Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: In den letzten 20 Jahren haben der Computer und das Internet das Fernsehen als Leitmedium der Gesellschaft abgelöst und bemerkenswerte Veränderungen der medienbenutzenden Kultur bewirkt. Der Computer als „avancierte Kommunikationstechnologie“ prägt heute die „leib- und kontextgebundenen Modi des Alltagswissens, die Menschen dazu befähigen, sich eine Welt des Handelns zu erschließen“, auf bislang noch nicht dagewesene Weise. Seine „ausgiebige Nutzung ist Teil des gewöhnlichen Lebens mit all seinen unbefragten Selbstverständlichkeiten und Routinehandlungen geworden“. So bedingte die Entwicklung und globale Vernetzung der Computersysteme, dass durch das Internet und die Virtual Reality „räumliche Nähe als Bedingung für personelle Kommunikation aufgehoben“ und „weltweite Kommunikationen die ebenso interaktiv sind wie Gespräche“, ermöglicht wurden. „Das Internet vereinigt Einkaufszentrum, Radio, Film, Fernsehen, Fax und andere Medien“. Es gibt kaum noch Informationen und Medieninhalte, die man nicht auch im verzweigten Netzwerk des Internet finden könnte. Die Gemeinschaft der Internetnutzer erstreckt sich über die ganze Welt und hat ihr Medien-Konsumverhalten an die Strukturen des Netzes angeglichen. Durch Hyperlinks geleitet, die jegliche Seiten und Inhalte im Netz mit thematisch ähnlichen Inhalten verbinden können, navigiert der User durch den Cyberspace und gestaltet sein eigenes Programm, seinen Vorlieben folgend. Seit einigen Jahren deutet sich durch die Vermehrung mobiler, internetfähiger Computersysteme eine Weiterentwicklung dieser Leitmedien an. Die Mobilisierung der Computer ermöglicht neue Medienkanäle, Phänomene und Anwendungen, sowie die, in der Medienwahrnehmung bislang recht unbeachteten Augmented und Mixed Reality. Durch dieses Phänomen können, wie durch die Leitmedien Computer und Internet, nahezu alle älteren Medienformen vereinigt werden, dies jedoch in neuer Umgebung. Durch die Augmented Reality werden die Funktionsweisen des Desktops der Computer und der Hyperlinks des Internets, aus dem herkömmlichen Rezeptionskontext der stationären Benutzung in den eigenen vier Wänden in die Außen- bzw. Umwelt verlagert. Die Entwicklung des mobilen Computings und die dadurch ermöglichte Augmented Reality könnten möglicherweise den Computer und das Internet als Leitmedien ablösen. Diese Arbeit soll das Phänomen der Augmented Reality in die Medienwissenschaft einführen und einen Überblick über die durch ihr [...]

Inclusion of Pattern Languages and Related Problems

Author: Dominik Freydenberger
Publisher: Logos Verlag Berlin GmbH
ISBN: 9783832530716
Release Date: 2012
Genre:

A pattern is a word that consists of variables and terminal symbols. The pattern language that is generated by a pattern A is the set of all terminal words that can be obtained from A by uniform replacement of variables with terminal words. For example, the pattern A = xaxa (where x is a variable, and a is a terminal symbol) generates the set of all squares that end on a. Due to their simple definition, pattern languages have various connections to a wide range of other areas in computer science and mathematics. On the other hand, many of the canonical questions are surprisingly difficult for pattern languages. The present thesis discusses various aspects of the inclusion problem of pattern languages. It can be divided in two parts. The first one examines the decidability of the inclusion problem under various restrictions, and the related question of minimizability of regular expressions with repetition operators. The second part deals with descriptive patterns, the smallest generalizations of arbitrary languages through pattern languages ("smallest" with respect to the inclusion relation). Main topics are the existence and the discoverability of descriptive patterns.

The Internet of Products

Author: Robert Neumann
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9783658009052
Release Date: 2012-11-27
Genre: Computers

​This study approaches the difficult problem of providing Internet users with a completely transparent view on electronic markets from a product information accessibility point of view. Robert Neumann analyzes economic, ecological, and societal gains of openly accessible product information in the form of theoretical models. Though many aspects of very different research disciplines have to be investigated to gain a holistic view on the Internet of Products, this thesis reduces the range of involved research topics to product information discoverability related questions.

Genre: Business & Economics

We are pleased to present the proceedings of the First International Conf- ence on Software LanguageEngineering (SLE 2008). The conference was held in th Toulouse, FranceduringSeptember29-30,2008andwasco-locatedwiththe11 IEEE/ACM International Conference on Model-Driven Engineering Languages and Systems (MODELS 2008). The SLE conference series is devoted to a wide range of topics related to arti?cial languages in software engineering. SLE is an international research forum that brings together researchers and practitioners from both industry and academia to expand the frontiers of software language engineering. Historically, SLE emerged from two established workshop series: LDTA, Language Descriptions, Tools, and Applications, which has been a sat- lite event at ETAPS for the last 9 years, and ATEM which has been co-located with MODELS and WCRE for 5 years. SLE'sforemostmissionis to encourageand organizecommunicationbetween communities that have traditionally looked at software languagesfrom di?erent, more specialized, and yet complementary perspectives. SLE emphasizes the f- damental notion of languages as opposed to any realization in speci?c technical spaces. In this context, the term "software language" comprises all sorts of - ti?cial languages used in software development including general-purpose p- gramming languages, domain-speci?c languages, modeling and meta-modeling languages, data models, and ontologies. Software language engineering is the application of a systematic, disciplined, quanti?able approach to the devel- ment, use, andmaintenanceoftheselanguages. TheSLEconferenceisconcerned with all phases of the lifecycle of software languages; these include the design, implementation, documentation, testing, deployment, evolution, recovery, and retirement of languages.

Applied Software Architecture

Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional
ISBN: 0201325713
Release Date: 2000
Genre: Computers

"Designing a large software system is an extremely complicated undertaking that requires juggling differing perspectives and differing goals, and evaluating differing options. "Applied Software Architecture" is the best book yet that gives guidance as to how to sort out and organize the conflicting pressures and produce a successful design." -- Len Bass, author of "Software Architecture in Practice." Quality software architecture design has always been important, but in today's fast-paced, rapidly changing, and complex development environment, it is essential. A solid, well-thought-out design helps to manage complexity, to resolve trade-offs among conflicting requirements, and, in general, to bring quality software to market in a more timely fashion. "Applied Software Architecture" provides practical guidelines and techniques for producing quality software designs. It gives an overview of software architecture basics and a detailed guide to architecture design tasks, focusing on four fundamental views of architecture--conceptual, module, execution, and code. Through four real-life case studies, this book reveals the insights and best practices of the most skilled software architects in designing software architecture. These case studies, written with the masters who created them, demonstrate how the book's concepts and techniques are embodied in state-of-the-art architecture design. You will learn how to: create designs flexible enough to incorporate tomorrow's technology; use architecture as the basis for meeting performance, modifiability, reliability, and safety requirements; determine priorities among conflicting requirements and arrive at a successful solution; and use software architecture to help integrate system components. Anyone involved in software architecture will find this book a valuable compendium of best practices and an insightful look at the critical role of architecture in software development. 0201325713B07092001
