int new_sum(int sum, bool& terminated)

Find the max and min of sum of all permutations of [1..9] satisfying the following condition:

    == a[1] + a[2] + a[3]
    == a[3] + a[4] + a[5]
    == a[5] + a[6] + a[7]
    == a[7] + a[8]
    where sum = a[0] + a[1]

Haskell lab

0. Warmup


Hoogle is the search engine for Haskell functions. It supports searching by function names and types.

For example, you plan to use parMap, but forget its type. You could just type parMap in Hoogle, and the search result would look like:

View hello.stp
global gc_major
global gc_minor
global gc_major_count
global gc_minor_count
global stat
global count_stat
probe process("/home/albert/github/otp/bin/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/beam.smp").mark("gc_major__start")
gc_major[user_string($arg1)] = gettimeofday_ms() - gc_major[user_string($arg1)]

DrRacket provides rudimentary features for Racket programming, you could experiment them by launch DrRacket directly. Some particularly interesting/useful ones are highlighted here:

View cache.c
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <time.h>
// copied from
void insertion_sort (int *a, int n) {
int i, j, t;
for (i = 1; i < n; i++) {
t = a[i];
for (j = i; j > 0 && t < a[j - 1]; j--) {

How STM interacts with locks in kappa

I would firstly assume sync block has the same semantics of pthread_mutex_lock. When the execution outside of transactions reaches sync block, it would gain exclusive access to this critical region, and all other executions, either inside or outside transactions, are blocked if they try to enter the critical region.

When the execution inside of transactions reaches sync block, it would gain non-exclusive access to this critical region, which could be obtained by any other executions inside transactions, but executions outside transactions would be blocked.

In other words, the mutex lock inside the transactions becomes a reader lock, and mutex lock outside the transactions becomes a writer lock.

Block or Continuation, that's the question

  • Block: Easy to read, but waste CPU cycles
import java.util.*;
import java.util.concurrent.*;
public class block {
static ForkJoinPool pool;
static Server s;
static Client c1, c2;
static volatile int x = 0;
