Competitive Parallelism: Getting Your Priorities Right [article]

Stefan K. Muller, Umut A. Acar, Robert Harper
2018 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we present techniques for programming and reasoning about parallel interactive applications that can use both cooperative and competitive threading.  ...  Our techniques enable the programmer to write rich parallel interactive programs by creating and synchronizing with threads as needed, and by assigning threads user-defined and partially ordered priorities  ...  threading does not apply to competitive threading, because of the impact of priorities on run-time.  ...

Enhancing anonymity via market competition

Shouhuai Xu, W.R. Nelson, R. Sandhu
2004 International Conference on Information Technology: Coding and Computing, 2004. Proceedings. ITCC 2004.  
The major contribution of this paper is the incorporation of market competition into anonymity system models.  ...  We propose an institutional framework within which service providers compete to provide high quality anonymity, and users can customize their anonymity according to their personal priorities.  ...  We call this enhanced anonymity parallel anonymity.  ...

7. Cooperation and Competition [chapter]

1995 Sojourners and Settlers  
We explore the tensions between cooperation and competition in the context of improving the content, delivery and penetration of statistics education.  ...  I have a very organic conception of the way forward which goes, "get your roots in where you can and try to establish something that can grow there."  ...  Finding answers to the rest of these questions will be your homework. Your deadline is ICOTS-8 in 2010 but early submission of your assignments is strongly encouraged.  ...

Parallel database systems

David J. DeWitt, Jim Gray
1990 SIGMOD record  
Parallel database machine architectures based on exotic hardware have evolved to a parallel database systems running atop a parallel dataflow software architecture based on conventional shared-nothing  ...  But it is entirely possible to place several operators within a process to get coarser grained parallelism.  ...  Given this, the work of the low priority client is effectively promoted to high priority when the low priority request is serviced by the high-priority server.  ...

The ING instrumentation conference discussion — options for a competitive observatory

N.A. Walton, S.J. Smartt
2001 New astronomy reviews (Print)  
The need for an active development programme of competitive instrumentation for 4-m class telescopes, and in particular the William Herschel Telescope (WHT) was stressed.  ...  I think if you loose that you have lost your faint light spectroscopy. Reynier Peletier: No, I am saying they guarantee it is done, not with a priority because then you may not get your data.  ...  But in the area of new instrumentation I would absolutely agree that you have to get INGRID and NAOMI into a world competitive state in the next year, and that would be my priority ahead of LDSS.  ...

Consumer versus producer: Overcoming the disconnect between management and Competitive Intelligence

Douglas C. Bernhardt
1999 Competitive Intelligence Review  
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The most overwhelming challenge faced by practitioners of competitive intelligence has little to do with the development of their professional skills.  ...  Competitive intelligence must, in short, make a material difference to the agendas of policy-makers. Without "buy in" on their part, CI is doomed to failure.  ...  What will you do with it once you get it? What is the likely impact on the company? What are your existing assumptions, and upon what data and information are they based?  ...

English Unfair Competition Law

Richard Arnold
2013 IIC - International Review of Intellectual Property and Competition Law  
In this article I shall suggest that it is time to recognise that there is such a thing as English unfair competition law, and I shall explore its place in international and European unfair competition  ...  For over a century, it was generally accepted that England had no law of unfair competition.  ...  . … Changing your provider to BT could be the right move if you're worried about the future of your broadband service.  ...
