Dependable Computing for Critical Applications 7

Front Cover
IEEE Computer Society, 1999 - Computers - 400 pages
Annotation Presenting all 20 of the conferences talks, covers assessing and coping with commercial off-the-shelf components, formal methods, distributed systems, time-triggered architecture, fault tolerance and safety, models of partitioning for integrated modular avionics, dependability evaluation, and probabilistic guarantees. A summary is also provided for a panel on certifying and assessing critical systems. Among the specific topics are building fault-tolerant hardware clocks from commercial components, improving the performance of atomic broadcast protocols using the newsmonger technique, the experimentally validating high-speed systems using physical fault injection, and evaluating dependability using a multi-criteria decision analysis procedure. No mention is made of where or when the conference was held. There is no subject index. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR.
