Towards a Tool Kit For the Systems Analyst (1987)
Journal Article
Benyon, D., & Skidmore, S. (1987). Towards a Tool Kit For the Systems Analyst. Computer Journal, 30(1), 2-7. https://doi.org/10.1093/comjnl/30.1.2

A review of the major systems analysis methodologies is undertaken in order to examine the aspects of information systems (IS) which they seem best able to represent. The importance of a collection of techniques – the analyst's tool kit – is stressed... Read More about Towards a Tool Kit For the Systems Analyst.

Communicating parallel processes (1986)
Journal Article
Kerridge, J., & Simpson, D. (1986). Communicating parallel processes. Software: Practice and Experience, 16(1), 63-86. https://doi.org/10.1002/spe.4380160106

By considering the problem of an event timer it is shown that the commonly available synchronizing facilities (monitors, CSP, distributed processes) are not able to always satisfactorily model the requirements of several processes which must run in p...

Open-loop transversal equaliser of optimal length (1983)
Journal Article
Rutter, M., & Cowan, C. F. N. (1983). Open-loop transversal equaliser of optimal length. Electronics Letters, 19, 208-210. https://doi.org/10.1049/el%3A19830144

As a rule, in equaliser training algorithms complexity increases with efficiency. Unfortunately, complex recursive algorithms do not suit high-bandwidth systems. This letter describes a nonrecursive technique for the derivation of the weight vect... Read More about Open-loop transversal equaliser of optimal length.

Who would you trust to identify you in accessing your health record?
Presentation / Conference
Buchanan, W. J., Anderson, C., Smales, A., Varga, J., Burns, N., Uthmani, O., …Lawson, A. Who would you trust to identify you in accessing your health record?

Within health and social care there is a strong need to provide access to highly sensitive information, and one which requires high levels of identity assurance. This paper outlines a joint project between Edinburgh Napier University and miiCard [10]... Read More about Who would you trust to identify you in accessing your health record?.
