>> Before Meeting

Tasks accomplished :

  • Submitted the RPA form to Shelley.
  • Updated about the thesis work.
  • Prepared for the RPA meeting.

>> After Meeting

Summary: Discussions about the formal chapter headings and the sub-headings. First formal chapter to be Euler diagrams along with the graphs. The sub-sections are

Concrete syntax (definitions of the diagrams along with an example, wellformedness properties (their definitions) )

abstract syntax (3.1 and 3.2 of present thesis work, link to the concrete syntax, definitions of when abstract syntax + describes a concrete diagram)

The second chapter to be General drawing algorithm. The sub-sections are transformation rules, decompositions and recompositions and then the general algorithm.

Action Plans – Mithileysh

  • Plan the formal chapter.
  • Work on the concrete syntax.
  • Prepare well for the RPA meeting (Think about the questions they will be asking).

Action Plans – Supervisors

  • Help in guiding through the Concrete syntax.
