Modifying an architecture for interface customisation support

This work is an investigation of how a software architecture can be changed in order to improve the support of the creation of a customised user interface. The parts of Symbian OS that are of interest for the work are described in detail. Then a comparison of the user interfaces of four different mobile devices is made, in order to get a picture of what the interfaces of such devices could look like.

Software Techniques for Distributed Shared Memory

In large multiprocessors, the access to shared memory is often nonuniform, and may vary as much as ten times for some distributed shared-memory architectures (DSMs). This dissertation identifies another important nonuniform property of DSM systems: nonuniform communication architecture, NUCA. High-end hardware-coherent machines
