    Including multiple cores on a single chip has become the dominant mechanism for scaling processor performance. Exponential growth in the number of cores on a single processor is expected to lead in a short time to mainstream computers with hundreds of cores. Scalable implementations of parallel algorithms will be necessary in order to achieve improved single-application performance on such process... View full abstract»

    Memory hierarchy optimizations have been studied by researchers in many areas including compilers, numerical linear algebra, and theoretical computer science. However, the approaches taken by these communities are very different. The compiler community has invested considerable effort in inventing loop transformations like loop permutation and tiling, and in the development of simple analytical mo... View full abstract»

    Databases are an important workload for modern commodity microarchitectures. Achieving the best performance requires that careful attention be paid to the underlying architecture, including instruction and data cache usage, data layout, branch prediction, and multithreading. Specialized commodity microarchitectures, such as graphics cards and network processors, have also been investigated as effe... View full abstract»
