Distributed Systems Architecture

Some articles on systems, system, distributed systems architecture, architecture:

Chaos Theory
... Chaos theory studies the behavior of dynamical systems that are highly sensitive to initial conditions, an effect which is popularly referred to as the butterfly effect ... errors in numerical computation) yield widely diverging outcomes for such dynamical systems, rendering long-term prediction impossible in general ... This happens even though these systems are deterministic, meaning that their future behavior is fully determined by their initial conditions, with no random ...
Interoperability
... Interoperability is the ability of diverse systems and organizations to work together (inter-operate) ... The term is often used in a technical systems engineering sense, or alternatively in a broad sense, taking into account social, political, and organizational factors that impact system ... was initially defined for IT systems or services and only allows for information to be exchanged (see definition below), a more generic definition could be this one Interoperability is a property of a ...
Linear Dynamical Systems
... Linear dynamical systems can be solved in terms of simple functions and the behavior of all orbits classified ... In a linear system the phase space is the N-dimensional Euclidean space, so any point in phase space can be represented by a vector with N numbers ... The analysis of linear systems is possible because they satisfy a superposition principle if u(t) and w(t) satisfy the differential equation for the vector field (but not necessarily the initial condition ...
General Comprehensive Operating System - Distributed Systems Architecture
... The networking architecture, developed by Honeywell-Bull for the GCOS environment, was Distributed Systems Architecture (DSA) ... Distributed Systems Architecture was strictly compliant with Open Systems Interconnection ...
Chaos Theory - History
... In the system studied, "Hadamard's billiards", Hadamard was able to show that all trajectories are unstable in that all particle trajectories diverge exponentially from one another ... that linear theory, the prevailing system theory at that time, simply could not explain the observed behaviour of certain experiments like that of the logistic map ... was considered by chaos theories as a full component of the studied systems ...

Famous quotes containing the words architecture, distributed and/or systems:

    All architecture is great architecture after sunset; perhaps architecture is really a nocturnal art, like the art of fireworks.
    Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)

    Indiana was really, I suppose, a Democratic State. It has always been put down in the book as a state that might be carried by a close and careful and perfect organization and a great deal of—[from audience: “soap”Ma reference to purchased votes, the word being followed by laughter].
    I see reporters here, and therefore I will simply say that everybody showed a great deal of interest in the occasion, and distributed tracts and political documents all through the country.
    Chester A. Arthur (1829–1886)

    People stress the violence. That’s the smallest part of it. Football is brutal only from a distance. In the middle of it there’s a calm, a tranquility. The players accept pain. There’s a sense of order even at the end of a running play with bodies stewn everywhere. When the systems interlock, there’s a satisfaction to the game that can’t be duplicated. There’s a harmony.
    Don Delillo (b. 1926)
