Proust in love by William C Carter( )
17 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The acclaimed Proust biographer William Carter portrays Proust's amorous adventures and misadventures from adolescence through his adult years, supplying where appropriate Proust's own sensitive, intelligent, and often disillusioned observations about love and sexuality. Proust is revealed as a man agonizingly caught between the constant fear of public exposure as a homosexual, and the need to find and express love. In telling the story of "Proust in love", Carter also shows how the author's experiences became major themes in his novel "In Search of Lost Time". Carter discusses Proust's adolescent sexual experiences, his disastrous brothel visit to cure homosexual inclinations, and his first great loves. He also addresses the duel Proust fought with the journalist Jean Lorrain after he alluded to Proust's homosexuality in print, his flirtations with respectable women and high-class prostitutes, and his affairs with young men of the servant class. With new revelations about Proust's love life and a gallery of photographs, the book provides an unprecedented glimpse of Proust's gay Paris
Marcel Proust : a life by William C Carter( Book )
19 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and Polish and held by 1,463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Parisian world of which Proust was a part was also home to such luminaries as Anatole France, Jean Cocteau, and Andre Gide. William C. Carter brings this social world to life while he explores the inner world of Proust's intellectual and artistic development, as well as his most intimate personal experience. Carter examines Proust's passionate attachment to his mother, his deep love for the scenes of his youth, his flirtation with Parisian high society, his complicated sexual desires, and his irrevocable commitment to literary truth - and shows how all of these played out in the making of his great novel."--Jacket
The memoirs of Ernest A. Forssgren, Proust's Swedish valet by Ernest A Forssgren( )
10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The memoirs of Ernest A Forssgren, the young Swede who served as Marcel Proust's last valet, have never before been published in full. This book presents the complete text (which was written in English), with an introduction and annotations by the distinguished Proust scholar William C Carter. The memoirs, along with other previously unknown documents relating to the Proust household and to Forssgren, shed new light on key periods in Proust's life and greatly augment what is known about Forssgren and his relationship with Proust. The publication of "The Memoirs of Ernest A Forssgren, Marcel Proust's Swedish Valet" constitutes an important contribution to Proust scholarship
The Proustian quest by William C Carter( Book )
6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Proustian Quest is the first full-length study that explores the influence of social change on Proust's vision. In Remembrance of Things Past, Proust describes how the machines of transportation and communication transformed fashion, social mores, time-space perception, and the understanding of the laws of nature. Concentrating on the motif of speed, Carter establishes the centrality of the modern world to the novel's main themes and produces a far- reaching synthesis that demonstrates the work's profound structural unity"--Publisher description

4 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and French and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Deftly blending the personal and the historical, this program is an illuminating and accessible introduction to the life and work of Marcel Proust, whose novel Remembrance of Things Past changed the face of literature. Interviews with writers Dame Iris Murdoch, Shelby Foote, and writer-critic Roger Shattuck highlight the magnitude of Proust's accomplishment, while dramatizations of key scenes from Proust's life combine with rare archival footage to place his personal struggle in a historical context. The film was co-produced by William C. Carter, author of the critically acclaimed Proust biography.

Design for validation an approach to systems validation ( Book )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Every complex system built is validated in some manner. Computer validation began with one person reviewing the design of the system. As systems became too complicated for one person to review, validation began to rely on the application of adhoc methods by many individuals. As the cost of changes mounted and the expense of failures increased, more organized procedures became essential. Attempts at devising and carrying out those procedures showed that validation is indeed a difficult technical problem. The successful transformation of the validation process into a systematic series of formally sound, integrated steps is necessary if the liability inherent in future digital-system-based avionic and space systems is to be minimized. This report presents a suggested framework and timetable for that transformation. In sections two through four, we provide basic working definitions of two pivotal ideas--validation and system life-cycle, and show how the two concepts interact. Many examples are given of past and present validation activities by NASA and others. In section five, we present a conceptual framework for the validation process. Finally, in sections six and seven, we list important areas for ongoing development of the validation process at NASA Langley Research Center (NASA-LaRC)

Phase ii of an architectural study for a self-repairing computer ( Book )
1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The architecture and organization of a self-repairing computer which operates correctly even if some of its components malfunction is described. This computer, using currently available components, has a 0.997 probability of correct operation on a 10,000 hour mission with a 25% duty cycle. First the problem is stated, an overview of previous work is given, and the results of the investigation are summarized. Then several current computer component technologies are appraised and the assumption in reliability models of a Poisson failure distribution for these components is justified. Next, the development of several algorithms for the generation and evaluation of diagnostic test pattersns for computer circuits is described. These algorithms are illustrated by examples and by detailed APL programs. Next, mathematical reliability evaluation models for a variety of functional computer units are devised, their APL programming implementation given, and their use in the design process illustrated. The effects of failure coverage, duty cycle, number of spares, failure tolerance, lower component failure rate with power off, and other parameters are tabulated and delineated. Last, the architecture and operation of an automatically repaired computer at different levels of organization is described, including failure tolerant storage, ROS, and arithmetic logical organs. The design of reconfiguration switches, status registers, and a fully checked decoder is also given. By employing these techniques, which require about 2.5 times as much hardware as an equivalent simplex computer, it is possible to gain the same benefits as would be produced by a 600 fold decrease in component failure rates.
