Abelard to Apple the fate of American colleges and universities by Richard A DeMillo( )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 1,606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The vast majority of American college students attend two thousand or so private and public institutions that might be described as the Middle--reputable educational institutions, but not considered equal to the elite and entrenched upper echelon of the Ivy League and other prestigious schools. Richard DeMillo has a warning for these colleges and universities in the Middle: If you do not change, you are heading for irrelevance and marginalization. In Abelard to Apple, DeMillo argues that these institutions, clinging precariously to a centuries-old model of higher education, are ignoring the social, historical, and economic forces at work in today's world. In the age of iTunes, open source software, and for-profit online universities, there are new rules for higher education. DeMillo, who has spent years in both academia and in industry, explains how higher education arrived at its current parlous state and offers a road map for the twenty-first century. He describes the evolving model for higher education, from European universities based on a medieval model to American land-grant colleges to Apple's iTunes U and MIT's OpenCourseWare. He offers ten rules to help colleges reinvent themselves (including "Don't romanticize your weaknesses") and argues for a focus on teaching undergraduates. DeMillo's message--for colleges and universities, students, alumni, parents, employers, and politicians--is that any college or university can change course if it defines a compelling value proposition (one not based in "institutional envy" of Harvard and Berkeley) and imagines an institution that delivers it. -- Book cover

Mutation analysis as a tool for software quality assurance by Richard A DeMillo( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Formal semantics and the logical structure of programming languages by Richard A DeMillo( )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mutation Analysis( Book )

2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new type of software test is introduced, called mutation analysis. A method for applying mutation analysis is described, and the results of several experiments to determine its effectiveness are given. Finally it is shown how mutation analysis can subsume or augment many of the more traditional program testing techniques. (Author)

Software Project Forecasting by Richard A DeMillo( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We have argued that a major use of software metrics is in the forecasting problem for software projects. By analogy with weather forecasting, we may characterize the current state of knowledge in software forecasting as the gathering of portents. While these may be useful and sometimes decisive in project management, they are prescientific and qualitative. Further, it seems very unlikely that the portents can be developed into a useful theory of forecasting. To develop scientific forecasting tools, a rational way of predicting the future from historical primary data is required. It is also important that the primary data and the measurements used to obtain it satisfy some basic methodological requirements -- for example, the hypotheses developed from the measurements should be meaningful in the sense implied by measurement theory. The statistical approach, seeking to predict future events on the basis of historical patterns, seems to be an attractive short range approach to the forecasting problem. The goal of the exact method is to be able to apply largescale computation to many micropredictions to synthesize a quantitative forecast
Protocols for data security by Richard A DeMillo( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Space-Time Trade-Offs in Structured Programming( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report extends the results of a previous paper by improving the space-time inequality by an exponential, and includes reducible flowgraphs
Combinatorial Graph Embedding by Richard A DeMillo( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Let G, G' be directed graphs. A combinatorial embedding of G into G' is an identification of each x an element of V(G) with a set of vertices S a subset of V(G') such that each S is bounded in size by a constant independent of <V(G)> and each arc in G is carried into a directed path of length bounded by a constant independent of <V(G)>. This concept has formed the basis for a number of theoretical studies and the papers collected here are representative of - with one major exception - the state-of-the-art with regard to graph embedding
