Annotation Papers from an October 2001 symposium present technical achievements by academic and industrial researchers in augmented reality, a field that encompasses the disciplines of signal processing, computer vision, graphics, user interfaces, wearable computing, mobile computing, and information visualization. Papers are arranged in sections on medical augmented reality, components and gestures, indoor and outdoor tracking, mobile augmented reality, video and optical see- through HMD, and painting and projecting. Specific topics include finger tracking for interaction in augmented environments, markerless augmented reality with a real-time affine region tracker, optical see- through calibration with vision-based trackers, dynamic shader lamps, and testing information delivery methods using augmented reality.

Real World Multicore Embedded Systems

Chapter 11. Partitioning Programs for Multicore Systems

One of the hardest parts of the process of migrating from single-core to multicore is making programs that used to work well on single-core architectures work correctly, but more quickly, on a new multicore architecture. Careless partitioning of a sequential program can result in subtle, hard-to-detect bugs – some of which may not even be reliably repeatable. This chapter discusses first why it is that such problems occur, and then how to deal with it. The challenge is that solving this problem through manual techniques alone is enormously difficult. But tools have been developed that help with some of the more difficult aspects of program partitioning, so the chapter concludes with a discussion of those tools.

Problems Solved

Author: Bill Pronzini

Publisher: Crossroad Press


Category: Fiction

TWO LEGENDS! Today, Bill Pronzini is famed for his private-eye stories about the “Nameless Detective” and for his Shamus-award winning short stories, and Barry N. Malzberg is one of America’s premier science-fiction writers, but back in their salad days they collaborated on a number of stories, which have now become legendary. Many fans have heard of them, but very few have had the privilege of reading them — until now. Problems Solved collects all their crime and mystery collaborations, mostly written during the 1970’s and early 1980’s, and a few recent collaborations (including two new stories written especially for this volume). The stories range from suspense (“Night Rider”) to irony (“What Kind of Person Are You?”) to twists-in-the-tale (“Problems Solved”) to science-fictional detection, including three stories about an unnamed Luna Immigration Inspector. Others emphasize sports (“What’s a Chicago Cub?” asks an entrepreneur of the future), and one, “Another Burnt-Out Case,” is in Bill Pronzini’s words, “a weird comic Hitchcockian crime fantasy with a carnival setting, whose last two lines elicit gleeful chortles from both of us to this day.”

There is, and this book is the solution: a collection of ten well-written, entertaining essays by recent college-graduates-turned-writers that honestly and amusingly recount wild, traumatizing, and hilarious high-school events, using common SAT words as a study tool.

The Politics of Nuclear Reversal

"Why are states willing to give up their nuclear weapons programs? This book presents a new theory for how external inducements supplied by the United States can convince even the most committed of proliferators to abandon weapons pursuit. Existing theories focus either on carrots or sticks. I explore how using both positive and negative inducements, in the shadow of military force, can persuade both friends and foes not to continue their nuclear weapons pursuit. I draw on worldwide cross-national data on nuclear reversal, case studies of Iran and North Korea among others, and interviews with diplomats, policy-makers, and analysts. I show that the majority of states have been persuaded to reverse their nuclear weapons programs when offered incentives from the United States. Moreover, I demonstrate that these tools are especially effective during periods of leadership transition and can work on both allies and adversaries. My theory and evidence also suggest a broader conception of counterproliferation than currently exists, identifying how carrots and sticks used together can accomplish one of the international community's most important policy objectives"--

Conducting Multiple Site Evaluations in Real-World Settings

New Directions for Evaluation, Number 94

In the past decade, interest in multisite evaluation has grown, but there is still not a substantial literature on the issues involved in conducting evaluations in multiple sites. There are, however, a number of threads that readers may be interested in pursuing. The literature on clinical trials increasingly contains references to conducting multicenter clinical trials. Cluster evaluation is an approach to multisite evaluation that has been developed by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation for improving the evaluation of certain foundation initiatives. The studies described in this volume represent an approach to multisite evaluation that has much in common with the clinical trials tradition. However, it shares with cluster evaluation an appreciation for the adjustments that are necessary to reflect the realities of conducting evaluation research in actual service settings. This is the 94th issue of the quarterly report New Directions for Evaluation.
