  • Publication number: 20190227803
    Abstract: Instructions are executed in a pipeline of a processor, where each instruction is associated with a particular context. A first storage stores branch prediction information characterizing results of branch instructions previously executed. The first storage is dynamically partitioned into partitions of one or more entries. Dynamically partitioning includes updating a partition to include an additional entry by associating the additional entry with a particular subset of one or more contexts. A predicted branch result is determined based on at least a portion of the branch prediction information. An actual branch result provided based on an executed branch instruction is used to update the branch prediction information. Providing a predicted branch result for a first branch instruction includes retrieving a first entry from a first partition based at least in part on an identified first subset of one or more contexts associated with the first branch instruction.

  • Publication number: 20020023052
    Abstract: A method for transacting exchanges of agricultural products provides an agricultural producer with a guaranteed level of revenue. With guaranteed revenue, the producer greatly reduces the risks associated with the agriculture business, and obtains both yield and price protection. In exchange for the guaranteed level of revenue, the producer agrees to several conditions designed to provide value to the guarantor and reduce the guarantor's risk. In this manner, the guarantor and producer both benefit from practice of the method. The producer may agree to deliver all or a portion of its output, for example, to an outlet specified by the guarantor. In addition, the producer may agree to purchase all or a portion of its agricultural inputs, e.g., seeds, fertilizer, and agricultural chemicals, from a source specified by the guarantor. The producer also may agree to a number of producing conditions designed to maximize yield and marketability, such as the use of particular hybrids and pesticides.
