More importantly, it requires an extensive handcrafting of non-trivial implementation code.  ...  Among the different techniques that are used to design selfadaptive software systems, control theory allows one to design an adaptation policy whose properties, such as stability and accuracy, can be formally  ...  A systematic approach to address both concerns is to use behavioral contractsi.e. pre and postconditions and state invariants.  ...

Linking the multi-level perspective with social representations theory: Gasifiers as a niche innovation reinforcing the energy-from-waste (EfW) regime

Les Levidow, Paul Upham
2017 Technological forecasting & social change  
Crucial are 'suitably flexible facilities and contractsi.e. that do not "lock in" an unreasonably high proportion of waste, should waste prevention, reuse and recycling performance substantially increase  ...  This in turn has multiple aspects, involving trade-offs with other benefits. Diverse selection pressures can be favoured for a technology choice within a larger waste-management facility.  ...
