Searching large data volumes with MISD processing
(Doktoravhandlinger ved NTNU, 1503-8181; 2008:207, Doctoral thesis, 2008)
Historically, supercomputing has focused on number crunching. Nonnumeric applications, such as information retrieval and analysis, have to a lesser extent been able to exploit the inherent resources of supercomputers. This ...
Semantic Annotation for Process Models: Facilitating Process Knowledge Management via Semantic Interoperability
(Doktoravhandlinger ved NTNU, 1503-8181; 2008:3, Doctoral thesis, 2008)
Business process models representing process knowledge about doing business are necessary for designing Information Systems (IS) solutions in enterprises. Interoperability of business process knowledge in legacy systems ...
Evolving Static Hardware Redundancy for Defect Tolerant FPGAs
(Doktoravhandlinger ved NTNU, 1503-8181; 2008:48, Doctoral thesis, 2008)
Integrated circuits have been in constant progression since the first prototype in 1958. The semiconductor industry has maintained a constant rate of miniaturisation of transistors and wires, resulting in ever increasing ...
Efficient Commit Processing in High- Availability Main-Memory Databases

Decision Support for Choice of Security Solution: The Aspect-Oriented Risk Driven Development (AORDD) Framework
(Doktoravhandlinger ved NTNU, 1503-8181; 2007:208, Doctoral thesis, 2007)
In security assessment and management there is no single correct solution to the identified security problems or challenges. Instead there are only choices and tradeoffs. The main reason for this is that modern information ...
Observing and Analyzing Clinicians’ Information and Communication Behaviour: An Approach to Requirements Engineering for Mobile Health Information Systems
(Doktoravhandlinger ved NTNU, 1503-8181; 2007:220, Doctoral thesis, 2007)
Advanced information systems have great potential for supporting clinicians in their patient-centered work. In order to meet the specific information and communication needs of healthcare professionals during a wide range ...
An efficient solution to inexact graph matching with application to computer vision
(Doktoravhandlinger ved NTNU, 1503-8181; 2007:164, Doctoral thesis, 2007)
Graph matching is considered the recognition step in computer vision. Our work uses attributed relation graphs (ARG’s) for image representation and analysis, a structural description that we enhance with the complete and ...
