I am beginning an independent study in advanced data structures, with a focus on persistent and locklessly concurrent data structures.
The syllabus will be largely taken from the MIT course of the same topic:
It will also make use of Okasaki's Purely Functional Data Structures ( http://www.amazon.com/Purely-Functional-Structures-Chris-Okasaki/dp/0521663504).
A combination of these resources and a large collection of whitepapers will provide me with a corpus to study.
The record of my progress will be a series of writeup posts with the algo_study tag on this blog. This post should have this tag, which you can click on below to see subsequent posts on this study.
I will also speak at my supervising Professor's group. I'll try to get a record of this for this blog.
