    Various paradigms that support high-level programming are discussed independently of supporting languages. The paradigms are grouped according to their approach to problem solving. The operational approach describes step-by-step how to construct a solution. The demonstrational approach is a variation on it that illustrates the solution operationally for specific examples and lets the system genera... View full abstract»

    The ways in which a persistent programming language allows the reuse of data and code objects by preserving them as persistent objects is discussed. The programming language chi , which supports persistent programming, is described. The language is innovative in that it elevates capabilities to the programming level and gives the programmer a convenient way to express which objects are persistent ... View full abstract»

    The alleged health hazards of prolonged exposure to computer monitors which have engendered much discussion in the industry and in legislative bodies, are discussed from two different viewpoints. Ashley states that, in terms of measured quantities and current knowledge of biological interactions, only the ELF electric fields near visual display units (VDUs) have the possibility of a significant bi...

    The Data Diffusion Machine (DDM), a cache-only memory architecture (COMA) that relies on a hierarchical network structure, is described. The key ideas behind DDM are introduced by describing a small machine, which could be a COMA on its own or a subsystem of a larger COMA, and its protocol. A large machine with hundreds of processors is also described. The DDM prototype project is discussed, and s... View full abstract»

    Epilog, a Unix-based real-time operational support system for electroencephalogram (EEG) waveform acquisition, storage, analysis, display, and printing, is described. The system is designed to be used for diagnosis and surgical planning in a large epilepsy program. The implemented system has two monitoring units consisting of four rooms with their associated computer, video, and medical support sy... View full abstract»
