A concise, incremental algorithm for raster approximations to ellipses in standard position produces approximations that are good to the last pixel even near octant boundaries or the thin ends of highly eccentric ellipses. The resulting approximations commute with reflection about the diagonal and are mathematically specifiable without reference to details ...
Keywords: Bresenham algorithm, Diophantine approximation, Freeman approximation

The computing community is now concerned with the cost in time and money consumed by the debugging process. In spite of advances, such as proving program correctness, use of higher level languages and new methods for structuring programs, the problem remains. The panelists will consider many phases of the debugging ...

One of the most important things, it seems to me, in extending a language, is somehow to have the extension smooth with respect to the base. Smoothness is an aesthetic requirement, and I can't be too precise about it; but it is also a very strong requirement, and one that ...

Macroinstruction compilers constructed from a small set of functions can be made extremely powerful. In particular, conditional assembly, nested definitions, and parenthetical notation serve to make a compiler capable of accepting very general extensions to its ground language.
