Optimal Histograms with Quality Guarantees
TLDR
We present algorithms for computing optimal bucket boundaries in time proportional to the square of the number of distinct data values, for a broad class of optimality metrics. Expand

The Grid File: An Adaptable, Symmetric Multikey File Structure
TLDR
We study the dynamic aspects of file structures that treat all keys symmetrically, that is, file structures which avoid the distinction between primary and secondary keys. Expand

LIMBO: Scalable Clustering of Categorical Data
TLDR
We introduce LIMBO, a scalable hierarchical categorical clustering algorithm that builds on the Information Bottleneck (IB) framework for quantifying the relevant information preserved when clustering. Expand

Cycle Time Properties Of The FDDI Token Ring Protocol
TLDR
The FDDI Token Ring Protocol controls communication over fiber optic rings with transmission rates in the range of 100 megabits per second using a "timed token" protocol, in which non-critical messages may be transmitted only if recent movement of the token among stations has been sufficiently fast relative to a "target" token rotation time.

Balanced job bound analysis of queueing networks
TLDR
We present a new technique for obtaining performance bounds with only a few arithmetic operations (whereas an exact solution of the model requires a number of arithmetic operations proportional to the product of the number of devices and number of customers). Expand

Locality and Loop Scheduling on NUMA Multiprocessors
TLDR
An improtant issue in the parallel execution of loops is how to partition and schedule the loops onto the available processors. Expand
