What is all the fuss about neural networks ? -- The new paradigm of informatics -- Virtual text and new habits of mind -- Axioms for concurrent processes -- New methods for image generation and compression -- The role of visualization in understanding data -- On the zone theorem for hyperplane arrangements -- Sorting, measures of disorder, and worst-case performance -- Object-oriented programming -- New algorithms and approaches for 1-dimensional layout compaction -- Query processing in spatial database systems -- How to find a minimum spanning tree in practice -- Current trends in distributed systems -- Object-oriented distributed artificial intelligence -- Trees — a personal view -- Supporting user testing in human-computer interaction design -- Labeled 2-structures -- Verifying and recasting secret ballots in computer networks -- Face traverses and a volume algorithm for polyhedra -- Ada — On the acceptance problems of a planned innovation -- User interface development: Problems and experiences -- Hypermedia — from the past to the future -- Let the fingers do the walking: Object manipulation in an NF2 database editor -- Smallest enclosing disks (balls and ellipsoids) -- The first computer -- Evaluating programs formed by example: An informational heuristic.
In: Springer eBooksSummary: This volume contains selected papers from the symposium "New Results and NewTrends in Computer Science" held in Graz, Austria, June 20-21, 1991. The symposium was organized to give a wide-ranging overview of new work in the field on the occasion of the fiftieth birthday of the editor of the volume. Topics covered include: information on neural nets, ideas on a new paradigm for informatics, hypermedia systems and applications, axioms for concurrent processes, techniques for image generation and compression, the role of data visualization, object-oriented programming andgraphics, algorithms for layout compaction, new methods in database systems, the future of data networks, object-oriented artificial intelligence, problems in data structures and sorting, aspects of user interfaces, a theory of structures, applications of cryptography, evaluation of Ada, results in algorithmic geometry, remarks on the history of computers, and a novel interpretation of machine learning. In total, the 26 high-level contributions authored by prominent experts from all over the world give an up-to-date survey of almost all subfields of computer science. The book is written in a style which is easy to follow, and it is of interest for any computer scientist, be it in research, teaching or practice.
