Misconceptions of Risk, 9780470683880 (0470683880), John Wiley & Sons, 2010

The risk discipline is young and there are a number of ideas, perspectives and conceptions of risk out there. A number of such common conceptions of risk are examined in the book, related to the risk concept, risk assessments, uncertainty analyses, risk perception, the precautionary principle, risk management and decision making under uncertainty. The Author discusses these concepts, their strengths and weaknesses, and concludes that they are often better judged as misconceptions of risk than conceptions of risk.

Automatic Algorithm Recognition and Replacement: A New Approach to Program Optimization
Automatic Algorithm Recognition and Replacement: A New Approach to Program Optimization
Optimizing compilers have a fundamental problem. No matter how powerful their optimizations
are, they are no substitute for good application algorithms. Consider the case of
sorting. For sufficiently large data sets, a merge sort algorithm compiled with a less powerful
optimizer will always out-perform a selection sort algorithm
