Beyond ∖newcommand with xparse

  
TUGboat, Vol. 31, No. 1. (2010), pp. 80-83

Abstract

[Excerpt: Introduction] The LATEX 2ε \newcommand macro is most LATEX users’ first choice for creating macros. As well as the ‘sanity checks’ it carries out, the ability to define macros with an optional argument is very useful. However, to go beyond using a single optional argument, or to create more complex input syntaxes, LATEX 2ε users have to do things ‘by hand’ using \def or load one of the packages which extend \newcommand (for example twoopt (Oberdiek, 2008)). [\n] As part of the ...

 

The importance of being modular

  
Science, Vol. 357, No. 6347. (14 July 2017), pp. 128-129, https://doi.org/10.1126/science.aan8075

Abstract

In the 1970s, ecologists began to speculate that modular systems—which are organized into blocks or modules—can better contain perturbations and are therefore more resilient against external damage. This simple concept can be applied to any networked system, be it an ecosystem, cellular metabolism, traffic flows, human disease contagion, a power grid, or an economy. However, experimental evidence has been lacking. On page 199 of this issue, Gilarranz et al. provide empirical evidence showing that modular networked systems do indeed have an ...

 

Effects of network modularity on the spread of perturbation impact in experimental metapopulations

  
Science, Vol. 357, No. 6347. (14 July 2017), pp. 199-201, https://doi.org/10.1126/science.aal4122

Abstract

[Modularity limits disturbance effects] The networks that form natural, social, and technological systems are vulnerable to the spreading impacts of perturbations. Theory predicts that networks with a clustered or modular structure—where nodes within a module interact more frequently than they do with nodes in other modules—might contain a perturbation, preventing it from spreading to the entire network. Gilarranz et al. conducted experiments with networked populations of springtail (Folsomia candida) microarthropods to show that modularity limits the impact of a local extinction on ...

 

Evolution of a modular software network

  
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 108, No. 50. (13 December 2011), pp. 19985-19989, https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1115960108

Abstract

“Evolution behaves like a tinkerer” (François Jacob, Science, 1977). Software systems provide a singular opportunity to understand biological processes using concepts from network theory. The Debian GNU/Linux operating system allows us to explore the evolution of a complex network in a unique way. The modular design detected during its growth is based on the reuse of existing code in order to minimize costs during programming. The increase of modularity experienced by the system over time has not counterbalanced the increase in ...

On the role of scientific thought

  
In Selected Writings on Computing: A personal Perspective (1982), pp. 60-66, https://doi.org/10.1007/978-1-4612-5695-3_12

Abstract

Essentially, this essay contains nothing new; on the contrary, its subject matter is so old that sometimes it seems forgotten. It is written in an effort to undo some of the more common misunderstandings that I encounter (nearly daily) in my professional world of computing scientists, programmers, computer users and computer designers, and even colleagues engaged in educational politics. The decision to write this essay now was taken because I suddenly realized that my confrontation with this same pattern of misunderstanding ...

 

Behavioural contracts for a sound assembly of components

  
Lecture Notes in Computer Science In Formal Techniques for Networked and Distributed Systems - FORTE 2003, Vol. 2767 (2003), pp. 111-126, https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-540-39979-7_8

Abstract

Component based design is a new methodology for the construction of distributed systems and applications. In this new setting, a system is built by the assembly of (pre)-existing components. Remains the problem of the compositional verification of such systems. We investigate methods and concepts for the provision of “sound” assemblies. We define an abstract, dynamic, multi-threaded, component model, encompassing both client/server and peer to peer communication patterns. We define a behavioural interface type language endowed with a (decidable) set of interface ...

 

An a posteriori measure of network modularity

  

Abstract

Measuring modularity is important to understand the structure of networks, and has an important number of real-world implications. However, several measures exists to assess the modularity, and give both different modularity values and different modules composition. In this article, I propose an a posteriori measure of modularity, which represents the ratio of interactions between members of the same modules vs. members of different modules. I apply this measure to a large dataset of 290 ecological networks, to show that it gives ...

 

Reverse Engineering of Biological Complexity

  
Science, Vol. 295, No. 5560. (01 March 2002), pp. 1664-1669, https://doi.org/10.1126/science.1069981

Abstract

Advanced technologies and biology have extremely different physical implementations, but they are far more alike in systems-level organization than is widely appreciated. Convergent evolution in both domains produces modular architectures that are composed of elaborate hierarchies of protocols and layers of feedback regulation, are driven by demand for robustness to uncertain environments, and use often imprecise components. This complexity may be largely hidden in idealized laboratory settings and in normal operation, becoming conspicuous only when contributing to rare cascading failures. These ...

 

When systems engineering fails-toward complex systems engineering

  
Systems, Man and Cybernetics, 2003. IEEE International Conference on In Systems, Man and Cybernetics, 2003. IEEE International Conference on, Vol. 2 (October 2003), pp. 2021-2028 vol.2, https://doi.org/10.1109/icsmc.2003.1244709

Abstract

We review the lessons learned from problems with systems engineering over the past couple of decades and suggest that there are two effective strategies for overcoming them: (1) restricting the conventional systems engineering process to not-too-complex projects, and (2) adopting an evolutionary paradigm for complex systems engineering that involves rapid parallel exploration and a context designed to promote change through competition between design/implementation groups with field testing of multiple variants. The second approach is an extension of many of the increasingly ...
