An Appreciation of the Subtleties of Shared Channels in occam3 (1993)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Waithe, S., & Kerridge, J. (1993). An Appreciation of the Subtleties of Shared Channels in occam3. In Transputer and Occam Research: New Directions (232-245)

By exploiting virtual channels implemented on the INMOS T9000 transputer, occam3 offers the facility of sharing. This allows us to declare a channel as SHARED which then allows an arbitrary number of processes to communicate across this channel. By m...

Adaptive systems: A solution to usability problems (1993)
Journal Article
Benyon, D. (1993). Adaptive systems: A solution to usability problems. User Modeling and User-Adapted Interaction, 3(1), 65-87. https://doi.org/10.1007/bf01099425

Improving the usability of computer systems is perhaps the most important goal of human-computer interaction research. Current approaches to usability engineering tend to focus on simply improving the interface. An alternative is to build intelligenc...

Adaptive systems: from intelligent tutoring to autonomous agents (1993)
Journal Article
Benyon, D., & Murray, D. (1993). Adaptive systems: from intelligent tutoring to autonomous agents. Knowledge-Based Systems, 6(4), 197-219. https://doi.org/10.1016/0950-7051%2893%2990012-i

Computer systems which can automatically alter aspects of their functionality or interface to suit the needs of individuals or groups of users have appeared over the years in a variety of guises. Most recently, attention has focused on intelligent in... Read More about Adaptive systems: from intelligent tutoring to autonomous agents.

A stack-based register set. (1993)
Report
Russell, G., & Shaw, P. (1993). A stack-based register set

Register windowing has become a common sight in high speed processors, reducing the memory traffic required to preserve register contents over sub-routine invocations. However, approaches to register windowing have changed little since their introduc... Read More about A stack-based register set..

An object-based processor cache. (1993)
Report
Russell, G., & Shaw, P. (1993). An object-based processor cache

In the past, many persistent object-oriented architecture designs have been based on traditional processor technologies. Such architectures invariantly attempt to insert an object-level abstraction mechanism over the traditional processorÕs virtual a... Read More about An object-based processor cache..

Memory resident databases: reliability, compression and performance. (1993)
Report
Cockshott, W. P., Cowie, A., Russell, G., & McGregor, D. (1993). Memory resident databases: reliability, compression and performance

The paper argues that recent developments in non-volatile solid-state store allow a new implementation paradigm for databases. This involves replacing slow rotating storage with all-semiconductor data stores. A mechanism is presented to achieve high...

Simulation of radiation from a microstrip antenna using three-dimensional finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method. (1993)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Buchanan, W. J., Gupta, N. K., & Arnold, J. M. (1993). Simulation of radiation from a microstrip antenna using three-dimensional finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method.

The authors have used the FDTD method to model and predict the radiation patterns from a microstrip antenna. One problem in modelling microstrip antennas is that these structures are highly resonant. The authors have described techniques to reduce th... Read More about Simulation of radiation from a microstrip antenna using three-dimensional finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method..

Parallel processing techniques in EMP propagation using 3D finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method. (1993)
Journal Article
Buchanan, W. J., & Gupta, N. K. (1993). Parallel processing techniques in EMP propagation using 3D finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method. Advances in engineering software, 18(3), 149-159. https://doi.org/10.1016/0965-9978%2893%2990062-X

The authors have applied the 3D FDTD technique to simulate the propagation of electrical signals on a microstrip antenna using a four-transputer array connected to a 386-based PC. This relates to work currently being carried out into the propagation... Read More about Parallel processing techniques in EMP propagation using 3D finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method..

Viewing objects. (1993)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Barclay, P. J., & Kennedy, J. (1993). Viewing objects. In M. Worboys, & A. F. Grundy (Eds.), Advances in databases: Proceedings of the 11th British National Conference on Database Systems (93-110). https://doi.org/10.1007/3-540-56921-9_6

This paper examines the incorporation of database views into an object oriented conceptual model. An approach is presented where views are themselves objects, instances of view classes. These view objects provide new ways of interacting with preexist... Read More about Viewing objects..

Using a persistent system to construct a customised interface to an ecological db. (1993)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Barclay, P. J., Fraser, C., & Kennedy, J. (1992, July). Using a persistent system to construct a customised interface to an ecological db. Presented at 1st International workshop on Interfaces to Database

New applications of information technology have increasingly sophisticated user interface requirements. Such interfaces are sometimes highly application specific and therefore require to be customised to the given application area. Technology is requ...
