Tracing innovation: an activity theoretical approach.
Wiegel, V. (2011)
Tracing innovation: an activity theoretical approach. In ECIS 2011 Proceedings
This paper argues that tracing the diffusion of innovation is a challenging endeavour. The difficulty is that an innovation comes into existence as a cognitive and inter-perso...
Towards optimal broadcasting in wormhole-routed meshes
Al-Dubai, A., Ould-Khaoua, M., & Mackenzie, L. (2000)
Towards optimal broadcasting in wormhole-routed meshes. In H. R. Arabnia (Ed.), Proceedings of the international conference on parallel and distributed processing techniques and applications : PDPTA'2001, 1121-1128
Most existing broadcast algorithms proposed for the mesh do not scale well with the network size. Furthermore, they have been mainly based on deterministic routing, which cann...
