    LR is an LR(1) parser generation system. It is written entirely in portable ANS1 standard Fortran 66 and has been successfully operated on a number of computers. LR uses a powerful algorithm of Pager's to generate a space efficient parser for any LR(1) grammar. Generated parsers have been used in a variety of compilers, utility programs, and applications packages. View full abstract»

    A simple portable interpreter for testing the specifications of problems is presented in this paper. These specificiations are supposed to be expressed in the formalism of attribute grammars. The parsing and the semantics evaluation are carried out simultaneously, so that the parsing can be directed by the semantics. This increases the power of the grammars and context sensitive characteristics of... View full abstract»

    The problem of performing multiple attribute clustering in a dynamic database is studied. The extended K-d tree method is presented. In an extended K-d tree organization, the basic k-d tree structure after modification is used as the structure of the directory which organizes the data records in the secondary storage. The discriminator value of each level of the directory determines the partitioni... View full abstract»

  • On Homogeneity and On Line=Off-Line Behavior in M/G/1 Queueing Systems

    Operational analysis replaces certain classical queueing theory assumptions with the conditions of "homogeneous service times" and "on-line= off-line behavior." In this paper we explore the relationship between the operational and classical concepts for the sample paths of an M/G/1 queueing system. The primary results are that the sample paths can have these operational properties with nonzero pro... View full abstract»

    A software engineering research study has been undertaken to empirically analyze and compare various software development approaches; its fundamental features and initial findings are presented in this paper. An experiment was designed and conducted to confirm certain suppositions concerning the beneficial effects of a particular disciplined methodology for software development. The disciplined me...

    This paper deals with the following mechanism for controlling the multiprogramming set in a demand paging system: processes are dynamically divided into several categories according to the number of page faults generated during their residence in main memory. A process is admitted into the multiprogramming set only if there is enough space free in the main memory to contain the number of pages cor... View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

The IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering is interested in well-defined theoretical results and empirical studies that have potential impact on the construction, analysis, or management of software. The scope of this Transactions ranges from the mechanisms through the development of principles to the application of those principles to specific environments. Specific topic areas include: a) development and maintenance methods and models, e.g., techniques and principles for the specification, design, and implementation of software systems, including notations and process models; b) assessment methods, e.g., software tests and validation, reliability models, test and diagnosis procedures, software redundancy and design for error control, and the measurements and evaluation of various aspects of the process and product; c) software project management, e.g., productivity factors, cost models, schedule and organizational issues, standards; d) tools and environments, e.g., specific tools, integrated tool environments including the associated architectures, databases, and parallel and distributed processing issues; e) system issues, e.g., hardware-software trade-off; and f) state-of-the-art surveys that provide a synthesis and comprehensive review of the historical development of one particular area of interest.
