When teaching recursion in an introductory computer science course, one of the most common examples used involves a tree data structure. Trees are useful in this regard as they are simple and recursive in nature, with a tree’s children also being trees,

Quick Overview of LINQ Aggregations
In order to explain the issues we encounter when parallelizing aggregations in PLINQ, let’s first take a quick look at how aggregations work in LINQ.
Aggregation is an operation that iterates over a sequence of input elements,
Sometimes very simple additions to an API or implementation make me happy. One such nicety in the CTP of PLINQ is the implementation of ToString on the concrete types that represent query operators. These implementations provide a textual representation of the query structure,
