And feel for all my woes,
And as our little life should run

In science:

As a data-oblivious algorithm, our randomized Shellsort method is a Monte Carlo algorithm (e.g., see [34, 35]), in that it always runs in the same amount of time but can sometimes fail to sort.
Randomized Shellsort: A Simple Oblivious Sorting Algorithm
Such a data-dependent version of randomized Shellsort would run in O(n log n) time with very high probability; hence, it would provide the first version of Shellsort that provably runs in O(n log n) time with very high probability.
Randomized Shellsort: A Simple Oblivious Sorting Algorithm
This allows us to easily prove the following: Lemma 2.2 Given an m-near-sorted array A of size n, and a 2m-sorter S , running in T (m) time, a S -shaker pass over A wil l sort A in O(T (m)n/m) time.
Randomized Shellsort: A Simple Oblivious Sorting Algorithm
We can then use Pratt’s version of (deterministic) Shellsort as a 2α polylog(n)-sorter, S , in a S -shaker postprocessing pass over A, which will run in O(n(log log n)2 ) time and (by Lemma 2.2) will complete the sorting of A.
Randomized Shellsort: A Simple Oblivious Sorting Algorithm
Replace small closed 2-discs in A(cid:48) around consecutive intersection points (with opposite signs) of A(cid:48) along J with a cylinder whose boundary components are the boundaries of the two 2-discs and which runs in a neighborhood of J .

Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA): The input catalogue and star-galaxy separation
For an advice function α : N → {0, 1}∗ , we say that L ∈ P/α if there is a Turing machine M such that for every x ∈ {0, 1}∗ , M (x, α(|x|)) runs in time polynomial in the length of x and M (x, α(|x|)) accepts iff x ∈ L.
Derandomizing from Random Strings
Similarly, we define EXP/α where we allow the machine M to run in exponential time in length of x on the input (x, α(|x|)).
