Independent Verification and Validation of Software for

Weapon Management System of a High Performance

Abstract - The failure of safety critical embedded software is unacceptable be it for safety, security or economic reasons. The risk of software failure in complex embedded systems is overcome by using the Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) technique. The process of IV&V and its planning needs to be initiated early in the development life cycle of the weapon management system for a high performance aircraft. In the present context, the aircraft has so far achieved successful integration and release of Air-toGround weapons and Air-to-Air close combat missiles. The above functionalities are achieved by complex embedded software systems which constitute the weapon management system for which advanced IV&V techniques have been used to remove errors during development phase. The methodology used for performing IV&V of software for weapon management system has been discussed in this paper.

CHAPTER FOUR: Anorexia: formation, persistence, change

The formation and persistence of anorexia

Anorexia is undoubtedly the best known of all eating disorders. It appears to mainly afflict young women—often adolescents—but also a number of men (5-10% of cases reported in scientific publications and two per cent of our cases studies were men).21 Although anorexia is still the eating disorder most frequently studied in scientific literature on this subject, the number of “pure” anorexics seems to be decreasing.2

As already mentioned, in the course of our experimental study we observed the existence of several variants among eating disorders, and devised different protocols of treatment for such variants. Our research indicates that there are two distinct types of anorexia, which we have named sacrificial and abstinent.

This is the most well known type of anorexia. It has been very well described in the literature of the systemic tradition, particularly by the Milan school (Selvini Palazzoli, 1963). Whenever anorexia is mentioned, it is almost always safe to assume that what is being referred to is the sacrificial type.

Getting to 2001

“Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men’s blood. Make big plans, aim high in hope and work.”


Daniel Burnham’s admonition was certainly taken cognizance of by President George Bush last Spring (1991) when he unveiled his plan to reform and improve the nation’s elementary and secondary schools. American 2000 Education Strategy calls for the major restructuring of the public school system and meeting the Six National Goals outlined by the president and the nation’s governors at Charlottesville, Virginia in the Fall of 1989. In the following pages we will examine and analyze the various proposals and strategies. But first we must make an important assertion; also, we will advise of our research procedures.

Clearly, the president intends to have his America 2000 plan in place at the commencement of the Third Millennium. To be technically and historically accurate, however, the 21st century will not begin until January 1, 2001. The concept of “zero” was not generally recognized until the Middle Ages. History in the Christian era began with Anno Domini I, and that’s good news for Mr. Bush and his successors, as it provides them—us—with an additional year to address a very ambitious agenda.

Teaching Mobile Computing—Curriculum Design and

Strategies Applied

Xiaoyuan Suo

Department of Math and Computer Science, Webster University, Saint Louis, MO, USA

Abstract--Mobile learning represents exciting new frontiers in education and pedagogy. Webster University has recently started offering courses for Mobile Computing. The designed curriculum focuses on practical experiences, which includes designing, creating, and testing mobile applications on mobile devices. In this paper, we report the curriculum designs, teaching strategies and tools applied; Major feedback also showed students were able to learn programming skills necessary to become more proficient in developing mobile applications.
