Compare and Contrast
Compare and contrast these three problems and describe a parallel algorithm for each one.
Return an int total count of integers in the input array greater than 10.

Return an int[] of prefix counts of integers in the input array greater than 10.

Return an int[] of only integers in the input array greater than 10 in the input order.

Weird Parallel Merge
Say we pick the median from the smaller sorted array and run binary search to find the split point in the larger sorted array. Give a recurrence for the worst-case span of parallel merge.
