  1. 1. Form & Formlessness Questioning aesthetic abstractions through art projects, cross-disciplinary studies and product design education

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Axl books

    Author : Cheryl Akner Koler; Konstfack.; [2007]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Aesthetics; Abstractions; Form; Design; Formgiving; Formlessness; Gestalt; Complexity; cross-disciplinary; Design; Design; Konst; Arts; Designdriven och gestaltande kunskapsproduktion; Designdriven och gestaltande kunskapsproduktion; Sensorium; rumsliga perceptioner; Sensorium; rumsliga perceptioner; Materiella kulturer; Materiella kulturer;

    Abstract : This research is based on empirical, embodied studies aimed to generate and regenerate aesthetic reasoning through three approaches:an educational approach concerned with developing an aesthetic discipline, supporting a formgiving process aimed to create tangible art-based approach supporting an open exploration of distortion and formlessnessa multi-disciplinary exploratory approach concerned with aesthetic experiences shared in laborations demonstrating complexity and transformation.

  2. 2. On Verification of Switched Systems using Abstractions

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Valur Einarsson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1998]

    Abstract : This thesis deals with modeling and analysis of a special class of hybrid systems, i.e., systems displaying behavior of both continuous and discrete nature. READ MORE

  3. 3. Approximations and abstractions for reasoning about machine arithmetic

    University dissertation from Uppsala University

    Author : Aleksandar Zeljic; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Datavetenskap med inriktning mot inbyggda system; Computer Science with specialization in Embedded Systems;

    Abstract : Safety-critical systems rely on various forms of machine arithmetic to perform their tasks: integer arithmetic, fixed-point arithmetic or floating-point arithmetic. The problem with machine arithmetic is that it can exhibit subtle differences in behavior compared to the ideal mathematical arithmetic, due to fixed-size representation in memory. READ MORE

  4. 4. Shared Memory Objects as Synchronization Abstractions: Algorithmic Implementations and Concurrent Applications

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Yiannis Nikolakopoulos; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; concurrent data structures; lock-free synchronization; iteration; data stream processing; parallelism;

    Abstract : Multicore and many-core architectures have penetrated the vast majority of computing systems, from high-end servers to low-energy embedded devices. From the hardware's perspective, performance scalability comes in the form of increasing numbers of cores. Nevertheless, fully utilizing this power is still an open research and engineering issue.
