[Links of the Day] 20/07/2017 : Statistics lectures notes, HA transactions, Capability Models for Manycore Memory Systems


  • Lectures on Statistics : 2003 lecture note on statistics, pretty much cover all the basics of what you need to know about stats.
  • Highly Available Transactions : the authors looks at the state of the database transactions system and well like any good scientist their conclusion is that there is more research to be done. But more seriously, highly available transactions and system need to be perfected and new semantics with hybrid systems are required to be developed in order to ensure the availability of transactions. 
  • Capability Models for Manycore Memory Systems : Programming for manycores system is hard, optimising them is even harder. In this paper, the authors try to design models that help programmers to deliver efficient software for these type of hardware architecture. [slides]
