Technical report TR94-03. The growth of commercial and academic interest in parallel and distributed computing during the past fifteen years has been accompanied by a corresponding increase in the number of available parallel programming systems (PPS). However, little work has been done to...
Enrollment in Computing Science university programs is at a dangerously low level. A major reason for this is the general lack of interest in Computing Science by females. In this paper, we discuss our experience with using a computer game construction environment as a vehicle to encourage female...
Technical report TR94-04. This document is a user's manual for version 2.2 of the Enterprise parallel programming system. Enterprise is an interactive graphical programming environment for designing, coding, debugging, testing and executing programs in a distributed hardware environment. ...
Technical report TR95-02. This paper contains an introduction and user manual for the Enterprise Parallel Programming System, including the programming model, the meta-programming model and tools (animation, replay and debugging). | TRID-ID TR95-02
Technical report TR93-09. The explosive growth of commercial and academic interest in parallel and distributed computing during the past fifteen years has been accompanied by a corresponding increase in the number of available parallel programming systems, and in the variety of approaches to...
Technical report TR91-17. Workstation environments have been in use for more than a decade now. Although a network of workstations together represents a large amount of aggregate computing power, single users often cannot utilize these resources for their applications. Enterprise is a...
Technical report TR01-10. For two DNA or protein sequences of length m and n, dynamic programming alignment algorithms like Needleman-Wunsch and Smith-Waterman take O(m x n) time and use O(m x n) space, so we refer to them as full matrix (FM) algorithms. This space requirement means that large...
To compete in today's market, companies that develop computer role-playing games (CRPGs) must quickly and reliably create realistic, engaging game stories. Indeed, intricate storylines and realism that goes beyond graphics have become major product differentiators. To establish both, it's...
Many computer games use custom scripts to control the ambient behaviors of non-player characters (NPCs). Therefore, a story writer must write fragments of computer code for the hundreds or thousands of NPCs in the game world. The challenge is to create entertaining and non-repetitive behaviors...
The unprecedented growth in numbers of children playing computer games has stimulated discussion and research regarding what, if any, educational value these games have for teaching and learning. The research on this topic has primarily focused on children as players of computer games rather than...
