  1. 1. Empty Names and Reference

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Anna Bjurman; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; disquotational reference; pretense; possible individuals; fictional world; intensional fictional operator; rigidity; empty names; reference; Philosophical logic; Teoretisk filosofi; logik;

    Abstract : The problem of empty names derives from the fact that empty names fail to refer. The reference failure of empty names implies that sentences containing empty names lack truth-conditions. As a consequence those sentences are meaningless, according to many theories of meaning.

  2. 2. Applications and Extensions of Reference Attributed Grammars

    University dissertation from Department of Computer Science, Lund University

    Author : Eva Magnusson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; aspect-oriented compiler construction; reference attributes; fixed-point computations; Attribute grammars;

    Abstract : Programming languages are the main tools used to describe models of the real world and algorithms which manipulate these models. Over time much effort has been devoted to the task of making programming languages more high-level by enhancing their expressiveness, bringing it closer to the way the programmer thinks and reasons.

  3. 3. English Colour Terms in Context

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Anders Steinvall; Umeå universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; English language; basic colour terms; elaborate colour terms; cognitive linguistics; metonymy; domain; context; markedness; figurative meaning; type modification; classifying function; vantage; reference point; attribute; entrenchment; radial category; corpus; HUMANITIES and RELIGION Languages and linguistics Other Germanic languages English language; HUMANIORA och RELIGIONSVETENSKAP Språkvetenskap Övriga germanska språk Engelska språket; engelska; English;

    Abstract : This thesis examines usage of English colour terms in context, based on an extensive computerised text corpus, the Bank of English. It describes the ways in which English colour terms may be used to refer to nuances outside their normal area of designation and to attributes outside the colour domain. READ MORE

  4. 4. Dynamic Resampling for Preference-based Evolutionary Multi-objective Optimization of Stochastic Systems Improving the efficiency of time-constrained optimization

    University dissertation from Skövde : Högskolan i Skövde

    Author : Florian Siegmund; Högskolan i Skövde.; Högskolan i Skövde.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Evolutionary multi-objective optimization; simulation-based optimization; guided search; preference-based optimization; reference point; decision support; noise; stochastic systems; dynamic resampling; budget allocation; sequential sampling; hybrid; ranking and selection; Natural sciences; Naturvetenskap; Technology; Teknik;

    Abstract : In preference-based Evolutionary Multi-objective Optimization (EMO), the decision maker is looking for a diverse, but locally focused non-dominated front in a preferred area of the objective space, as close as possible to the true Pareto-front. Since solutions found outside the area of interest are considered less important or even irrelevant, the optimization can focus its efforts on the preferred area and find the solutions that the decision maker is looking for more quickly, i.

  5. 5. Aircraft Design Automation and Subscale Testing With Special Reference to Micro Air Vehicles

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : David Lundström; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : This dissertation concerns how design automation as well as rapid prototyping and testing of subscale prototypes can support aircraft design. A framework for design automation has been developed and is applied specifically to Micro Air Vehicles (MAV). READ MORE
