    Linda, a set of commands that can be added to an arbitrary programming language N to form the N-Linda parallel programming language, is described. Linda enables users to use parallelism efficiently for many applications on a wide range of machines. Linda helps parallel languages meet the following four goals: (1) to augment but not replace the (serial) programming language most suitable to solve t... View full abstract»

    The calibration of measurements of the four critical parameters that define an aircraft's air data state, the state of an aircraft relative to the air mass through which it is flying, is discussed. The parameters are altitude, airspeed, angle-of-attack, and angle-of-sideslip. The measurements are taken by external probes, usually located on the aircraft's forebody, and are affected by the aircraft... View full abstract»
