Evolutionary computation uses mechanisms derived from natural evolution to solve problems or generate designs. This book concentrates on evolutionary computation in creative areas such as art, music, and design. It shows how human interaction, new representations , and open-ended evolution can extend the capabilities of evolutionary computation. An(More)

As the next step towards generating a synthetic biology from artificial genetic information systems, we have examined variants of HIV reverse transcriptase (RT) for their ability to synthesize duplex DNA incorporating the non-standard base pair between 2,4-diaminopyrimidine (pyDAD), a pyrimidine presenting a hydrogen bond 'donor-acceptor-donor' pattern to(More)
O ptimizing Compilers for Modern Architectures: A Dependence-Based Approach, Randy Allen and Ken Kennedy. Although modern computer architectures designed with high-speed microprocessors offer potential performance gains, their complexity makes it increasingly difficult to produce efficient code. The authors assert that compilers can play a vital role in(More)
Met ne of the most challenging tasks in software system design is to assure reliability, especially as these systems are increasingly used 0 in sensitive and often life-critical environments such as medical systems, air traffic control, and space applications. It is therefore essential for developers to employ those methods that offer a high degree of(More)
In the fall of 1996, RIT admitted the first students to a new undergraduate program in software engineering. Our goal in creating the program was to provide for the education of a new type of engineer: the software engineer. This paper presents the rationale for developing such a program, the process we followed in its design, and an outline of the(More)
