This booklet constitutes the refereed lawsuits of the eleventh foreign convention on Algorithmic studying concept, ALT 2000, held in Sydney, Australia in December 2000. The 22 revised complete papers offered including 3 invited papers have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen from 39 submissions. The papers are geared up in topical sections on statistical studying, inductive good judgment programming, inductive inference, complexity, neural networks and different paradigms, aid vector machines.

This publication constitutes the court cases of the tenth overseas convention on Concurrency idea, CONCUR'99, held in Eindhoven, The Netherlands in August 1999. The 32 revised complete papers offered including 4 invited contributions have been chosen from a complete of ninety one submissions. The papers deal with all components of semantics, logics, and verification suggestions for concurrent structures, specifically strategy algebras, Petri nets, event-structures, real-time platforms, hybrid structures, stochastic structures, decidability, model-checking, verification, refinement, time period and graph rewriting, disbursed programming, good judgment constraint programming, typing platforms, and so on.

The nationwide Aeronautics and house management is sometimes considered in nationwide phrases - as an American initiative constructed particularly to compete with the Soviet Union. but, from its inception, NASA used to be mandated not just to maintain US management in area, but additionally to pursue overseas collaboration.

The publication studies on new theories and purposes within the box of clever platforms and computing. It covers computational and synthetic intelligence equipment, in addition to advances in laptop imaginative and prescient, present factor in gigantic info and cloud computing, computation linguistics, cyber-physical structures in addition to subject matters in clever details administration.

Placing these trees as the left and the right subtrees of ϕD respectively results in a P-tree of depth at most n that represents . Compact Representation of P-trees. Proposition 1 shows P-trees to have high expressive power. However, the construction described in the proof has little practical use. First, the P-tree it produces may have a large size due to the large sizes of labeling formulas that are generated. Second, to apply it, one would need to have an explicit enumeration of the preorder to be modeled, and that explicit representation in practical settings is unavailable.

A preference tree (P-tree, for short) over I is a binary tree with all nodes other than leaves labeled with propositional formulas over I. Each P-tree T deﬁnes a natural strict order T on the set of its leaves, the order of their enumeration from left to right. Given an outcome M ∈ CD(I), we deﬁne the leaf of M in T as the leaf reached by starting at the root of T and proceeding downwards. When at a node t labeled with ϕ, if M |= ϕ, we descend to the left child of t; otherwise, we descend to the right child of t.

For an ASO-rule r of form (1), we deﬁne a P-tree Tr as shown in Fig. 7. That is, every node in Tr has the right child only (the left child is a leaf representing an outcome and is not explicitly shown). Moreover, the labels of nodes from the root down are deﬁned as follows: ϕ1 = ¬B ∨ C1 , and ϕi = Ci (2 ≤ i ≤ m). ϕ1 ϕ2 ϕm Fig. 7. A P-tree Tr Theorem 1. Given an ASO-rule r, the P-tree Tr has size linear in the size of r, and for every two outcomes M and M M ASO r M iﬀ M Tr M Proof. The P-tree Tr induces a total preorder Tr where outcomes satisfying ϕ1 are preferred to outcomes satisfying ¬ϕ1 ∧ ϕ2 , which are then preferred to outcomes satisfying ¬ϕ1 ∧ ¬ϕ2 ∧ ϕ3 , and so on.
