Machine Theory

By Jordi Cortadella, Alex Yakovlev, Grzegorz Rozenberg

This LNCS state of the art Survey is dedicated to the quite previous and famous behavioral paradigm in computing, concurrency, and to the ways that concurrency is exhibited or will be exploited in electronic units. The 9 chapters offered are equipped in 4 components on formal tools, asynchronous circuits, embedded platforms layout, and timed verification and function research.

Operators for Similarity Search: Semantics, Techniques and Usage Scenarios

This booklet offers a finished educational on similarity operators. The authors systematically survey the set of similarity operators, essentially concentrating on their semantics, whereas additionally touching upon mechanisms for processing them successfully. The e-book begins via supplying introductory fabric on similarity seek platforms, highlighting the crucial function of similarity operators in such platforms.

The basic building blocks are a? and a! denoting an input and an output action, respectively. If E and F are commands, then E; F denotes their concatenation, E | F denotes the union, and ∗[E] denotes the unbounded repetition of E. The safety and progress properties of the traces of a command are defined as follows. First we stipulate that commands always express safe snippets. Thus, every illegal trace obtained from a legal trace by adding an output symbol is labeled with , and every illegal trace obtained from a legal trace by adding an input symbol is labeled with ⊥.

The current release of di2pn accepts DISP rather than DI-Algebra. It also now performs peep-hole optimisations. Consequently, the Petri nets it produces are simpler, making them more readable and requiring less work to be performed by petrify. 4 Summary In the body of this chapter, we apply the DISP programming language to the design of a number of interesting aynchronous logic blocks that can be found in the literature. This includes two small, but real-world, design examples: (1) asynchronous controllers for a micropipeline stage, of the kind used in the ARMcompatible asynchronous processor core of the AMULET2e embedded system chip [6]; (2) a self-timed adder cell of the kind used in the arithmetic units of the Caltech asynchronous microprocessors [17, 18] and in the dual-rail cell library of the Tangram silicon compiler [12] (which is used for product design by Philips Semiconductors).
