Alternative Minimalist Visions of Language [chapter]

Ray Jackendoff
2011 Non-Transformational Syntax  
An alternative minimalist approach, based on more robust basic principles and a constructionist view of the relation between lexicon and grammar, offers a more satisfactory starting point on grounds of  ...  The Minimalist Program proposes to rebuild a theory of the language capacity from absolutely minimal assumptions.  ...  The theory must account for the full complexity of adult language. The more complex competence proves to be, the more there is to explain for a theory of acquisition.  ...

A layered formal framework for modeling of cyber-physical systems

George Ungureanu, Ingo Sander
2017 Design, Automation & Test in Europe Conference & Exhibition (DATE), 2017  
Several formal models exist for description and analysis of these aspects, but they focus mainly on a single or only a few system properties.  ...  This yields a holistic, fine-grained, hierarchical and structured view of a cyber-physical system. We demonstrate the various benefits for modeling, analysis and synthesis through a typical example.  ...  This allows to define a minimalistic layered formal framework for describing CPS that: 1) conveys a fine-grained and analyzable view of a heterogeneous system's functionality; 2) abstracts behavior through  ...
