While the views expressed in the paper below conflict violently with my own ~, they represent a substantial amount of constructive thinking and planning based upon solid experience in development of techniques for use in an IAL/ALGOL language compiler. I feel, therefore, that they should be published for your scrutiny and that Mr. Bemer's work deserves your careful consideration. This essay deals with single characters rather than with their first-order groupings into words, which had been… 

Figures from this paper

Covariance‐free non‐homogeneity STAP detector in compound Gaussian clutter based on robust statistics
TLDR
The proposed non-homogeneity detector, which is based on the projection depth function from the field of robust statistics, features a non-parametric and covariance-free test statistic, which makes it particularly attractive for real-time applications.
On the sample-mean method for computing hyper-volumes
TLDR
A simple geometric Monte Carlo method is developed, known also as the sample-mean method, which transforms the domain to an equivalent hyper-sphere with the same volume, to generate and compute the volumes of low-dimensional stability domains in parameter space.
The Impact of Mental Representations on ICT-Related Overload in the Use of Mobile Phones
TLDR
This study presents and provides significant empirical support for an expanded cognitive perspective of ICT-related overload, which views individuals’ information-processing capabilities as being reliant on differences in mental representations associated with cultural, demographic, and experiential factors.
Protofold II: Enhanced Model and Implementation for Kinetostatic Protein Folding
TLDR
This article improves the free energy formulation used in Protofold by including the typically underrated entropic effects, imparted due to differences in hydrophobicity of the chemical groups, which dominate the folding of most water-soluble proteins.
Reciprocal Materiality And The Body Of Code
Abstract Materiality has often been a neglected factor in discussions of digitally encoded information. While a lot of early works in media studies suffered from this shortcoming, questions regarding
State of the art and challenges in bioprinting technologies, contribution of the 3D bioprinting in Tissue Engineering
TLDR
In the attempt to recreate the research in this area, a bioprinter was built with good resolution and precision for bioprinting testing, built from ground up, with a simple design and with low cost materials, without compromising its capability.
Analysis and modeling of mitotic spindle orientations in three dimensions
TLDR
It is found that 3D analysis leads to systematically different results from 2D analysis and, surprisingly, truly random spindle orientations do not result in equal numbers of horizontal and vertical orientations.
Lernplattformen entwickeln sich rasend langsam
Sieht man von historischen, netzbasierten Autorensystemen wie TICCIT und PLATO (Nievergelt, 1975) ab, so existieren Lernplattformen seit etwa zehn Jahren. Ihre derzeitige Nutzung an Schweizer Schulen
