Today, "The Morning Paper" examines the CACM Research Highlights article, "Stochastic Program Optimization," which presents the STOKE optimizer. A traditional optimisation phase for a compiler factors the optimisation problem into small subproblems that can be solved independently, but STOKE can consider the whole program and find solutions that can only be obtained through, for example, “the simultaneous consideration of mutually dependent issues such as instruction selection, register allocation, and target-dependent optimisation.”

(It's a brave new word, we're living in.)

But in an age of easy global communication, Royen’s proof went unrecognized for years.
