Modern computer systems have an increasingly complex memory architecture, where memory is organized hierarchically into layers of increasing size but decreasing speed: registers, several cache levels, main memory, and disk (or other external memory devices). An effective use of this memory hierarchy is often essential to obtain the best performance. Our research in this area focusses on algorithms with provable guarantees on their I/O- and caching behavior.
