This directory contains some of the research papers associated with the 
ROSE project over the last several years.  For numerous reasons, we feel 
that the latest papers are the best papers, this is likely typical
of any ambitious project; but we have included everything for
completeness.  It is hoped that the underlying goal within each paper
of supporting the use of high-level abstractions will be clear together with
our attempts to address the performance issues required for the use of 
high-level abstractions within scientific computing.  A selectedpapers.bib 
is included to make it easy to reference the latest papers.

Brief descriptions of the several papers that we have included:

    This paper is about the optimization of unstructured grid applications and represent
    preparitory work for future automated transformations specific to unstructured grid
    applications within DOE using ROSE.

    This paper covers the details of optimizing object-oriented abstractions using ROSE.
    Unfortuantely, ROSE is not mentioned anywhere in the paper, a ridiculous oversight,
    but oh well.  The subject is the optimization, not the ROSE compiler infrastructure.
    This paper covers the architecture of ROSE as a project.  It is one of the best
    and most up to date papers on ROSE.
    This paper is the informal proceedings version and demonstrates the optimization 
    of generalized container abstractions and
    is related to Active Library research (or so I understand).  It is also related to 
    Telescoping Language research.  The paper demonstrates a few of the newest features 
    in ROSE and has served an an introduction for the authors into the optimization of 
    the STL library more generally.
    This paper demonstrates the use of ROSE to recognize OpenMP pragmas and, using the
    Nanos OpenMP runtime library, build a subset of an OpenMP specific compiler for C++.
    This paper is specific to compile-time optimization of array classes.  It demonstrates
    what was at the time the most current work on the compile-time optimization of an
    array class library.  ROSE is more general, but this paper is very specific to
    the optimization of a single library.
    This paper was an introduction to the work being done at the time on ROSE complete
    with a more detailed motivation for compile-time optimization of specific libraries.
    This is one of the first papers on ROSE presented at CPC2001 and later updated for
    publication into the Journal of Concurrency, Practice, and Experience.
    This was a paper which specified some elements of what later became the string based
    AST rewrite mechanism used in ROSE.
    This paper describes the development of a tool, ROSETTA, which build object-oriented
    Intermediate Representations (IRs) for compilers.  It is a tool used within ROSE to
    build the SAGE III IR which we use internally with the EDG front-end.  It is specific
    to details of the internal ROSE compiler infrastructure.
    This paper present preliminary work on the compile-time optimization of array 
    class libraries. 
    Discusses the different approaches to the
    optimization of array class libraries.  Optimization of array class libraries led 
    to the development of ROSE as a project, though ROSE is not at all specific to array 
    class libraries and addresses the optimization of libraries generally.  This paper
    can be helpful in understanding what work was done using language template 
    features within C++ before attempting to address the optimization issues more
    generally at compile time. Prior work started on ROSE had been abandoned because 
    of the perceived significant advantages of template meta-programming techniques
    for scientific computing.  Several papers on the details of template use were 
    written, this is the most complete of them.  It is included with these papers to
    provide a bit of perspective (currently historical).
