We present a software architecture and framework that can be used to facilitate the development of data processing applications for High Energy Physics experiments. The development strategy follows an architecture-centric approach as a way of creating a resilient software framework that can withstand changes in requirements and technology over the long(More)
We present the strategy that has been adopted for the development of the software system for the LHCb experiment. This strategy follows an architecture-centric approach as a way of creating a resilient software framework that can withstand changes in requirements and technology. The software architecture, called GAUDI, covers event data processing(More)
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) needs to rehabilitate or reconstruct much of its network of urban freeway pavements. A strategy has been developed by the Caltrans Accelerate Pavement Testing (CAL/APT) program to reconstruct these pavements with a flexible pavement incorporating design features that minimize the thickness of the(More)
The fungal endophyte Haloguignardia irritans induces gall formation on the brown algal genera Cystoseira and Halidrys occurring from Oregon to Baja California, Mexico. Here we examine genetic covariation and compare rDNA phylogenies to investigate the coevolutionary histories of H. irritans and its algal hosts. Despite recognition of H. irritans as a single(More)
Several numerical approaches have been proposed in the literature to simulate the behavior of modern blast furnaces: finite volume methods, data-mining models, heat and mass balance models, and classical thermodynamic simulations. Despite this, there is actually no efficient method for evaluating quickly optimal operating parameters of a blast furnace as a(More)
A multimedia framework and model are employed, to embrace the interactive and visual presentation of a series of case-studies with large conventional (static), and multi-mode (dynamic) data sets. This identifies multifaceted presentation requirements. Graphs are utilised to enable rigorous multimedia system (MMS) design, effortless updates and unproblematic(More)
