Higher-Level Hardware Synthesis

The exponential elevate in transistor density on machine chips, assisting Moore+s legislations now for 4 a long time, poses new layout demanding situations to engineers and computing device scientists alike. New innovations for dealing with complexity needs to be built if circuits are to take complete benefit of the colossal numbers of transistors to be had.

Reasoning about program transformations: imperative programming and flow of data

This new publication offers a close, present, and pragmatic presentation of this system analyses and alterations that extract the move of knowledge in machine reminiscence structures. execs, practitioners, and researchers in software program engineering, computing device engineering, application layout research, and compiler layout will reap the benefits of its presentation of data-flow and reminiscence optimization strategies and instruments.

Languages and Compilers for High Performance Computing: 17th International Workshop, LCPC 2004, West Lafayette, IN, USA, September 22-24, 2004, Revised Selected Papers

This booklet constitutes the completely refereed post-proceedings of the seventeenth overseas Workshop on Languages and Compilers for prime functionality Computing, LCPC 2004, held in West Lafayette, IN, united states in September 2004. The 33 revised complete papers provided have been rigorously chosen in the course of rounds of reviewing and development.

Metaprogramming Elixir: Write Less Code, Get More Done (and Have Fun!)

Write code that writes code with Elixir macros. Macros make metaprogramming attainable and outline the language itself. during this ebook, you are going to methods to use macros to increase the language with quickly, maintainable code and proportion performance in methods you by no means inspiration attainable. you will discover the best way to expand Elixir along with your personal top notch good points, optimize functionality, and create domain-specific languages.

The quantile function is useful for calculating breaks so that the intervals will contain equal frequencies of values. numeric levels nlevels :, interaction Make a factor from a vector Make an ordered factor from a vector Make a factor by generating (equal sized) levels Make a factor by cutting a vector at given break points Set the first (reference) level of a factor Get a factor’s numeric codes Get the labels of a factor’s levels Get the number of levels of a factor Cross-classify factors Arithmetic operators are not valid for factors.

Any operation involving NA is undecidable and so the only sensible result is NA. Descriptive functions by default will propagate NA values rather than a potentially incorrect summary. na is needed to test for NA. The function returns TRUE where its argument is NA. cases is provided for testing for NA along data frame rows. Other functions provide arguments to accommodate NA. 4 Handling Missing Values Cases with missing values can be dropped altogether: [ dat ¼ dat½complete:casesðdatÞ; Š # Drop cases ðrowsÞ with any NA It is possible to impute40 values that are missing.

They are not defined for character data. They are defined for logical data by treating logical values as numeric in an arithmetic context as: TRUE=[1 and FALSE=[0. Consequently the sum function counts TRUE in a logical vector, and the mean function calculates the proportion TRUE. This enables descriptive functions to summarise how a vector meets a given condition. For example [ x ¼ cð2; 4; 6; 8; 10Þ [ y ¼ cð"apple"; "apple"; "orange"; "apple"; "orange"Þ [ sumðxÞ [ sumðyÞ # Sum of the elements of x # Error!
