This paper presents a prototype system that executes a set of periodic real-time tasks utilizing dynamic hardware reconfiguration. The proposed scheduling technique, MSDL, is not only able to give an offline guarantee for the feasibility of the task set but also minimizes the number of device configurations. After describing this technique, we extend the(More)
Lewis [L1] invented signaling games to show that semantic meaning conventions can arise simply from regularities in communicative behavior. The behavioral implementation of such conventions are so-called signaling systems. Previous research addressed the emergence of signaling systems by combining signaling games with learning dynamics, and not uncommonly(More)
In this study we present a game-theoretic model of guilt in relation to sensitivity to norms of fairness. We focus on a specific kind of fairness norm à la Rawls according to which a fair society should be organized so as to admit economic inequalities to the extent that they are beneficial to the less advantaged agents. We analyze the impact of the(More)
To depict the mechanisms that have enabled the emergence of semantic meaning, philosophers and researchers particularly access a game-theoretic model: the signaling game. In this article I will argue that this model is also quite appropriate to analyze not only the emergence of semantic meaning, but also semantic change. In other words, signaling games(More)
A prototype system that executes a set of periodic real-time tasks utilising dynamic hardware reconfiguration is presented. The proposed scheduling technique, merge server distribute load (MSDL), is not only able to give an offline guarantee for the feasibility of the task set, but also minimises the number of device configurations. After describing this(More)
