Smarter garbage collection with simplifiers
We introduce a method for providing lightweight daemons, called simplifiers, that attach themselves to program data. If a data item has a simplifier, the simplifier may be run aut...

Seven at one stroke: results from a cache-oblivious paradigm for scalable matrix algorithms
A blossoming paradigm for block-recursive matrix algorithms is presented that, at once, attains excellent performance measured by • time, • TLB misses, • L1 misses, • L2 m...

Deconstructing process isolation
Most operating systems enforce process isolation through hardware protection mechanisms such as memory segmentation, page mapping, and differentiated user and kernel instructions....

Memory models for open-nested transactions
Open nesting provides a loophole in the strict model of atomic transactions. Moss and Hosking suggested adapting open nesting for transactional memory, and Moss and a group at Sta...

A flexible data to L2 cache mapping approach for future multicore processors
This paper proposes and studies a distributed L2 cache management approach through page-level data to cache slice mapping in a future processor chip comprising many cores. L2 cach...

Atomicity via source-to-source translation
We present an implementation and evaluation of atomicity (also known as software transactions) for a dialect of Java. Our implementation is fundamentally different from prior work...

Implicit and explicit optimizations for stencil computations
Stencil-based kernels constitute the core of many scientific applications on block-structured grids. Unfortunately, these codes achieve a low fraction of peak performance, due pr...

What do high-level memory models mean for transactions?
Many people have proposed adding transactions, or atomic blocks, to type-safe high-level programming languages. However, researchers have not considered the semantics of transacti...
