Monitors: An Operating System Structuring Concept
 Communications of the ACM
, 1974
"... This is a digitized copy derived from an ACM copyrighted work. It is not guaranteed to be an accurate copy of the author's original work. This paper develops BrinchHansen's concept of a monitor as a method of structuring an operating system. It introduces a form of synchronization, descri ..."

, describes a possible rnctltotl of implementation in terms of semaphorcs and gives a suitable proof rule. Illustrative examples include a single rcsourcc scheduler, a bounded buffer, an alarm clock, a buffer pool, a disk head optimizer, and a version of the problem of readers and writers. Key Words
Uniform proofs as a foundation for logic programming
 ANNALS OF PURE AND APPLIED LOGIC
, 1991
"... A prooftheoretic characterization of logical languages that form suitable bases for Prologlike programming languages is provided. This characterization is based on the principle that the declarative meaning of a logic program, provided by provability in a logical system, should coincide with its ..."

A Framework for Defining Logics
 JOURNAL OF THE ASSOCIATION FOR COMPUTING MACHINERY
, 1993
"... The Edinburgh Logical Framework (LF) provides a means to define (or present) logics. It is based on a general treatment of syntax, rules, and proofs by means of a typed calculus with dependent types. Syntax is treated in a style similar to, but more general than, MartinLof's system of ariti ..."

An axiomatic basis for computer programming
 COMMUNICATIONS OF THE ACM
, 1969
"... In this paper an attempt is made to explore the logical foundations of computer programming by use of techniques which were first applied in the study of geometry and have later been extended to other branches of mathematics. This involves the elucidation of sets of axioms and rules of inference w ..."

which can be used in proofs of the properties of computer programs. Examples are given of such axioms and rules, and a formal proof of a simple theorem is displayed. Finally, it is argued that important advantages, both theoretical and practical, may follow from a pursuance of these topics.
Featherweight Java: A Minimal Core Calculus for Java and GJ
 ACM Transactions on Programming Languages and Systems
, 1999
"... Several recent studies have introduced lightweight versions of Java: reduced languages in which complex features like threads and reflection are dropped to enable rigorous arguments about key properties such as type safety. We carry this process a step further, omitting almost all features of the fu ..."

Featherweight Java bears a similar relation to Java as the lambdacalculus does to languages such as ML and Haskell. It offers a similar
A learning algorithm for Boltzmann machines
 Cognitive Science
, 1985
"... The computotionol power of massively parallel networks of simple processing elements resides in the communication bandwidth provided by the hardware connections between elements. These connections con allow a significant fraction of the knowledge of the system to be applied to an instance of a probl ..."

One kind of computation for which massively porollel networks appear to be well suited is large constraint satisfaction searches, but to use the connections efficiently two conditions must be met: First, a search technique that is suitable for parallel networks must be found
Logic Programming with Focusing Proofs in Linear Logic
 Journal of Logic and Computation
, 1992
"... The deep symmetry of Linear Logic [18] makes it suitable for providing abstract models of computation, free from implementation details which are, by nature, oriented and non symmetrical. I propose here one such model, in the area of Logic Programming, where the basic computational principle is C ..."

The Foundation of a Generic Theorem Prover
 Journal of Automated Reasoning

These operations constitute a metalogic (or `logical framework') in which the objectlogics are formalized. Isabell ..."

Policy gradient methods for reinforcement learning with function approximation.
 In NIPS,

Abstract Function approximation is essential to reinforcement learning, but the standard approach of approximating a value function and determining a policy from it has so far proven theoretically intractable. In this paper we explore an alternative approach in which the policy is explicitly repres ..."

Using this result, we prove for the first time that a version of policy iteration with arbitrary differentiable function approximation is convergent to a locally optimal
