Many Aspects of Defect Theorems
 Theor. Comput. Sci
"... We give a survey and a unified presentation of the defect theorem, its generalizations and recent aspects of interest. In its basic form the defect theorem states that if a set of n words satisfies a nontrivial relation, then these words can be expressed simultaneously as products of at most n 1 wor ..."

The English Noun Phrase in its Sentential Aspect
 PH.D. DISSERTATION MIT
, 1987
"... This dissertation is a defense of the hypothesis that the noun phrase is headed by a functional element (i.e., "nonlexical" category) D, identified with the determiner. In this way, the structure of the noun phrase parallels that of the sentence, which is headed by Infl(ection), under ass ..."

Abstract. Pronto[19] is a middleware system for mobile applications with JMS messaging as a basis in both centralized and decentralized forms. Asynchronous messaging is essential to support reliable communication with mobile devices. An intelligent gateway and smart caching in Pronto support the construction of distributed messaging systems over JMS servers. The main aim of Pronto is to support a reliable and efficient message flow from data source to consumers by applying and comparing different techniques. Pronto provides a solution for mobile application specific problems such as resource constraints, network characteristics, and data optimization, which achieves high reliability in endtoend communication. 1
CostAware WWW Proxy Caching Algorithms
 IN PROCEEDINGS OF THE 1997 USENIX SYMPOSIUM ON INTERNET TECHNOLOGY AND SYSTEMS
, 1997
"... Web caches can not only reduce network traffic and downloading latency, but can also affect the distribution of web traffic over the network through costaware caching. This paper introduces GreedyDualSize, which incorporates locality with cost and size concerns in a simple and nonparameterized fash ..."

Tracedriven simulations show that with the appropriate cost definition, GreedyDualSize outperforms existing web cache replacement algorithms in many aspects, including hit ratios, latency reduction and network cost reduction. In addition, GreedyDualSize can potentially

A distributed, developmental model of word recognition and naming
 PSYCHOLOGICAL REVIEW
, 1989
"... A parallel distributed processing model of visual word recognition and pronunciation is described. The model consists of sets of orthographic and phonological units and an interlevel of hidden units. Weights on connections between units were modified during a training phase using the backpropagatio ..."

The model simulates many aspects of human performance, including (a) differences between words in terms of processing difficulty, (b) pronunciation of novel items, (c) differences between readers in terms of word recognition skill, (d) transitions from beginning to skilled reading
PseudoRandom Generation from OneWay Functions

A wide variety of topics in pure and applied mathematics involve the problem of counting the number of lattice points inside a convex bounded polyhedron, for short called a polytope. Applications range from the very pure (number theory, toric Hilbert functions, Kostant’s partition function in representation theory) to the most applied (cryptography, integer programming, contingency tables). This paper is a survey of this problem and its applications. We review the basic structure theorems about this type of counting problem. Perhaps the most famous special case is the theory of Ehrhart polynomials, introduced in the 1960s by Eugène Ehrhart. These polynomials count the number of lattice points in the different integral dilations of an integral convex polytope. We discuss recent algorithmic solutions to this problem and conclude with a look at what happens when trying to count lattice points in more complicated regions of space.
