"Googlers publish hundreds of technical papers that appear in journals, books, and conference and workshop proceedings every year. These deal with specific apps and engineering questions, algorithmic and data structure problems, and important theoretical problems in computer science, mathematics, and other areas, that can guide our algorithmic choices. While publications are interesting in their own right, they also offer a glance at some of the key problems we face when dealing with very large data sets and demonstrate other questions that arise in our engineering design at Google. We'd like to highlight a few of the more noteworthy papers from the first trimester of this year. The papers reflect the breadth and depth of the problems on which we work," stated Google.
"In coming weeks we'll be offering a more in-depth look at these publications," added Google. Here're some summaries.
