    The k-D tree is a well-studied acceleration data structure for ray tracing. It is used to organize primitives in a scene to allow efficient execution of intersection operations between rays and the primitives. The highest ...

    In the multicore era, sequential programs need to be refactored for parallelism. The next version of Java provides ParallelArray, an array data structure that supports parallel operations over the array elements. For ...

    Object-oriented frameworks can make parallel programming easier by providing generic parallel algorithms such as map, reduce, or scan, and letting the user fill in the details with sequential code. However, such frameworks ...
