Autoepistemic Circumscription and Logic Programming
Technical report TR92-18. We propose a framework of autoepistemic reasoning in which the underlying semantics is determined by the choice of a nonmonotonic inference mechanism and by specifying a belief constraint. While the latter makes the approach flexible in meeting possibly different...
Technical report TR95-23. Multiple threads can be used not only as a mechanism for tolerating unpredictable communication latency but also for facilitating dynamic scheduling and load balancing. Multithreaded systems are well suited to highly irregular and dynamic applications, such as tree...
Rainbow: Prototyping the DIOM Interoperable System
Technical report TR96-32. The goal of the DIOM (Distributed Interoperable Object Model) project is the development of adaptive methodologies and toolkits for the integration and access of heterogeneous information sources in large-scale and rapidly growing network environments. The Rainbow...
Technical report TR96-30. The increased complexity of object-oriented models necessitates the enhancement of adaptiveness and robustness of an object-oriented design towards changing requirements. The understanding of what properties are critical for construction of an adaptive schema design...
On the Futility of Blind Search
Technical report TR96-18. This paper might have been subtitled \"An algorithmicist looks at no free lunch.\" We use simple adversary arguments to redevelop and explore some of the no free lunch (NFL) theorems and perhaps extend them a little. A second goal is to clarify the relationship of NFL...
Technical report TR08-18. We present an advanced Bidirectional A* algorithm featuring an application of Frontier Search and a strategy for the performance-efficient utilization of External Memory. We present the results of an experimental evaluation demonstrating that this algorithm is capable of...
Technical report TR93-07. A \"first\" implementation of the Modular Smalltalk object-oriented programming language is presented. The implementation includes an object-oriented parser, object-oriented representation for code fragments and an object-oriented C-code generator, all implemented in...
Modeling and Querying Multimedia Data
Technical report TR98-05. Amidst the dramatic developments of computer technology in the last decades, we have seen a growing interest in supporting multimedia data. Compared with traditional data, the most noticeable features of multimedia data are their spatiality (the spatial layout of...
Technical report TR02-08. Previous image-based rendering approaches rely on either accurate three-dimensional geo-metric information or dense image samples. It is, therefore, hard to render a complex real scene due to the difficulties of the following two problems: (1) how to model and represent...
