Green Threads Explained in 200 Lines of Rust
This book aims to explain green threads by using a small example where we implement a simple but working program where we use our own green threads to execute code.

>> Compare this to number theory, where every interesting extant problem appears... | Hacker News
I don't often come here to comment but as someone in progress on an original research masters in number theory I can say this is utter bullshit. I assume your 'interesting' qualification (somehow) excludes obvious candidates like Landau's problems [0]. Some examples. I was taught about the ABC conjecture as an undergrad. You can easily teach the Brun sieve [1] method of working out that the sum of the reciprocal of the twin primes converges...

Companion webpage to the book "Mathematics for Machine Learning"
We are in the process of writing a book on Mathematics for Machine Learning that motivates people to learn mathematical concepts. The book is not intended to cover advanced machine learning techniques because there are already plenty of books doing this. Instead, we aim to provide the necessary mathematical skills to read those other books.

Drawing Lines is Hard
"Drawing lines might not sound like rocket science, but it’s damn difficult to do well in OpenGL, particularly WebGL. Here I explore a few different techniques for 2D and 3D line rendering, and accompany each with a small canvas demo."

Memory Allocators 101 | James Golick
"For the last few weeks, I've been working on a couple of patches to tcmalloc, Google's super high performance memory allocator. I'm going to post about them soon, but first I thought it would be cool to give some background about what a memory allocator actually does. So, if you've ever wondered what happens when you call malloc or free, read on." HN:

V8: Behind the Scenes (February Edition feat. A tale of TurboFan) | Benedikt Meurer
"February (2017) has been an exciting and very, very busy month for me. As you have probably heard, we’ve finally announced that we will launch the Ignition+TurboFan pipeline in Chrome 59. So despite running late, and not making it for February actually, I’d like to take the time to reflect on the TurboFan tale a bit, and tell my story here. Remember, that everything you read here is my very personal opinion and doesn’t reflect the opinion of V8, Chrome or Google."

[1701.07274] Deep Reinforcement Learning: An Overview
"We give an overview of recent exciting achievements of deep reinforcement learning (RL). We start with background of deep learning and reinforcement learning, as well as introduction of testbeds. Next we discuss Deep Q-Network (DQN) and its extensions, asynchronous methods, policy optimization, reward, and planning. After that, we talk about attention and memory, unsupervised learning, and learning to learn. Then we discuss various applications of RL, including games, in particular, AlphaGo, robotics, spoken dialogue systems (a.k.a. chatbot), machine translation, text sequence prediction, neural architecture design, personalized web services, healthcare, finance, and music generation. We mention topics/papers not reviewed yet. After listing a collection of RL resources, we close with discussions."

[1609.01421] Struggles with the Continuum
"Our assumption that spacetime is a continuum leads to many challenges in mathematical physics. Singularities, divergent integrals and the like threaten many of our favorite theories, from Newtonian gravity to classical electrodynamics, quantum electrodynamics and the Standard Model. In general relativity, singularities are intimately connected to some of the theory's most dramatic successful predictions. We survey these problems and the large amount of work that has gone into dealing with them."

Locking in WebKit | WebKit
Back in August 2015 we replaced all spinlocks and OS-provided mutexes in WebKit with the new WTF::Lock (WTF stands for Web Template Framework). We also replaced all OS-provided condition variables with WTF::Condition. These new primitives have some cool properties...
