Surface construction from planar contours.
Many scientific and technical endeavors require the reconstruction of a three-dimensional solid from a collection of two-dimensional contours. One method for this reconstruction involves a procedure whereby individual ...
The feasibility of automatic storage reclamation with concurrent program execution in a LISP environment
In "classical" LISP implementations, program execution/ computation continues until there is no more memory available (i.e. the free list of available cells has become exhausted). When this happens, user program (s) ...
Relational programming: design and implementation of a prototype interpreter
Relational programming is a methodology which combines the advantages of functional programming with the relatively simple laws which govern relations. The goal is to give the programmer an environment which allows a ...
The formal specification of a visual display devices: design and implementation.
The visual display is usually treated as a separate I/O device. The interface to the programmer is at a low conceptual level and vaguely defined. Software that uses sophisticated displays are notoriously non-portable. ...
How cognitive processes aid program understanding
A theoretical model of how an expert programmer goes about understanding a piece of software is presented. This understanding plays an especially critical role in software maintenance tasks. The model is based on three ...
Top-down parsing syntax error recovery.
Compiler writers continue to search for a reliable method of syntactic error recovery. Spurious error reports and confusing diagnostics are common problems confronting the programmer. Innumerable error possibilities have ...
