Coupling Metrics for Aspect-Oriented Programming: A Systematic Review of Maintainability Studies
Over the last few years, a growing number of studies have explored how Aspect-Oriented Programming (AOP) might impact software maintainability. Most of the studies use coupling met...

The Impact of Coupling on the Fault-Proneness of Aspect-Oriented Programs: An Empirical Study
—Coupling in software applications is often used as an indicator of external quality attributes such as fault-proneness. In fact, the correlation of coupling metrics and faults i...

Phase Transition and Hysteresis in an Ensemble of Stochastic Spiking Neurons
An ensemble of stochastic non-leaky integrate-and-fire neurons with global, delayed and excitatory coupling and a small refractory period is analyzed. Simulations with adiabatic ...

Delayed path coupling and generating random permutations
We analyze various stochastic processes for generating permutations almost uniformly at random in distributed and parallel systems. All our protocols are simple, elegant and are b...

Fine-grain analysis of common coupling and its application to a Linux case study
Common coupling (sharing global variables across modules) is widely accepted as a measure of software quality and maintainability; a low level of common coupling is necessary (but...

Path coupling without contraction
Path coupling is a useful technique for simplifying the analysis of a coupling of a Markov chain. Rather than defining and analysing the coupling on every pair in Ω×Ω, where...

Quantitatively measuring object-oriented couplings
Abstract. One key to several quality factors of software is the way components are connected. Software coupling can be used to estimate a number of quality factors, including maint...
