Algorithmic (KCS) complexity results can be interpreted as indicating some limits to software estimation. While these limits are abstract they nevertheless contradict enthusiastic claims occasionally made by commercial software estimation advocates. Specifically , if it is accepted that algorithmic complexity is an appropriate definition of the complexity(More)
Many deaths among patients treated in intensive care units (ICUs) occur following the withdrawal or withholding of life support. Following limitation of life support, most of these patients die in the ICU or ward after the decision to limit life support is made, although some may survive to hospital discharge.

Engineering has been defined as the solution of practical problems using mathematical and scientific principles. Is it possible to apply mathematical and scientific principles to the solution of important problems in software engineering, such as the prediction of development schedules and the assessment of productivity and quality? The debate over this(More)
Geospatial information of many kinds, from topographic maps to scientific data, is increasingly being made available through web mapping services. These allow georeferenced map images to be served from data stores and displayed in websites and geographic information systems, where they can be integrated with other geographic information. The Open Geospatial(More)
