Student Work presented at SIAM PP12

 Jeff Blanchard attended SIAM PP12 (otherwise known as the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics 2012 Conference on Parallel Processing for High Perfromance Computing) in Savannagh, Georgia, February 15-17, 2012. During the conference he presented joint work with majors Tolu Alabi '13, Brad Gordon '12, and Russel Steinbach '12. The talk Fast k-Selection Algorithms for Graphics Processing Units and a submitted paper by the same name are the result of work begun during a summer MAP where the group developed two new algorithms for finding the order statistics on a GPU.
