However, the assumption of Gaussian distributions of critical path delays has been made in this formulation, which becomes inapplicable for next generation nanometer technologies. Recently, a generalization of the formulation for non-Gaussian distributions was proposed, and a modification of Lawler's algorithm was developed for solving this generalized problem....   [tags: algorithms]

Stopping the Clock: An Argument for the End of Age and Trash Discrimination

- Trash and aging go hand in hand. Take for example a pair of shoes. When a person uses a pair of shoes consistently, the soles will begin to wear down and holes begin to form. A person may repair the sole and patch up the holes, but eventually there comes a time when the well-worn shoe is beyond repair and it is time to chuck them in the trash bin. Trash is made up of things that have aged to the point of uselessness; things that have become undesired and worthless. A person can easily tell when an item is no longer of use to them, but controversy ensues when a person attempts to determine when a human being begins to lose their usefulness....   [tags: aging, trash, relationships, elderly]

The Importance Of A Library As A Important Factor For Academic Students

- A college library is one of the important places where many students study, research, and gather. The reasons why using a library is considered as a good way to study and research are because the internet information is often limited and not always reliable. The reliability is also an important factor for academic students, and to use a reliable source can save a lot of time because students do not have to worry about their sources. According to a 2005 study of the Illinois School Libraries, students who frequently visit well-stocked and well-staffed school libraries end up with higher ACT scores and perform better on reading and writing exams....   [tags: Library, Academia, 12-hour clock, 24-hour clock]

How The Watch Industry Can Save Itself

- There’s much being made about the seemingly swift decline in Swiss watch sales. CultOfMac, as is their wont, is pointing to Apple Watch sales while still others are moaning about millennials who refuse to buy a $6,000 James Bond watch. So what’s really happening. Watch exports fell 8.5 percent in the last three months, partially due to a slowdown in Asian luxury sales as well as a surge in the price of the Swiss franc. But the primary slowdown seems to be in the low end – meaning the $200-$500 mark – even as Switzerland is trying desperately to convince younger people that a $6,000 watch is a great deal....   [tags: Seiko, Watch, Switzerland, Clock]
