Computer Science Seminar-Parallel balanced binary trees using just join

10:00 – 10:50 am
209 Computer Science Building
Computer Science Seminar
With the evolution of hardware and growth in the volume of data, parallelism has become imperative and the key to improving performance. As such, it is of great interest to have simple and efficient parallel algorithms and data structures for programmers to easily organize and process data. My research designs such simple and efficient parallel algorithms and data structures, with provable guarantees in theory, good performance in practice, as well as simplicity in programming. In particular, this talk will introduce my work on parallel tree structures, that are highly-parallelized, safe for concurrency, theoretically work-efficient, supporting a wide range of functions and augmentations and multi-versioned. The tree structure is also implemented in a C++ library called PAM, and applied to various areas such as computational geometry and databases.
Bio: Yihan Sun is currently a Ph.D. student in Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Prof. Guy Blelloch. Prior to that, she received her Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Tsinghua University, working on data mining and social network analysis. Her research interests broadly lie in the theory and practice of parallel algorithms, data structures, as well as their implementations and applications.

Research On Tap: The Formula for Happiness in Russian Fairy Tales

Posted by on January 30, 2019

Dr. Irina V. Ivliyeva, Department of Arts Languages and Philosophy
Wednesday, February 13 at 6:00 p.m.
Public House Brewing Company’s Rolla Brewpub Loft

Title: “The Formula for Happiness in Russian Fairy Tales”
Abstract: Everybody has a special place in their heart for fairy tales from their childhood, no matter what culture they are from. Focusing on discovering the secret of happiness, rather than on the recipe for success, Russian fairy tales show how an average (undereducated, weak, or disadvantaged) person overcomes all obstacles to “live happily ever after to a ripe old age”. After a brief review of the history of Russian oral tradition, which was influenced by a unique blend of Christian and Pagan beliefs, Ivliyeva will present the most famous Russian fairy tale collections, discuss their educational nature, and examine the social and psychological values they reflect. Examples include the use of magic numbers and patterns, symbolic colors, fixed epithets, transformation, and the role of animals.
