'Static Analysis and Program Optimization Using Dataflow Analysis'.

Held in MC 4041, on 2015-11-23, at 6:00 PM.


An introduction to some basic issues with optimization of imperative programs by Sean Harrap, beginning with traditional methods such as tree traversals.

This will be followed by a more powerful solution to these problems, providing an overview of its mathematical foundations, and then describing how it can be used to express optimizations simply and elegantly.

Some familiarity with the second year CS core (CS245, CS241, MATH239) will be assumed.
