Erlang Programming

This book is an in-depth introduction to Erlang, a programming language ideal for any situation where concurrency, fault tolerance, and fast response is essential. Erlang is gaining widespread adoption with the advent of multi-core processors and their new scalable approach to concurrency. With this guide you'll learn how to write complex concurrent programs in Erlang, regardless of your programming background or experience. Written by leaders of the international Erlang community -- and based on their training material -- Erlang Programming focuses on the language's syntax and semantics, and explains pattern matching, proper lists, recursion, debugging, networking, and concurrency. This book helps you: Understand the strengths of Erlang and why its designers included specific features Learn the concepts behind concurrency and Erlang's way of handling it Write efficient Erlang programs while keeping code neat and readable Discover how Erlang fills the requirements for distributed systems Add simple graphical user interfaces with little effort Learn Erlang's tracing mechanisms for debugging concurrent and distributed systems Use the built-in Mnesia database and other table storage features Erlang Programming provides exercises at the end of each chapter and simple examples throughout the book.

Implementations of Logic Programming Systems

This volume is a collection of research papers in the area of the implementation of logic programming systems. It will be of immediate interest to practitioners who seek an understanding of how to efficiently manage memory, generate fast code, perform sophisticated static analyses, and design high-performance runtime features. A major theme throughout the book is how to effectively leverage host implementation systems and technologies to implement target systems. The book is also beneficial for future reference because it summarizes a wealth of systems implementation experience of the researchers shaping the field over the past ten years. Another theme of the book is compilation techniques to boost performance. The field of static analysis for logic programs is a rapidly developing field that deserves a volume on its own. Implementations of Logic Programming Systems is an excellent reference and may be used as a text for a course on the subject.

Introducing Erlang

If you’re new to Erlang, its functional style can seem difficult, but with help from this hands-on introduction, you’ll scale the learning curve and discover how enjoyable, powerful, and fun this language can be. Author Simon St. Laurent shows you how to write simple Erlang programs by teaching you one basic skill at a time. You’ll learn about pattern matching, recursion, message passing, process-oriented programming, and establishing pathways for data rather than telling it where to go. By the end of your journey, you’ll understand why Erlang is ideal for concurrency and resilience. Get cozy with Erlang’s shell, its command line interface Become familiar with Erlang’s basic structures by working with numbers Discover atoms, pattern matching, and guards: the foundations of your program structure Delve into the heart of Erlang processing with recursion, strings, lists, and higher-order functions Create processes, send messages among them, and apply pattern matching to incoming messages Store and manipulate structured data with Erlang Term Storage and the Mnesia database Learn about Open Telecom Platform, Erlang’s open source libraries and tools

Concepts Techniques and Models of Computer Programming

5.7.2 Introduction to Erlang programming To give a taste of Erlang , we give some small Erlang programs and show how to do the same thing in the book's computation models . The programs are mostly taken from the Erlang book [ 10 ] .

Concepts  Techniques  and Models of Computer Programming

Teaching the science and the technology of programming as a unified discipline that shows the deep relationships between programming paradigms. This innovative text presents computer programming as a unified discipline in a way that is both practical and scientifically sound. The book focuses on techniques of lasting value and explains them precisely in terms of a simple abstract machine. The book presents all major programming paradigms in a uniform framework that shows their deep relationships and how and where to use them together. After an introduction to programming concepts, the book presents both well-known and lesser-known computation models ("programming paradigms"). Each model has its own set of techniques and each is included on the basis of its usefulness in practice. The general models include declarative programming, declarative concurrency, message-passing concurrency, explicit state, object-oriented programming, shared-state concurrency, and relational programming. Specialized models include graphical user interface programming, distributed programming, and constraint programming. Each model is based on its kernel language—a simple core language that consists of a small number of programmer-significant elements. The kernel languages are introduced progressively, adding concepts one by one, thus showing the deep relationships between different models. The kernel languages are defined precisely in terms of a simple abstract machine. Because a wide variety of languages and programming paradigms can be modeled by a small set of closely related kernel languages, this approach allows programmer and student to grasp the underlying unity of programming. The book has many program fragments and exercises, all of which can be run on the Mozart Programming System, an Open Source software package that features an interactive incremental development environment.

