Exposing concurrency failures : a comprehensive survey of the state of the art and a novel approach to reproduce field failures

Bianchi, Francesco Adalberto ; Pezzè, Mauro (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2018 ; 2018INFO015.

With the rapid advance of multi-core and distributed architectures, concurrent systems are becoming more and more popular. Concurrent systems are extremely hard to develop and validate, as their overall behavior depends on the non-deterministic interleaving of the execution flows that comprise the system. Wrong and unexpected interleavings may lead to concurrency faults that are extremely...

The comparative osteology of Plesiochelys bigleri n. sp., a new coastal marine turtle from the Late Jurassic of Porrentruy (Switzerland)

Püntener​, Christian ; Anquetin, Jérémy ; Billon-Bruyat, Jean-Paul

In: PeerJ, 2017, vol. 5, p. e3482

During the Late Jurassic, several groups of eucryptodiran turtles inhabited the shallow epicontinental seas of Western Europe. Plesiochelyidae are an important part of this first radiation of crown-group turtles into coastal marine ecosystems. Fossils of Plesiochelyidae occur in many European localities, and are especially abundant in the Kimmeridgian layers of the Swiss Jura Mountains (Solothurn...

Effect of taxonomic resolution on ecological and palaeoecological inference : a test using testate amoeba water table depth transfer functions

Mitchell, Edward A. D ; Lamentowicz, Mariusz ; Payne, Richard J ; Mazei, Yuri

In: Quaternary Science Reviews, 2014, vol. 91, p. 62-69

Sound taxonomy is a major requirement for quantitative environmental reconstruction using biological data. Transfer function performance should theoretically be expected to decrease with reduced taxonomic resolution. However for many groups of organisms taxonomy is imperfect and species level identification not always possible. We conducted numerical experiments on five testate amoeba water table...

Cytotaxonomic notes on the tribe Helieae (Gentianaceae)

Trunz, Vincent ; Zeltner, Louis ; Küpfer, Philippe ; Grant, Jason R

In: Harvard Papers in Botany, 2012, vol. 17, no. 1, p. 43-46

A survey of all known chromosome counts of gentian tribe Helieae are presented including new reports for ten species. Amongst the novelties are four genera of the Gentianaceae that are reported for the first time, Calolisianthus and Helia (both Helieae), and Schultesia and Zygostigma (both Chironieae). In the Helieae, our results reinforce the hypothesis of Weaver 1969...

Clypeina helvetica Morellet and Morellet, 1918, revisited. A Priabonian (Late Eocene) dasycladalean alga from the Diablerets Nappe of the Helvetic Alps, southwestern Switzerland

Schlagintweit, Felix ; Bover-Arnal, Telm ; Menkveld-Gfeller, Ursula ; Strasser, André

In: Facies, 2013, vol. 58, no. 1, p. 287-297

The dasycladale Clypeina helvetica was described and illustrated with six drawings by Morellet and Morellet (Bull Soc Géol Fr 4o ser 18:102–105, 1918) from the “Bartonian” of the Helvetic Zone of southwestern Switzerland. Since then, C. helvetica has not been reported again neither from Switzerland nor from any other locality. Abundant material sampled from the Priabonian Diablerets Member...
