    A new, simple, and symmetric algorithm can be implemented that results in higher levels of detail in solid objects than previously possible with autostereograms. In a stereoscope, an optical instrument similar to binoculars, each eye views a different picture and thereby receives the specific image that would have arisen naturally. An early suggestion for a color stereo computer display involved a... View full abstract»

    A vital tool-box component, the CProf cache profiling system lets programmers identify hot spots by providing cache performance information at the source-line and data-structure level. Our purpose is to introduce a broad audience to cache performance profiling and tuning techniques. Although used sporadically in the supercomputer and multiprocessor communities, these techniques also have broad app... View full abstract»

    Metal-based communications between subsystems and chips has become the limiting factor in high-speed computing. Maturing optics-based technologies offer advantages that may unplug this bottleneck. Optical interconnects offer high-speed computers key advantages over metal interconnects. These include (1) high spatial and temporal bandwidths, (2) high-speed transmission, (3) low crosstalk independen... View full abstract»

    The World-Wide Web, an information service on the Internet, uses hypertext links to other textual documents or files. Users can click on a highlighted word or words in the text to provide additional information about the selected word(s). Users can also access graphic pictures, images, audio clips, or even full-motion video through hypermedia, an extension of hypertext. One of the most popular gra... View full abstract»

    With the constant barrage of new systems, porting software applications is inevitable. This article takes a look at the problems involved in porting an Ada/C application. The porting effort begins when the software architecture is defined and the code implemented. The task is completed with the successful execution of the software on all target platforms. The AFATDS porting effort to the HP RISC p... View full abstract»

    The introduction of computers into the control of potentially dangerous devices has led to a growing awareness of the possible contribution of software to serious accidents. The number of computer-related accidents so far has been small due to the restraint shown in introducing computers into safety-critical control loops. However, as the economic and technological benefits of using computers beco... View full abstract»

    This article examines the legal issues affecting people who spend a lot of time in the computer hardware/software arena. It discusses some of the basic patent-application disclosure requirements which inventors must satisfy. These requirements enumerate what inventors must include in the patent application to meet the US Patent Office's definition of a "fully described" invention. To more clearly ... View full abstract»

    For pt.1 see ibid., p.96-8, September 1994. Although advanced information customization-transforming information so that it is appropriate to a particular consumer at a particular time-shares some characteristics of other information science disciplines, it is set apart by a need for such capabilities as transformation of individual documents, interactivity, and nonprescriptive structuring. Inform... View full abstract»
