    The availability of high-level design entry tooling is crucial for the viability of any reconfigurable SoC architecture. This paper presents a template generation algorithm. The objective of template generation step is to extract functional equivalent structures, i.e. templates, from a control data flow graph. By profiling the graph, the algorithm generates all the possible templates and the corresponding matches. Using unique serial numbers and circle numbers, the algorithm can find all distinct templates with multiple outputs. A new type of graph (hydragraph) that can cope with multiple outputs is introduced. The generated templates pepresented by the hydragraph are not limited in shapes, i.e., we can find templates with multiple outputs or multiple sinks

    A stationary free boundary problem modeling electrostatic MEMS

    A free boundary problem describing small deformations in a membrane based model of electrostatically actuated MEMS is investigated. The existence of stationary solutions is established for small voltage values. A justification of the widely studied narrow-gap model is given by showing that steady state solutions of the free boundary problem converge toward stationary solutions of the narrow-gap model when the aspect ratio of the device tends to zero

    A simple scalar coupled map lattice model for excitable media is intensively analysed in this paper. This model is used to explain the excitability of excitable media, and a Hopf-like bifurcation is employed to study the different spatio-temporal patterns produced by the model. Several basic rules for the construction of these kinds of models are proposed. Illustrative examples demonstrate that the sCML model is capable of generating complex spatiotemporal patterns
