More on SSA

Posted on by Heidy

Well, this is quite a delayed blog post. The first month of school was extremely hectic, more so than I thought it would be. Who knew that juggling five 4000-level CS courses, a TA position, and research would be this tough? Anyhow, for my Honors Thesis, I often tend to write summaries for the papers that I read. Here are two summaries with some commentary…

So it seems as if I’m doing a bit better, I’m pretty glad that this cold is rather minor. This is possibly the last post that I’ll be writing until I return to Tallahassee. Seeing that I’ll be landing in Jacksonville first, I have to rest, repack all my things, and then drive to Tallahassee before settling down and writing any future posts. I finished…

My god! Two blog posts within the same week ? What has this world come to !? Or I’m just getting used to blogging…  After taking my sweet time adjusting to a temporary relocation in Egypt, my stagnant research progress is belatedly coming to an end. So here I am, leisurely sipping on my green tea, listening to Liszt’s tantalizing classical pieces, and reading numerous…

Learning advanced Prolog

Posted on by Heidy

I recently came back from a trip to the Mediterranean, which meant that I had no access to technology for almost a week. Although I wasn’t able to get any work done on anything related to Computer Science, I did read a few books. I finished Vonnegut’s Bluebeard and I just started Kafka’s The Trial.

Yesterday I began…

Multithreaded Parallelism: Languages and Compilers

Posted on by Heidy

In one of my previous posts, I mentioned that I’ll begin teaching myself more about Parallelism. I began with Multi-threaded Parallelism, I’m currently on the first two lectures. A lot of the lessons extensively cover material I am vaguely familiar with, which is exactly what one would expect from a graduate level course.

It was interesting learning about the various…

The power of Generators

Posted on by Heidy

It’s great to be done with finals! I’m particularly excited that I made all A’s again. I’m especially excited that I now have more time to work on my Research/Honors Thesis. So on this related note, this post is mainly aimed towards the research I’m involved in.

A significant portion of the Programming Language that is being developed in my research involves the…

First Entry!

Posted on by Heidy

A blog? Well this is something that I haven’t done since my angst teen years. I have decided to essentially create a blog to track my academic progress in Computer Science, specifically in Programming Languages and Parallel Computing. This isn’t going to necessarily be a blog pertaining to my personal academic research, it will also encapsulate any topics and papers that I find to be…
