Read the following two papers and write a short summary (0.5 pages for each):
Your summary should identify the main insights and scientific contribution of the paper: what is the key idea? what is possible after the paper came out that wasn't possible before? (It is a good idea to skim some of the related work to answer these questions).
Here is some additional advice, by Kathryn S McKinley (thanks to Keith Chapman for the link).

Familiarize yourself with the test case "allred" to understand how the compilation works.
Then fill in test "checkers" to draw a checkerboard. You may need to extend
along the lines of the paper.
translate,scale,rotate and draw images that use these transforms. Use
the Pan image gallery or the paper
trait ImagesPoly as a starting point to implement the typed representation
described in Section 5. Implement the algebraic optimizations using smart constructors
described in Section 6.
Implement the common subexpression elimination optimization described in the paper.
