We consider a system of $N$~parallel single-server queues with unit exponential service rates and a single dispatcher where tasks arrive as a Poisson process of rate $\lambda(N)$.

The threshold model is widely used to study the propagation of opinions and technologies in social networks. In this model individuals adopt the new behavior based on how many neighbors have already chosen it.

How should a group of friends decide which movie to watch together or which restaurant to go for dinner? How should a municipal corporation decide which set of public projects to undertake?

Detecting or estimating a dense community from a network graph offers a rich set of problems involving the interplay of algorithms, complexity, and information limits.

Karl Weierstrass showed that given a continuous function $f$ on $[0,1]$ and an epsilon positive, there is a polynomial $p$ such that it is uniformly epsilon close to $f$ on $[0,1]$.

Peephole optimizations perform local rewriting to improve the efficiency of the code input to the compiler.

We are in the midst of a major data revolution. The total data generated by humans from the dawn of civilization until the turn of the new millennium is now being generated every two days.

Abstract: In many programming languages, values have an associated type that the compilers enforces. For example, adding a value of type INTEGER to a value of type STRING will be flagged as an error by these compilers.

Abstract: The Hamming and the edit metrics are two common notions of measuring distances between pairs of strings $x,y$ lying in the Boolean hypercube.
