Come, Let's Play: Scenario-Based Programming Using LSCs and the Play-Engine

This publication provides a strong new language and technique for programming advanced reactive structures in a scenario-based demeanour. The language is reside series charts (LSCs), a multimodal extension of series charts and UML's series diagrams, utilized in the prior customarily for necessities. The method is play-in/play-out, an strangely handy ability for specifying inter-object scenario-based habit without delay from a GUI or an item version diagram, with the incredible skill to execute that habit, or these necessities, at once.

CAD für Moduln und Systeme in der Elektronik: Entwurf und Technologie

Die hohe Komplexität elektronischer Moduln und Systeme, aber auch die immer kürzer werdenden Innovationszyklen machen den Einsatz rechnerunterstützter Entwurfsverfahren (CAD) unentbehrlich. Lagen die Entwicklungsschwerpunkte in früheren Jahren noch in der Technologie und in der Fertigung elektronischer Komponenten, so rücken heute die Entwurfsmethoden und -verfahren mit in den Vordergrund.

Example text

We identify the element in the second row and first column of the matrix B by B21. 3. The matrices u and v are special matrices in the sense that they contain a single row or column, respectively. , we can freely interchange the vector notations (x, y, z) and [x, y, z]). Observe that for row and column vectors, it is unnecessary to use a double subscript to denote the elements of the matrix—we only need one subscript. Occasionally we like to think of the rows of a matrix as vectors. For example, we might write: where A1,* = [A11, A12, A13], A2,* = [A21, A22, A23], and A3,* = [A31, A32, A33] .

To discover the operations defined on vectors and their geometric applications. 3. To become familiar with the XNA Math library’s vector functions and classes. 1 VECTORS A vector refers to a quantity that possesses both magnitude and direction. Quantities that possess both magnitude and direction are called vector-valued quantities. Examples of vector-valued quantities are forces (a force is applied in a particular direction with a certain strength—magnitude), displacements (the net direction and distance a particle moved), and velocities (speed and direction).

Forces applied to a ball. The forces are combined using vector addition to get a net force. 2 LENGTH AND UNIT VECTORS Geometrically, the magnitude of a vector is the length of the directed line segment. , || u || denotes the magnitude of u). Now, given a vector u = (x , y , z), we wish to compute its magnitude algebraically. 8. First, we look at the triangle in the xz-plane with sides x, z, and hypotenuse a. From the Pythagorean theorem, we have . Now look at the triangle with sides a, y, and hypotenuse || u ||.
