Empirical Research Methods in Software Engineering
This course will explore the role of empiricism in software engineering research, and will prepare students for advanced research in SE by examining how to plan, conduct and report on empirical investigations. The course will cover all of the principal methods applicable to SE: controlled experiment, case studies, surveys, archival analysis, action research and ethnographies, and will relate these methods to relevant metatheories in the philosophy and sociology of science. The course will critic
Interactive Animation on the Macintosh II
The efficiency of images in communication between humans has so far been used almost exclusively by TV and other mass medias. The costs have been too great to encourage the use of images in the financially restricted everyday practice of architecture. With a range of application programs for the Apple Macintosh II the vision has come close to reality.
