of the migration paradigm. It offers knowledge and insights that will help to expand the debate as well as stimulate further research on this important topic and, hopefully, promote future activities aimed at the protection of migrants and their families living in the South. As a result, it is an ideal resource for migration scholars, policy-makers and development practitioners.
