In this paper, we introduce a novel pictorial approach for solving problems in n-dimensional Euclidean spaces called the n-dimensional projective approach. The pro-jective approach is based on a hierarchical and modular architecture, where its ground module is rooted on geometrical concepts. The result is an effective and consistent spatial approach able to(More)
Our Mathematical Programming Modulo Theories (MPMT) constraint solving framework extends Mathematical Programming technology with techniques from the field of Automated Reasoning, e.g., solvers for first-order theories. In previous work, we used MPMT to synthesize system architectures for Boeing's Dreamliner and we studied the theoretical aspects of MPMT by(More)
Over the recent years, several smart applications like RFID " s, sensor networks, including industrial systems, critical infrastructures, private and public spaces as well as portable and wearable applications in which highly constrained devices are interconnected, typically communicating wirelessly with one another, working in concert to accomplish some(More)
Canarian Black (CB) pigs belong to an autochthonous and endangered breed, which is spread throughout the Canarian archipelago. It is commonly accepted that they represent a relic of the pig populations that were bred by the Berbers in North Africa over millennia. It is important to note that the geographic isolation of the Canary Islands has preserved this(More)
We consider some issues concerning the role of Formal Logic in Software Engineering education, which lead us to promote the learning of formal proof through extensive, appropriately guided practice. To this end, we propose to adopt Natural Deduction as proof system and to make use of an adequate proof assistant to carry out formal proof on machine. We(More)
