nondeterminism

(redirected from Non-determinism)

nondeterminism

(algorithm)
A property of a computation which may have more than one result.

One way to implement a nondeterministic algorithm is using backtracking, another is to explore (all) possible solutions in parallel.

The study exposed kids, ranging from ages 4 to 8 years, to computational concepts such as simple rules, event-based logic, action sequence and non-determinism.
Second, she argues that, in contrast to the structural conceptions of power in neorealist, this 'strategic maneuvering' with the West underlies the non-determinism of four ideational factors: (1) Russia's historical image in Azerbaijan; (2) Turkey's Westernising tendencies; (3) the benevolent image of Western nations; and (4) Azerbaijan's misreading of its strength relative to the willingness of the West to help.
It begins by briefly looking at scientific claims that chaos theory might support libertarianism and that recent studies with fruit flies might show that non-determinism does not entail randomness.
A fascinating example of this ambitious treatment is an illustrated comparison between the classical world view of science and the quantum world view, on page 171: This pairs and compares determinism with non-determinism, the universe viewed as a machine vs.
Then, we use the non-determinism of the protocol to choose the correct traslation of each of the cells: at the first step of the protocol where Alice (resp.
The two types of non-determinism introduced above are the origins of the two main sources of parallelism in Logic Programs: Or-Parallelism and And-Parallelism.
In our case the main consequence of modelling the paradox of the spaceship will be a new result that yields a simple and non-trivial instance of non-determinism in classical particle dynamics (arising from the absence of boundary conditions at spatial infinity).
Modern possible worlds semantics is not, however, usually taken to imply non-determinism.
With that goal in mind they incorporated into LP the concepts of don't care non-determinism as advocated by Dijkstra.
The inherent limitations of handling non-determinism associated with X values in logic simulation means simulation results may not reflect actual hardware operation.
In addition, two Nvidia verification architects, Ira Chayut and David Whipp, focus respectively on the causes of non-determinism and mismatches between C and RTL models, and on grammars to define transaction structures and strategies that ESL designers use to minimize subsequent verification activity.
Industry experts in fault tolerance previously considered the non-determinism problem for shared memory (multi-processor) environments one of the largest hurdles to providing scalable fault tolerance environments for multi-processor machines that do not require proprietary hardware or a customized software application.
