Arnold Pears' Homepage
Welcome to my homepage at the Department of Computer Systems
at the University of Uppsala, in Sweden.
I studied at La Trobe University in Australia between 1982 and 1994
taking a BSc(Hons) in computer science and
applied mathematics and a PhD in Computer Science focussing on evaluation
of topology and memory subsystem designs for distributed shared memory (DSM)
During this time I developed a DSM multiprocessor simulation suite togther
Dr Rhys Francis and Mr Ian Mathieson.

Here is Something to think about!
First Published in 1817
by Percy Bysshe Shelley
I met a traveller from an antique land,
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal, these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandius, King of Kings:
Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away."
I worked from 1991 to 2000 at the
Computer Science Department
at La Trobe University
in Melbourne, Australia.
I was a lecturer (and from 1998-200 a senior lecturer) at
La Trobe, while paying visits in 1995 and 1998 to the Universities
of Paris XIII and Rouen in France to do research.
At Uppsala University I am a senior researcher in the
Computer Science Education Research groups.
