Thus, in many cases evaluating different interesting workloads empirically is unavoidable.

In such cases, 100 pages of setup, methodology, and analysis are a feature, and not necessarily a sign of mediocrity.

BANGALORE: While his classmates struggled to solve a simple mathematical problem, Tathagat Avatar Tulsi would solve it in a jiffy.

This child prodigy completed his high school when he was just nine years old.

Perhaps, bagging the record for being the youngest Ph D holder with the shortest thesis will be as easy for him.

I read that John Nash had a very short Ph D Dissertation. See this link: there other famous people with such short Ph D theses? Please edit the question to limit it to a specific problem with enough detail to identify an adequate answer. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question.Continuing the trend, Tulsi completed a doctoral degree at 21 from the physics department, IISc.He has also applied for the `youngest doctorate (Ph D) of India' and `shortest Ph D thesis' in the Limca Book of Records. Then he submitted his thesis on `Generalizations of the quantum search algorithm', which is just 33 pages long."Despite the short length, the thesis is innovative enough to qualify as a Ph D work.There is a great danger of overlooking substantial flaws in brief descriptions.So, yes, mediocrity can lead to inflated sections, but a good Ph D committee will not led that slide.It is impossible in the general case (halting problem), and really, really hard to do even in specialized cases.If you think otherwise, the field of worst-case execution time analysis awaits your contribution eagerly (try modeling L1 and L2 instruction and data cache interactions in a multicore CPU).On the other hand, improving the performance of Linux page cache by 5% on some workloads will clearly be accompanied with a hundred pages of methodology explanations and performance measurements.Interestingly there are lots of long and brilliant dissertations - Chris Okasaki's functional data structures thesis comes to mind.If you don't enjoy it, you won't practice it, and if you won't practice it you won't be good at it.I've known CS-theory people - who I know are very bright - say similar things about systems research.
