Scheduling Multithreaded Computations by Work Stealing
, 1994
"... This paper studies the problem of efficiently scheduling fully strict (i.e., wellstructured) multithreaded computations on parallel computers. A popular and practical method of scheduling this kind of dynamic MIMDstyle computation is “work stealing," in which processors needing work steal com ..."

Specifically, our analysis shows that the ezpected time Tp to execute a fully strict computation on P processors using our workstealing scheduler

Motivation through the Design of Work: Test of a Theory. Organizational Behavior and Human Performance,
, 1976
"... A model is proposed that specifies the conditions under which individuals will become internally motivated to perform effectively on their jobs. The model focuses on the interaction among three classes of variables: (a) the psychological states of employees that must be present for internally motiv ..."

with before the theory can be fully applied to realworld job design problems. First, means must be developed for measuring current levels of activation of individuals in actual work settings (cf. Thayer, 1967), and for assessing the "optimal level" of activation for different individuals. Until
Activity recognition from userannotated acceleration data
, 2004
"... In this work, algorithms are developed and evaluated to detect physical activities from data acquired using five small biaxial accelerometers worn simultaneously on different parts of the body. Acceleration data was collected from 20 subjects without researcher supervision or observation. Subjects ..."

in recognition because conjunctions in acceleration feature values can effectively discriminate many activities. With just two biaxial accelerometers – thigh and wrist – the recognition performance dropped only slightly. This is the first work to investigate performance of recognition algorithms with multiple
TaintDroid: An InformationFlow Tracking System for Realtime Privacy Monitoring on Smartphones
, 2010
"... Today’s smartphone operating systems fail to provide users with adequate control and visibility into how thirdparty applications use their private data. We present TaintDroid, an efficient, systemwide dynamic taint tracking and analysis system for the popular Android platform that can simultaneous ..."

DiamondTouch: a multiuser touch technology
, 2003
"... A technique for creating touch sensitive surfaces is proposed which allows multiple, simultaneous users to interact in an intuitive fashion. Touch location information is determined independently for each user, allowing each touch on the common surface to be associated with a particular user. The su ..."

. The surface gnerates location dependent electric fields, which are capacitively coupled through the users to receivers installed in the work environment. We describe the design of these sytems and their applications. Finally, we conclude with a description of the results we have obtained with a first
The Deisgn Philosophy of the DARPA Internet Protocols
 In ACM SIGCOMM

The Intemet protocol suite, TCP/IP, was first proposed fifteen years ago, It was developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), and has been used widely in military and commercial systems. While there have been papers and specifications that describe how the protocols work, it i ..."

An Efficient Boosting Algorithm for Combining Preferences
, 1999
"... The problem of combining preferences arises in several applications, such as combining the results of different search engines. This work describes an efficient algorithm for combining multiple preferences. We first give a formal framework for the problem. We then describe and analyze a new boosting ..."

Modular elliptic curves and Fermat’s Last Theorem
 ANNALS OF MATH
, 1995
"... When Andrew John Wiles was 10 years old, he read Eric Temple Bell’s The Last Problem and was so impressed by it that he decided that he would be the first person to prove Fermat’s Last Theorem. This theorem states that there are no nonzero integers a, b, c, n with n> 2 such that a n + b n = c n ..."
