Dryad: Distributed DataParallel Programs from Sequential Building Blocks
 In EuroSys
, 2007
"... Dryad is a generalpurpose distributed execution engine for coarsegrain dataparallel applications. A Dryad application combines computational “vertices ” with communication “channels ” to form a dataflow graph. Dryad runs the application by executing the vertices of this graph on a set of availa ..."

We propose a small number of basic concepts that can be used to explain the architecture of faulttolerant distributed systems and we discuss a list of architectural issues that we find useful to consider when designing or examining such systems. For each issue we present known solutions and design alternatives, we discuss their relative merits and we give examples of systems which adopt one approach or the other. The aim is to introduce some order in the complex discipline of designing and understanding faulttolerant distributed systems.

Sharp Thresholds of Graph properties, and the ksat Problem
 J. Amer. Math. Soc
, 1998
"... Given a monotone graph property P , consider p (P ), the probability that a random graph with edge probability p will have P . The function d p (P )=dp is the key to understanding the threshold behavior of the property P . We show that if d p (P )=dp is small (corresponding to a nonsharp thres ..."

sharp threshold), then there is a list of graphs of bounded size such that P can be approximated by the property of having one of the graphs as a subgraph. One striking consequences of this result is that a coarse threshold for a random graph property can only happen when the value of the critical edge
Diffusion maps and coarsegraining: A unified framework for dimensionality reduction, graph partitioning and data set parameterization
 IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence
, 2006
"... We provide evidence that nonlinear dimensionality reduction, clustering and data set parameterization can be solved within one and the same framework. The main idea is to define a system of coordinates with an explicit metric that reflects the connectivity of a given data set and that is robust to ..."

Spectral segmentation with multiscale graph decomposition
 In CVPR
, 2005
"... We present a multiscale spectral image segmentation algorithm. In contrast to most multiscale image processing, this algorithm works on multiple scales of the image in parallel, without iteration, to capture both coarse and fine level details. The algorithm is computationally efficient, allowing to ..."

Analysis of multilevel graph partitioning
, 1995
"... Recently, a number of researchers have investigated a class of algorithms that are based on multilevel graph partitioning that have moderate computational complexity, and provide excellent graph partitions. However, there exists little theoretical analysis that could explain the ability of multileve ..."

Graph Coloring on Coarse Grained Multicomputers
"... We present an efficient and scalable Coarse Grained Multicomputer (CGM) coloring algorithm that colors a graph G with at most ∆+1 colors where ∆ is the maximum degree in G. This algorithm is given in two variants: a randomized and a deterministic. We show that on a pprocessor CGM model the proposed ..."

To create successful interactive systems, user interface designers need to cooperate with developers and application domain experts in an interdisciplinary team. These groups, however, usually miss a common terminology to exchange ideas, opinions, and values. This paper presents an approach that uses pattern languages to capture this knowledge in software development, HCI, and the application domain. A formal, domainindependent definition of design patterns allows for computer support without sacrificing readability, and pattern use is integrated into the usability engineering lifecycle. As an example, experience from building an awardwinning interactive music exhibit was turned into a pattern language, which was then used to inform followup projects and support HCI education.
