A Coalgebraic Semantics of Subtyping

Erik Poll (2010)

RAIRO - Theoretical Informatics and Applications

Coalgebras have been proposed as formal basis for the semantics of objects in the sense of object-oriented programming. This paper shows that this semantics provides a smooth interpretation for subtyping, a central notion in object-oriented programming. We show that different characterisations of behavioural subtyping found in the literature can conveniently be expressed in coalgebraic terms. We also investigate the subtle difference between behavioural subtyping and refinement.

A formal analysis of the computational dynamics in GIGANTEC.

Amr Badr (2001)

Mathware and Soft Computing

An evolutionary algorithm formalism has been forwarded in a previous research, and implemented in the system GIGANTEC: Genetic Induction for General Analytical Non-numeric Task Evolution Compiler [Bad98][Bad99]. A dynamical model is developed to analyze the behaviour of the algorithm. The model is dependent in its analysis on classical Compilers Theory, Game Theory and Markov Chains and its convergence characteristics. The results conclude that a limiting state is reached, which is independent of...

A Generalized Model of PAC Learning and its Applicability

Thomas Brodag, Steffen Herbold, Stephan Waack (2014)

RAIRO - Theoretical Informatics and Applications - Informatique Théorique et Applications

We combine a new data model, where the random classification is subjected to rather weak restrictions which in turn are based on the Mammen−Tsybakov [E. Mammen and A.B. Tsybakov, Ann. Statis. 27 (1999) 1808–1829; A.B. Tsybakov, Ann. Statis. 32 (2004) 135–166.] small margin conditions, and the statistical query (SQ) model due to Kearns [M.J. Kearns, J. ACM 45 (1998) 983–1006] to what we refer to as PAC + SQ model. We generalize the class conditional constant noise (CCCN) model introduced by Decatur...

A metric for evaluating software architecture and communication models consistency

Jean-Yves Lafaye, Georges Louis (2010)

RAIRO - Theoretical Informatics and Applications

Among several alternative viewpoints for building software quality metrics, evaluating the consistency between different models in a software specification or implementation appears to be fruitful. An obvious difficulty is that different models are usually expressed by means of different concepts, and then, confronting heterogeneous representations is not straightforward. In this paper, we propose a solution for measuring the consistency between the architecture and the communication models. After...

A mixed–FEM and BEM coupling for a three-dimensional eddy current problem

Salim Meddahi, Virginia Selgas (2003)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique

We study in this paper the electromagnetic field generated in a conductor by an alternating current density. The resulting interface problem (see Bossavit (1993)) between the metal and the dielectric medium is treated by a mixed–FEM and BEM coupling method. We prove that our BEM-FEM formulation is well posed and that it leads to a convergent Galerkin method.

A neural implementation of multi-adjoint logic programs via sf-homogenization.

Jesús Medina, Enrique Mérida-Casermeiro, Manuel Ojeda-Aciego (2005)

Mathware and Soft Computing

A generalization of the homogenization process needed for the neural implementation of multi-adjoint logic programming (a unifying theory to deal with uncertainty, imprecise data or incomplete information) is presented here. The idea is to allow to represent a more general family of adjoint pairs, but maintaining the advantage of the existing implementation recently introduced in [6]. The soundness of the transformation is proved and its complexity is analysed. In addition, the corresponding generalization...

A new interpretor for PARI/GP

Bill Allombert (2008)

Journal de Théorie des Nombres de Bordeaux

When Henri Cohen and his coworkers set out to write PARI twenty years ago, GP was an afterthought. While GP has become the most commonly used interface to the PARI library by a large margin, both the gp interpretor and the GP language are primitive in design. Paradoxically, while gp allows to handle very high-level objects, GP itself is a low-level language coming straight from the seventies.We rewrote GP as a compiler/evaluator pair, implementing several high-level features (statically scoped variables,...

A niching scheme for steady state GA-P and its application to fuzzy rule based classifiers induction.

Luciano Sánchez Ramos, José Antonio Corrales González (2000)

Mathware and Soft Computing

A new method for applying grammar based Genetic Programming to learn fuzzy rule based classifiers from examples is proposed. It will produce linguistically understandable, rule based definitions in which not all features are sent in the antecedents. A feature selection is implicit in the algorithm. Since both surface and deep structure will be learned, standard grammar based GP is not applicable to this problem. We have adapted GA-P algorithms, a method formerly defined as an hybrid between GA and...
