Executive screening

Execution Models [chapter]

2006 Service-Oriented Computing  
Consider an application executing at one of the business partners in an instantiation of an SOA.  ...  In other words, the system would still need to function in an open environment. For this reason, it is helpful to think in terms of such environments.  ...  In principle, because a namespace is identified via a URI, we can think of the namespace as a resource.  ...

An execution will always be a repulsive sight, but cannot, I think, fairly be called, as far as physical pain to the criminal is concerned, an inhuman one.  ...  Binns used, in the case of Powell, executed at this prison, nearly, if not quite, as long a drop as Marwood, I do not ofler an opinion on the "legality" or otherwise of the "long drop."  ...

Model Checker Execution Reports [article]

Rodrigo Castaño, Victor Braberman, Diego Garbervetsky, Sebastian Uchitel
2017 arXiv   pre-print
Software model checking constitutes an undecidable problem and, as such, even an ideal tool will in some cases fail to give a conclusive answer.  ...  We characterize the information that model checkers themselves can provide, in terms of analyzed traces, i.e. sequences of statements, and safe cones, and present the notion of execution reports, which  ...  The code snippet in Figure 1 corresponds to a parametric test harness exercising the method min.  ...

The Geography of Executive Compensation

Christa H. S. Bouwman
2012 Social Science Research Network  
An examination of what drives this relationship between geography and executive compensation reveals that the results are most consistent with envy.  ...  There are several reasons to believe it could matter in executive compensation as well, in the sense that CEO compensation may depend on how much geographically-close CEOs earn.  ...  If Alex Rodriguez can make about $20 million a year with the Yankees (and not come through in the clutch), the thinking goes, don't CEOs deserve an extra zero or two?"  ...

Tree-based Arithmetic and Compressed Representations of Giant Numbers [article]

Paul Tarau
2013 arXiv   pre-print
While answering these questions positively, our tree based representation described in this paper comes with a few extra benefits: it compresses giant numbers such that, for instance, the largest known  ...  prime number as well as its related perfect number are represented as trees of small sizes.  ...  To provide a concise view of our compressed tree data type and its operations, we will use the strongly typed functional language Haskell as a precise means to provide an executable specification.  ...
