For example, let $@ t $@ represent the time delay between an event occurring and the same event being detected. I don't know very much about the distribution of times, but one thing I can say with certainty is …

Measuring Bernoulli Probabilities in the Presence of Delayed Reactions

I've got a sensor network - a collection of hipster detectors planted at various locations in Brooklyn. Due to power limitations, the sensors are not connected to any network on a regular basis. Rather than immediately transmitting information to the central data collector, the sensors instead wake up at random times …

Bloom filters are probabilistic data structure for determining whether an element is in a set. Such a data structure offers only two methods - add and mightContain. Google's guava library offers a nice implementation, but unfortunately this implementation (like every implementation I've found) is not concurrent. Concurrent reads are no problem …
