    The problem of judiciously and transparently redistributing the load of the system among its nodes so that overall performance is maximized is discussed. Several key issues in load distributing for general-purpose systems, including the motivations and design trade-offs for load-distributing algorithms, are reviewed. In addition, several load-distributing algorithms are described and their perform... View full abstract»

    The techniques developed by M. M. Brown and R. Sedgewick (1985) in using the Balsa algorithm-animation system are reviewed. Techniques that focus on color and sound, areas just opening up in workstation-based interactive algorithm-animation systems, are described. Color is used for encoding the state of data structures, highlighting activity, trying multiple views together, emphasizing patterns, a... View full abstract»
