This volume honours the life and work of Solomon Feferman, one of the most prominent mathematical logicians of the latter half of the 20th century. In the collection of essays presented here, researchers examine Feferman’s work on mathematical as well as specific methodological and philosophical issues that tie into mathematics. Feferman’s work was largely based in mathematical logic (namely model theory, set theory, proof theory and computability theory), but also branched out into methodological and philosophical issues, making it well known beyond the borders of the mathematics community. With regard to methodological issues, Feferman supported concrete projects. On the one hand, these projects calibrate the proof theoretic strength of subsystems of analysis and set theory and provide ways of overcoming the limitations imposed by Gödel’s incompleteness theorems through appropriate conceptual expansions. On the other, they seek to identify novel axiomatic foundations for mathematical practice, truth theories, and category theory. In his philosophical research, Feferman explored questions such as “What is logic?” and proposed particular positions regarding the foundations of mathematics including, for example, his “conceptual structuralism.” The contributing authors of the volume examine all of the above issues. Their papers are accompanied by an autobiography presented by Feferman that reflects on the evolution and intellectual contexts of his work. The contributing authors critically examine Feferman’s work and, in part, actively expand on his concrete mathematical projects. The volume illuminates Feferman’s distinctive work and, in the process, provides an enlightening perspective on the foundations of mathematics and logic.

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 14th Asian Symposium on Programming Languages and Systems, APLAS 2016, held in Hanoi, Vietnam, in November 2016. The papers cover a variety of topics such as semantics, logics, and foundational theory; design of languages type systems, and foundational calculi; domain-specific languages; compilers, interpreters, and abstract machines; program derivation, synthesis and transformation; program analysis, verification, and model-checking; logic, constraint, probabilistic and quantum programming; software security; concurrency and parallelism; tools for programming and implementation.
8th International Conference, TACAS 2002, Held as Part of the Joint European Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software, ETAPS 2002, Grenoble, France, April 8-12, 2002. Proceedings
Author: Joost-Pieter Katoen,Perdita Stevens
ETAPS 2002 was the ?fth instance of the European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software. ETAPS is an annual federated conference that was established in 1998by combining a number of existing and new conferences. This year it comprised 5 conferences (FOSSACS, FASE, ESOP, CC, TACAS), 13 satellite workshops (ACL2, AGT, CMCS, COCV, DCC, INT, LDTA, SC, SFEDL, SLAP, SPIN, TPTS, and VISS), 8invited lectures (not including those speci?c to the satellite events), and several tutorials. The events that comprise ETAPS address various aspects of the system - velopment process, including speci?cation, design, implementation, analysis, and improvement. The languages, methodologies, and tools which support these - tivities are all well within its scope. Di?erent blends of theory and practice are represented, with an inclination towards theory with a practical motivation on one hand and soundly-based practice on the other. Many of the issues involved in software design apply to systems in general, including hardware systems, and the emphasis on software is not intended to be exclusive.
20th International Conference, CAV 2008 Princeton, NJ, USA, July 7-14, 2008, Proceedings
Author: Aarti Gupta,Sharad Malik
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
This volume contains the proceedings of the 20th International Conference on Computer Aided Veri?cation (CAV) held in Princeton, New Jersey, USA, d- ing July 7–14, 2008. CAV is dedicated to the advancement of the theory and practice of computer-aided formal analysis methods for hardware and software systems. Its scope ranges from theoretical results to concrete applications, with an emphasis on practical veri?cation tools and the underlying algorithms and techniques. Overall, 2008 has been a historical year for CAV. – It marks the 20th anniversaryof CAV, which has servedas a forum for ideas whose impact is now clearly felt in research and practice. – It celebrates the recognitionreceived by Edmund M. Clarke, E. Allen Em- son and Joseph Sifakis as winners of the 2007 ACM Turing Award for their researchin model checking.CAV is proudto have been the intellectual home for model checking over these 20 years. – Inrecognitionofthelargebodyofcontributionsmadetothe?eldofcomput- aidedveri?cation,theCAVAwardwasinstitutedthisyearwiththe?rstw- ner announcedatthe conference,andacitationto appear inthe proceedings of the 21st CAV. There were 131 paper submissions, divided into 104 regular and 27 tool - pers. These went through an active review process, with each submission - viewed by at least 3, and on average4, members of the ProgramCommittee. We also sought external reviews from experts in certain areas. Authors had the - portunity to respond to the initial reviews during an author response period. All these inputs were used by the Program Committee in selecting a ?nal program with 33 regular papers and 14 tool papers.
The state of the art of the bioengineering aspects of the morphology of microorganisms and their relationship to process performance are described in this volume.

Among the topics covered are type theory, program transformation, static analysis, verification, concurrent systems, code generation, programming calculi, functional programming languages, language support, component systems, real-time systems, embedded systems, formal systems design, object-oriented design, Java objects, program optimization .
This book demonstrates that while elliptic and hyperbolic tori determine the distribution of maximal invariant tori, they themselves form n-parameter families. Therefore, torus bifurcations of high co-dimension may be found in a single given Hamiltonian system, absent untypical conditions or external parameters. The text moves logically from the integrable case, in which symmetries allow for reduction to bifurcating equilibria, to non-integrability, where smooth parametrisations must be replaced by Cantor sets.
Narrative research is frequently described as a diverse enterprise, yet the kinds of narrative data that it bases itself on present a striking consensus: they tend to be autobiographical and elicited in interviews. This book sets out to carve out a space alongside this narrative canon for stories that have not made it to the mainstream of narrative and identity analysis, yet they abound as well as being crucial sites of subjectivity in everyday interactional contexts. By labelling those stories as ‘small’, the book emphasizes their distinctiveness, both interactionally and as an antidote to the tradition of ‘grand’ narratives research. Drawing primarily on the audio-recorded small stories of a group of female adolescents that was studied ethnographically in a town in Greece, the book follows a language-focused and practice-based approach in order to provide fresh answers and perspectives on some of the perennial questions of narrative analysis: How can we (re)conceptualize the mainstay concepts of tellership, structure and evaluation in small stories? How do the participants’ telling identities connect with their larger social identities? Finally, what does the project of storying self (and other) mean in small stories and how can it be best explored?
The 13 full papers cover software quality and testing, software architecture, developing distributed and real-time systems, analyzing distributed systems, and programming languages and compilers. An extended abstract is also presented of the invited talk on software reuse from perspectives of architecture, process, and organizations for business success. Among the specific topics are a fractal blackboard framework, exploiting wait tolerance in effective batching for video-on-demand scheduling, a visual data flow language based on iterative constructs, and extension mechanisms in Montana.
