We will talk about the notion of the sign-rank of a {-1, 1}-valued matrix, which measures the robustness of it's rank under sign preserving changes. We will first see a neat geometric interpretation of the sign-rank, and then see how showing an u

Groebner basis for a multivariate polynomial ideal is a finite basis of polynomials that has many useful properties. Large memory requirements and computation time for most practical problems hinder the use of Groebner basis in many areas.

Abstract: Weak memory adds many behaviors in a concurrent program that are unexpected by the most programmers. The weak memory behaviors can be removed by placing memory fences in the programs.

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.
