Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Operating system
  • Programming language
  • Computer network

W.K. Fuchs spends much of his time researching Distributed computing, Rollback, Process, Parallel computing and Fault tolerance. His study on Message passing is often connected to Logging as part of broader study in Distributed computing. The study incorporates disciplines such as Disk storage, Operating system, Shared memory, Virtual memory and Scope in addition to Rollback.

W.K. Fuchs usually deals with Process and limits it to topics linked to Code and Fault tree analysis, Algorithm and Tree. His Parallel computing study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Redundancy, Workstation and Random access memory. His research integrates issues of System testing, Very-large-scale integration and Error detection and correction in his study of Fault tolerance.

His most cited work include:

  • Fault and error models for VLSI (144 citations)
  • Progressive retry method and apparatus having reusable software modules for software failure recovery in multi-process message-passing applications (122 citations)
  • Progressive retry method and apparatus for software failure recovery in multi-process message-passing applications (121 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

W.K. Fuchs mainly focuses on Parallel computing, Distributed computing, Fault tolerance, Algorithm and Very-large-scale integration. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Redundancy, Compiler and Rollback. His Rollback research incorporates themes from Process, Message processing, Shared memory, Multiprocessing and Scope.

His Distributed computing research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Computer network, Overhead and Distributed shared memory. His Software fault tolerance study in the realm of Fault tolerance interacts with subjects such as Flexibility. His Algorithm research incorporates elements of Fault detection and isolation, Stuck-at fault and Automatic test pattern generation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Parallel computing (33.61%)
  • Distributed computing (25.21%)
  • Fault tolerance (22.69%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1997-2005)?

  • Distributed computing (25.21%)
  • Algorithm (21.01%)
  • Computer network (5.88%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

W.K. Fuchs mostly deals with Distributed computing, Algorithm, Computer network, Mobile computing and Automatic test pattern generation. A large part of his Distributed computing studies is devoted to Message logging. W.K. Fuchs works mostly in the field of Algorithm, limiting it down to topics relating to Stuck-at fault and, in certain cases, Combinational logic, Fault coverage and Speedup.

His studies in Speedup integrate themes in fields like Process and Sequential logic. His Computer network research includes elements of Wireless network and Operating system. His research ties Fault detection and isolation and Automatic test pattern generation together.

Between 1997 and 2005, his most popular works were:

  • Message logging in mobile computing (57 citations)
  • Reversible debugging using program instrumentation (38 citations)
  • RENEW: a tool for fast and efficient implementation of checkpoint protocols (35 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Operating system
  • Programming language
  • Computer network

His primary scientific interests are in Workstation, Distributed computing, Asynchronous Transfer Mode, Protocol and Computer network. His research integrates issues of Fault tolerance, Data rate, Parallel processing and Megabit in his study of Workstation. His Distributed computing research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Network architecture, Electric power distribution and Latency.

The concepts of his Asynchronous Transfer Mode study are interwoven with issues in Message Passing Interface, Message passing, State and Local area network, Operating system. His study on Protocol is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Message broker. His work deals with themes such as Stable storage and Garbage collection, which intersect with Computer network.
