Over the past few years, I have developed an approach to the formal specification of concurrent systems that I now call the transition axiom
method. The basic formalism has already been described in  and , but the formal …
Preoccupations about the present and future evolution of MIS as a scientific field seem to be gaining popularity among researchers. The authors contend that most models used by the investigators of the MIS field have been based …

A recently published parallel thinning approach [4
] is evaluated. An improvement is suggested to enable preservation of certain diagonal lines which are not preserved by this algorithm. A unified notion of what is meant by an …
