    Applications employing digital signal processing (DSP) has mushroomed over the past fifteen years. DSP techniques are now employed in television and radio receivers, in telephones, in automobile engines, in medical diagnostics, in robotics, in military systems, to just name a few. Its popularity stems from its flexibility. DSP also parallels the advances made in low cost computers and specialized ... View full abstract»

    Using large application specific integrated circuits (ASICs), typically with at least 50,000 (50K) gates, is on the rise. Hardware design methodology has turned to CAE (computer-aided engineering) tools to simulate and verify performance. These tools are usually called hardware description languages (HDLs). Digital systems are becoming increasingly complex. Simulating designs using conventional or... View full abstract»

  • Mirroring our thought processes [recurrent neural network and time series in forecasting]

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):36 - 41
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1304 KB)

    To employ simple exponential smoothing in statistical forecasting, we essentially have to assume that the time series fluctuates at a gradually changing mean level. Forecasts are created on an iterative basis by weighing averages of observed values in the time series. The weights are assigned unequally with heavier weights applied to the most recent observations and exponentially declining weights... View full abstract»

  • Waiting in line [queuing theory]

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):11 - 13
    Cited by:  Papers (2)

    Queuing phenomenon encompasses all activities of our lives. We have to wait in line whenever the number of servers or the service rate of the server does not match the rate at which the customers arrive in the queue. Queuing theory is the formal analysis of this phenomenon in search of finding the optimum solution to this problem so that everybody gets service without waiting for a long time in li...

    The processing power of today's computers is relatively ineffective unless they can be efficiently interconnected, both locally and globally. On the horizon is the asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) which addresses the switching paradigm for broadband technologies. ATM allocates the total network bandwidth and time to bring multimedia services to the user. Thus, the future of the LAN is ensured. It ... View full abstract»

  • Best of both worlds [formal and semi-formal software engineering]

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):29 - 32
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (892 KB)

    The objective of software engineering is modeling software systems to support effective system synthesis and analysis. The traditional approach is using semi-formal models and accompanying design methodologies. Formal models represent an alternative to semi-formal models supporting precise representation and proof capabilities. These two approaches are complimentary, not competitive. Formal method...

  • Using fuzzy set theory

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):33 - 35
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (600 KB)

    Two main trends are mentioned: the fuzzy set theory and the fuzzy logic. Both build upon set theory and logic, respectively. Three features distinguish the approaches: (1) the use of so called linguistic variables, instead of or together with numeric variables; (2) the use of fuzzy conditional statements to represent simple relations between variables; and (3) the characterization of complex relat...
