Imagine it is 1977 and you have decided to adopt Boyer and Moore’s new string
pattern matching algorithm for use in a word processor that you develop and
maintain. In this paper, you will write a short argument for a non-technical
audience to convince them of the strengths of Boyer-Moore over existing approaches
and the benefits that it will bring to users of your word processor. You should
support any claims you makee with clear justifications (e.g., mathematical
calculations, brief logical proofs, citations to the state of the art in computer
hardware/software for the time period).
You should write your paper for a non-technical audience. While you can assume your
audience is familiar with computers and word processing/text editting, you can not
assume that they have any knowldege of computer programming. Your additional
justifications can (and should) be technical in nature, but the primary body of
your paper should target a non-technical audience.
Your paper should be 1 page double-spaced using 1 inch margins and 12pt Times New
Roman font. This is especially short by design to force you to make very concise
arguments. You may include additional pages (a max of 2 additional pages, for a
total of 3) to account for references and justifications as described above. Please
keep in mind the following points of what would make for a good paper:
* The paper presents a clear and convincing argument that favors Boyer-Moore over
* All claims made in support of this argument are backed up by valid and verifiable
* The paper makes valid assumptions about the technical knowledge of the audience
(i.e., that they have no assumed programming or technical knowledge, an average
consumer). Note that, again, the justifications of the claims in your paper should
be detailed and technical and nature and are not bound by the same assumptions
about audience as the main body of hte paper.
