Executions of concurrent multi-step transactions interleave steps in ways that improve the throughput of the particular transactions processing system. In this paper, we use temporal logic to specify and verify formally the correctness of local and mobile transactions executing concurrently on a mobile database. The correctness condition is that of(More)
In mobile environments, unspecified numbers of transactions arrive in continuous streams. To prove correctness of their concurrent execution a method of modelling an infinite number of transactions is needed. Standard database techniques model fixed finite schedules of transactions. Lately, techniques based on temporal logic have been proposed as suitable(More)
Existing work in temporal logic on representing the execution of infinitely many transactions, uses linear-time temporal logic (LTL) and only models two-step transactions. In this paper, we use the comparatively efficient branching-time computational tree logic CTL and extend the transaction model to a class of multistep transactions, by introducing(More)
Although meta-heuristic optimization algorithms have been used to solve many optimization problems, they still suffer from two main difficulties: What are the best parameters for a particular problem? How do we escape from the local optima? In this paper, a new, efficient meta-heuristic optimization algorithm inspired by wild dog packs is proposed. The main(More)
Most real world systems express themselves formally as a set of nonlinear algebraic equations. As applications grow, the size and complexity of these equations also increase. In this work, we highlight the key concepts in using the homotopy analysis method as a methodology used to construct efficient iteration formulas for nonlinear equations solving. The(More)