Model Checking and Artificial Intelligence

Communication is done via UDP/IP sockets, enabling players to be written in any programming language that supports UDP communication. Erlang [1] is a programming language developed at Ericsson for implementing telecommunication systems.

Model Checking and Artificial Intelligence

Model checking is a branch of software and hardware veri?cation that involves developingalgorithmsfortheautomaticveri?cationofsystems.Originatingfrom mathematical logic, “model checking” stands for the process of determining whether or not a formula of some logic is satis?ed by a model for the logic. Initiated two and a half decades ago, with papers that have gained their authors the 2007 Turing award, this active research area has resulted in rich theory, and the developmentof a number ofwidely used model-checkingtools.Theseinclude Carnegie-Mellon's SMV, Cadence-SMV, and Bell Laboratories' SPIN. Some of the main activities in model checking involve development of expressive spec- cation formalisms, in particular, temporal logics, the modeling of systems, and ?nding e?cient algorithms for automatically checking that a model of a system satis?es its temporal speci?cation. The success of model checking in the computer-aided veri?cation com- nity has led to a growth of interest in the use of model checking in AI. One common interest between these two ?elds is veri?cation of autonomous s- tems. Logics for autonomous systems can express properties that are not c- monly used for reactive systems, expressing properties related to the knowledge and belief of components (agents) of the system about other components. New model-checkingalgorithms,for suchspeci?cation properties,are challengingand useful for various applications, including online auction mechanisms, which are embedded in various Internet services, and autonomous robots.

Some of the tools we do not cover are described in Erlang Programming (O'Reilly), and those that aren't are covered by the set of reference manual pages and the user's guide that comes as part of the standard Erlang/OTP documentation.

Designing for Scalability with Erlang OTP

If you need to build a scalable, fault tolerant system with requirements for high availability, discover why the Erlang/OTP platform stands out for the breadth, depth, and consistency of its features. This hands-on guide demonstrates how to use the Erlang programming language and its OTP framework of reusable libraries, tools, and design principles to develop complex commercial-grade systems that simply cannot fail. In the first part of the book, you’ll learn how to design and implement process behaviors and supervision trees with Erlang/OTP, and bundle them into standalone nodes. The second part addresses reliability, scalability, and high availability in your overall system design. If you’re familiar with Erlang, this book will help you understand the design choices and trade-offs necessary to keep your system running. Explore OTP’s building blocks: the Erlang language, tools and libraries collection, and its abstract principles and design rules Dive into the fundamentals of OTP reusable frameworks: the Erlang process structures OTP uses for behaviors Understand how OTP behaviors support client-server structures, finite state machine patterns, event handling, and runtime/code integration Write your own behaviors and special processes Use OTP’s tools, techniques, and architectures to handle deployment, monitoring, and operations

Computer Aided Systems Theory   EUROCAST 2009

The concept of CAST as Computer Aided Systems Theory was introduced by F. Pichler in the late 1980s to refer to computer theoretical and practical developments as tools for solving problems in system science. It was thought of as the third component (the other two being CAD and CAM) required to complete the path from computer and systems sciences to practical developments in science and engineering. Franz Pichler, of the University of Linz, organized the first CAST workshop in April 1988, which demonstrated the acceptance of the concepts by the scientific and technical community. Next, the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria joined the University of Linz to organize the first international meeting on CAST (Las Palmas, February 1989) under the name EUROCAST'89. This proved to be a very successful gathering of systems theorists, computer scientists and engineers from most European countries, North America and Japan. It was agreed that EUROCAST international conferences would be organized every two years, alternating between Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and a continental European location. From 2001 the conference has been held exclusively in Las Palmas. Thus, successive EUROCAST meetings took place in Krems (1991), Las Palmas (1993), In- bruck (1995), Las Palmas (1997), Vienna (1999), Las Palmas (2001), Las Palmas (2003) Las Palmas (2005) and Las Palmas (2007), in addition to an extra-European CAST c- ference in Ottawa in 1994.
