accuracies and various technical problems, and are therefore not suitable for practical applications . Proposed biochemical methods, such as those based on the accumulation of D-aspartic acid, involve the destructive analysis of specific body parts (such as bones, teeth and ligaments), and suffer from technical issues and bio-degradation . In the… (More)
INTRODUCTION Speaker identification by lay witnesses is an area that is still relatively unexplored. The volume of empirical research in this field contrasts sharply and unfavourably with the wealth of work reported in the literature on human identification in the visual domain. Nor is it clear that the findings of eyewitness research are sufficiently well… (More)
Two main scenarios are studied. In both scenarios point-to-point links play an essential role. In this note it is assumed that these links are the 40 MByte/s links of the ADSP-21060 SHARC processor. However, similar scenarios will apply for other types of hardware with point-to-point links with sufficient bandwidth. In the first scenario 4 or 6 ADSP-21060… (More)
Discrete event simulation is applied for determining the computing and networking resources needed for the ATLAS second level trigger. This paper discusses the techniques used and some of the results obtained so far for well defined laboratory configurations and for the full system.
