Parametric polymorphism, also known as generics, is an abstraction that lets programmers define code that behaves independently of the types of values it operates on. Generics is a useful abstraction to enable code reuse and improve the maintainability of software projects.

Popular deep learning frameworks prioritize computing the average mini-batch gradient. Yet, other quantities such as its variance or many approximations to the Hessian can be computed efficiently, and at the same time as the gradient mean. They are of great interest to researchers and practitioners, but implementing them is often burdensome or inefficient.

Given a square matrix B' over a (commutative) ring S, the null ideal N_0(B') is the ideal consisting of all polynomials f in S[X] for which f(B')=0. In the case that S=R/J is the residue class ring of a ring R modulo an ideal J, we can equivalently study the so-called J-ideals

N_J(B) =  { f in  R[X]  |  f(B) in M_n(J) }

Memory management in multicore systems is a well studied area. Many approaches to memory management have been developed and tuned with specific hardware architectures in mind, capitalizing on hardware characteristics to improve performance. In this thesis, the focus is on memory allocation and reclamation in multicore systems.
