(LaTeX) Abstract:
The cache hierarchy prevalent in todays high performance processors
has to be taken into account in order to design algorithms which
perform well in practice. We advocates the approach to adapt external
memory algorithms to this purpose.
We exemplify this approach and the practical issues
involved by
engineering a fast priority queue suited to external memory and cached
memory which is based on $k$-way merging.
It improves previous external memory algorithms by constant factors
crucial for transferring it to cached memory.
Running in the cache
hierarchy of a workstation the algorithm is up to $4.7$ times faster
than an optimized binary heap implementation.
Keywords:
data structures, external memory
