Generic Generalizations in Science

François Claveau, Jordan Girard
2018 Erkenntnis: An International Journal of Scientific Philosophy  
The last section indicates ways in which this extension is fruitful for the two strands of research that we combine: the philosophy of science literature on generalizations and the semantics literature  ...  One argument is that the interpretation in terms of ceteris paribus laws is a historical accident.  ...  A Classification of generalizations in the sciences In this section, we develop a classification of scientific generalizations.  ...

A Survey on Modeling Language Evolution in the New Millennium

Arianna D'Ulizia, Fernando Ferri, Patrizia Grifoni
2019 New generation computing  
Therefore, modeling language evolution has attracted the interest of several researchers giving rise to a lot of models in the literature of the last millennium.  ...  Language is a complex evolving system and it is not a trivial task to model the dynamics of processes occurring during its evolution.  ...  These models have been surveyed by several authors [21, 23, 27, 55] in the literature.  ...

Generic adaptable test cases for software product line testing

Suriya Priya R. Asaithambi, Stan Jarzabek
2012 Proceedings of the 3rd annual conference on Systems, programming, and applications: software for humanity - SPLASH '12  
Our work focuses on effort reduction via systematic reuse of generic test assets by taking advantage of common aspects and predicted variability in test cases.  ...  We envision that the proposed approach to organizing test case libraries will be particularly useful in the context of Software Product Line Testing (SPLT).  ...  The study also reveals a trend in increase of test automation recently. RQ3: How is generic test artifacts managed at different levels and phases?  ...

Progress in General Systems Research [chapter]

Brian R. Gaines
1978 Applied General Systems Research  
There is still a gulf between the theory and natural language, but the advances of the past twenty years have been very great and show no signs of slowing down.  ...  No a priori classification of system quantities to input and output are needed. The classification must generally follow (if it is at all possible) from the other traits of the system.  ...
