"-- week of 6.046. Woohoo! The topic of this final week, among our advanced topics, is cache oblivious algorithms. This is a particularly fun area, one dear to my heart because I've done a lot of research in this area. This is an area co-founded by Professor Leiserson. So, in fact, the first context in which I met Professor Leiserson was him giving a talk about cache oblivious algorithms at WADS '99 in Vancouver I think. Yeah, that has to be an odd year. So, I learned about cache oblivious algorithms then, started working in the area, and it's been a fun place to play. But this topic in some sense was also developed in the context of this class. I think there was one semester, probably also '98-'99 where all of the problem sets were about cache oblivious algorithms...
