Software reuse
Charles W. Krueger
Pages: 131-183
DOI: 10.1145/130844.130856
Software reuse is the process of creating software systems from existing software rather than building software systems from scratch. This simple yet powerful vision was introduced in 1968. Software reuse has, however, failed to become a...

Householder reduction of linear equations
Per Brinch Hansen
Pages: 185-194
DOI: 10.1145/130844.130851
This tutorial discusses Householder reduction of n linear equations to a triangular form which can be solved by back substitution. The main strength of the method is its unconditional numerical stability. We...

Analyzing algorithms by simulation: variance reduction techniques and simulation speedups
Catherine McGeoch
Pages: 195-212
DOI: 10.1145/130844.130853
Although experimental studies have been widely applied to the investigation of algorithm performance, very little attention has been given to experimental method in this area. This is unfortunate, since much can be done to improve the quality of...
