This Festschrift quantity, devoted to He Jifeng at the celebration of his seventieth birthday in September 2013, comprises 24 refereed papers via major researchers, present and previous colleagues, who congratulated at a celebratory symposium held in Shanghai, China, throughout the tenth overseas Colloquium on Theoretical features of Computing, ICTAC 2013. The papers conceal a wide spectrum of topics, from foundational and theoretical issues to courses and structures concerns and to purposes, comprising formal tools, software program and structures modeling, semantics, legislation of programming, specification and verification, in addition to logics. He Jifeng is understood for his seminal paintings within the theories of programming and formal tools for software program engineering. he's quite linked to Unifying Theories of Programming (UTP) , the speculation of knowledge refinement and the legislation of programming, and the rCOS formal procedure for item and part procedure building. His publication on UTP with Tony Hoare has been generally learn and by means of a number of researchers, and it's been utilized in many postgraduate classes. He was once a senior researcher at Oxford in the course of 1984-1998, after which a senior examine fellow on the United countries collage foreign Institute for software program know-how (UNU-IIST) in Macau in the course of 1998-2005. He has been a professor and presently the Dean of the Institute of software program Engineering at East China common college, Shanghai, China. In 2005, He Jifeng used to be elected as an academician to the chinese language Academy of Sciences. He additionally acquired an honorary doctorate from the college of York. He gained a couple of prestigious technology and expertise awards, together with a 2d prize of traditional technology Award from the kingdom Council of China, a 1st prize of common technological know-how Award from the Ministry of schooling of China, a 1st prize of know-how Innovation from the Ministry of digital undefined, and a host awards from Shanghai government.

Download PDF by Flavio Junqueira, Benjamin Reed: ZooKeeper: Distributed process coordination

Building dispensed purposes is tough adequate with no need to coordinate the activities that lead them to paintings. This functional consultant exhibits how Apache ZooKeeper is helping you deal with dispensed platforms, so that you can concentration more often than not on program good judgment. despite ZooKeeper, enforcing coordination initiatives isn't trivial, yet this publication presents stable practices to offer you a head begin, and issues out caveats that builders and directors alike have to look ahead to alongside the way.

In 3 separate sections, ZooKeeper members Flavio Junqueira and Benjamin Reed introduce the foundations of dispensed structures, offer ZooKeeper programming innovations, and contain the data you want to administer this service.
• learn the way ZooKeeper solves universal coordination initiatives
• discover the ZooKeeper API’s Java and C implementations and the way they range
• Use how you can song and react to ZooKeeper kingdom adjustments
• deal with mess ups of the community, software procedures, and ZooKeeper itself
• know about ZooKeeper’s trickier features facing concurrency, ordering, and configuration
• Use the Curator high-level interface for connection administration
• get to grips with ZooKeeper internals and management instruments

The inherent hazards of switch are usually summed up within the misquoted chinese language curse “May you reside in attention-grabbing occasions. ” The submission strategy for the sixteenth foreign convention of Inductive good judgment Programming (ILP 2006) used to be an intensive (hopefully attention-grabbing yet no longer cursed) departure from earlier years.

Different strategies for extracting a test case from such a product graph exist. We can select a linear or adaptive test case, the shortest path or a random path to a fail-state, cover each fail-state or only one. Our experiments have shown that a combination of random and lazy shortest path strategies works well [3]. Lazy refers to the strategy of generating new test cases only, if the existing test cases do not kill a mutant. We have applied this explicit conformance checking technique to generate test cases to several case studies, including testing an HTTP server using LOTOS models [5], SIP servers [23] using LOTOS models, controllers [3] using UML models, and most challenging, hybrid systems [14] using Action Systems extended with qualitative reasoning models [4].

B. ] Pliant Modalities in Hybrid Event-B 41 III Differentiability: The behaviour of every pliant variable x in the interval [ti . . ti+1 ) is given by the solution of a well posed initial value problem D xs = φ(xs . ) (where xs is a relevant tuple of pliant variables and D is the time derivative). “Well posed” means that φ(xs . ) has Lipschitz constants which are uniformly bounded over [ti . . ti+1 ) bounding its variation with respect to xs, and that φ(xs . ) is measurable in t. Regarding the above, the Zeno condition is certainly a sensible restriction to demand of any acceptable system, but in general, its truth or falsehood can depend on the system’s full reachability relation, and is thus very frequently undecidable.
