Acoustic Flame Suppression Mechanics in a Microgravity Environment
(Microgravity Science and Technology, 2015)
The following paper deals with acoustic flame suppression mechanics in a microgravity environment with measurements taken from an Arduino-based sensor system and validation of the technique. A Zippo lighter is ignited ...
Starvation-Free Solutions of Mutual Exclusion Problems Using Semaphores
(Proceedings of the ACM South Central Regional Conference, 1987-10)
The standard implementation of mutual exclusion by means of a semaphore allows starvation of processes. Between 1979 and 1986, three algorithms were proposed that preclude starvation. These algorithms use a special kind ...
Design of a distributed computer security lab
(Journal of Computing Sciences in Colleges, 2004)
Across the US and the rest of the world, there exists a lack of computer security components in many CS/IT curricula. For those programs that do have such components in computer security, a common difficulty is to integrate ...
A model for open content communities to support effective learning and teaching
(Proceedings of the IADIS International Conference on Web-based Communities 2004, 2004-04)
Open Source Software (OSS) has provided a successful model for community-based collaborative development of software. The success of OSS has triggered interests in applying similar approaches to other areas besides software ...
Using a Pre-Assessment Exam to Construct an Effective Concept-Based Grade Predicting Genetic Program
(Proceedings of the 2005 ACM SIGCSE Technical Symposium of Computer Science Education, 2005-02)
There is a limit on the amount of time a faculty member may devote to each student. As a consequence, a faculty member must quickly determine which student needs more attention than others throughout a semester. One of the ...
A More General Model For Handling Missing Information In Relational DataBases Using A 3-Valued Logic
(SIGMOD Record, 1991-09)
Codd proposed the use of two interpretations of nulls to handle missing information in relational databases that may lead to a 4-valued logic [Codd86, Codd87]. In a more general model, three interpretations of nulls are ...
Web-Centric Projects in Computer Science Courses
(J. Computing in Small Colleges, 2002-04)
As the computing world becomes increasingly Web-centric, software systems will obtain more contents and services from outside the organizations. As a result, more university computer science courses will add Web server-side ...
Teaching a graduate expert systems course
(SIGCSE Bulletin, 1990-12)
Because expert systems technology is relatively new, there are only a few papers describing a graduate course on the subject. Most of the described courses were either seminar oriented or centered around a student project, ...
An Efficient Starvation-Free Semaphore Solution for the Graphical Mutual Exclusion Problem.
(The Computer Journal, 1991-08)
A fast method for constructing efficient solutions for graphical mutual exclusion problems based on semaphores associated with processes is described. The number of semaphores used is equal to the number of processes in ...
