  • A Logic Based Implementation of Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar 

    VOGEL, CARL; VOGEL, CARL (Elsevier, 1991)
    Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG), a unification-based formal language for describing linguistic phenomena, has a declarative semantics which makes it amenable to specification as a logic program. The HPSG ...
  • Towards generic support for distributed information systems 

    CAHILL, VINNY (IEEE, 1991)
    We are concerned with providing support for a range of object oriented programming langauges to be used in multi-user, multi-machine, heterogeneous environments requiring associative access, as well as concurrency and ...
  • Supporting object oriented languages on the Comandos platform 

    CAHILL, VINNY (Commission of the European, 1991)
    The Comandos project 3 is designing and implementing a platform to support distributed persistent applications. In particular the platform supports the object oriented style of programming. An essential requirement of the ...
  • Dynamic clustering in an objectoriented distributed system. 

    CAHILL, VINNY; TANGNEY, BRENDAN (1992)
  • On object orientation as a paradigm for general purpose distributed operating systems. 

    CAHILL, VINNY; TANGNEY, BRENDAN; HARRIS, NEVILLE (ACM/IRISA/INRIA, 1992)
    In the Amadeus project we have been considering the construction of a general purpose distributed support environment for object oriented programming. In this paper we tackle a number of key areas whose interaction must ...
  • Implementing atomic objects with the RelaX transaction facility. 

    CAHILL, VINNY (1992)
    RelaX offers an extensible transaction facility which isolates distributed (thus complex) transaction processing. A distributed system providing basic support for local recovery may easily be enhanced with flexible transaction ...
  • Amadeus Installation and Maintainence Guide 

    Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Distributed Systems Group (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1992-02)
    The installation and maintainence of an Amadeus system is described.
  • C** Programmers' Guide 

    Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Distributed Systems Group (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1992-02)
    The C** extensions to C++ for distributed and persistent programming in C++ are described.
  • Overview of the Amadeus Project 

    Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Distributed Systems Group (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1992-02)
    An introduction to the Amadeus v1.0 environment for distributed and persistent programming in C++ is described.
  • Advanced Image Understanding and Autonomous Systems 

    Vernon, David (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1992-03)
    The ultimate goal of most image understanding systems is to produce an unambiguous 3-D representation of the local visual environment. This representation can then be employed by robotic systems to effect some meaningful ...
  • Conceptual Scoffolding: A Spatially-founded Meaning Representation for Metaphor Comprehension 

    Veale, Tony; Keane, Mark T. (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1992-04)
    Once viewed as a rhetorical and superficial language phenomenon, metaphor is now recognized to serve a fundamental role in our conceptual structuring and language comprehension processes. In particular, it is argued that ...
  • Limitations of Scientific Ontology 

    Vernon, David; Furlong, Dermot (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1992-04)
    Artificial life is a new multi-disciplinary science which is emerging from established practices in artificial intelligence, computational biology, and cybernetics. It is argued in this paper that conventional scientific ...
  • An Object-Oriented Approach for Replication Management 

    Gourhant, Yvon (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1992-04-22)
  • Automatic Detection of Secondary Creases in Fingerprints 

    Vernon, David (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1992-09)
    Human fingerprints comprise a series of whorls or ridges. In some special cases, these whorls are broken by so-called 'secondary creases': co-linear breaks across a sequence of adjacent ridges. A technique to automatically ...
  • Retrieval Issues in Real-World CBR Applications How far can we go with discrimination-nets? 

    Cunningham, Padraig; Smyth, Barry; Finn, Donal; Cahill, Eamonn (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1992-10)
    In this paper we present a proposition and ponder a question. We propose that a useful perspective on analogical reasoning and CBR is to consider them on a continuum of abstraction of remindings. This is an alternative ...
  • EuroBridge methodology for telecommunications service specification 

    O'MAHONY, DONAL EDWARD (IEEE, 1993)
    In designing and specifying a system that will be used to provide telecommunications services to a user population, it is important to identify all major actors involved, and their individual concerns at an early ...
  • Eiffel**: An implementation of Effel 

    CAHILL, VINNY (Prentice Hall, 1993)
    Eiffel is an implementation of Eiffel which provides support for distribution, persistence, concurrency and transactions. All objects in an Eiffel system are global (i.e. accessible from nodes other than that at which they ...
  • Sharing objects in a distributed system. 

    CAHILL, VINNY (IEEE Computer Society Press, 1993)
    This paper presents a design for the use of DSM techniques and system-supported synchronisation to support shared access to persistent objects in a distributed environment. We adopt a hybrid approach where the system ...
