Memristics: Memristors, Again? – Part Ii, How To Transform Wired ‘Translations’ Between Crossbars Into Interactions?, Rudolf Kaehr 2010 ThinkArt Lab Glasgow

Memristics: Memristors, Again? – Part Ii, How To Transform Wired ‘Translations’ Between Crossbars Into Interactions?, Rudolf Kaehr

Rudolf Kaehr

The idea behind this patchwork of conceptual interventions is to show the possibility of a “buffer-free” modeling of the crossbar architecture for memristive systems on the base of a purely difference-theoretical approach. It is considered that on a nano-electronic level principles of interpretation appears as mechanisms of complementarity. The most basic conceptual approach to such a complementarity is introduced as an interchangeability of operators and operands of an operation. Therefore, the architecture of crossbars gets an interpretation as complementarity between crossbar functionality and “buffering” translation functionality. That is, the same matter functions as operator and at once, as operand – and ...

Memristics: Memristors, Again?, Rudolf Kaehr

Rudolf Kaehr

This collection gives first and short critical reflections on the concepts of memristics, memristors and memristive systems and the history of similar movements with an own focus on a possible interplay between memory and computing functions, at once, at the same place and time, to achieve a new kind of complementarity between computation and memory on a single chip without retarding buffering conditions.


The Four-Color Theorem And Chromatic Numbers Of Graphs, Sarah E. Cates 2010 Lynchburg College

The Four-Color Theorem And Chromatic Numbers Of Graphs, Sarah E. Cates

Undergraduate Theses and Capstone Projects

We study graph colorings of the form made popular by the four-color theorem. Proved by Appel and Haken in 1976, the Four-Color Theorem states that all planar graphs can be vertex-colored with at most four colors. We consider an alternate way to prove the Four-Color Theorem, introduced by Hadwiger in 1943 and commonly know as Hadwiger’s Conjecture. In addition, we examine the chromatic number of graphs which are not planar. More specifically, we explore adding edges to a planar graph to create a non-planar graph which has the same chromatic number as the planar graph which we started from.


Towards A Formal Theory Of Interoperability, Saikou Y. Diallo 2010 Old Dominion University

Towards A Formal Theory Of Interoperability, Saikou Y. Diallo

Modeling, Simulation & Visualization Engineering Theses & Dissertations

This dissertation proposes a formal theory of interoperability that explains 1) what interoperability is as opposed to how it works, 2) how to tell whether two or more systems can interoperate and 3) how to identify whether systems are interoperating or merely exchanging bits and bytes. The research provides a formal model of data in M&S that captures all possible representations of a real or imagined thing and distinguishes between existential dependencies and transformational dependencies. Existential dependencies capture the relationships within a model while transformational dependencies capture the relationships between interactions with a model. These definitions are used to ...


Sketch Of A Typology Of Abstract Memristic Machines, Rudolf Kaehr 2010 ThinkArt Lab Glasgow

Sketch Of A Typology Of Abstract Memristic Machines, Rudolf Kaehr

Rudolf Kaehr

A typology of memristic machines is sketched. This sketch gives an overview and orientation to the paper “Towards Abstract Memristic Machines”. It also intents to propose a concise systematization of the newly introduced terms and strategies to memristics and morphogrammatics. This sketch is introducing four types of sign-use for four types of machines of fundamentally different paradigms: 1. semiotic, 2. monomorphic, 3. polymorphic and 4. bisimilar abstract machines. Further definitions of abstract machines have to be based on those graphematic notational systems. A realization of such constructions of abstract machines, in contrast to existing abstract machines of the theory of ...

From Universe To Polyverses, Rudolf Kaehr 2010 ThinkArt Lab Glasgow

From Universe To Polyverses, Rudolf Kaehr

Rudolf Kaehr

Some thoughts about the power of speculation behind important discoveries in mathematics, physics and computer science. The exercise shows that there is no need for a compulsory ultimate unifying universe. It is speculated that just this paradigm of a single ultimate universe is unmasking itself today as the main obstacle for further development in Western science and technology.

Multiscale Landform Characterization For Land Use Evaluation Using Fuzzy Sets, Andrew R. Bock 2010 University of Colorado at Boulder

Multiscale Landform Characterization For Land Use Evaluation Using Fuzzy Sets, Andrew R. Bock

Geography Graduate Theses & Dissertations

A multi-scale geomorphometric landform model was created through the use of fuzzy semantic import models and fuzzy overlay to measure distribution of landforms within parcels of the Conservation Reserve Program in a portion of the Delaware River Sub-basin in Northeast Kansas. Different fuzzy logic operators (intersect, algebraic mean, and fuzzy gamma) were used to test the impact of different model mechanisms on the resulting distributions of crisp and fuzzy membership values, and classification uncertainty measured by entropy values. Across scales (900 m2 to 16,900 m2 window sizes), only one crisp class (drainages) showed an optimal scale for detection area ...
