Before moving to the main course (I'm looking at you, Multiprobe LSH), I want to focus on two Pull Requests that I think are important optimizations to the LSH module.
-The first one, [Pull Request 623][623], tries to reduce the memory footprint of `LSHSearch::ReturnIndicesFromTable()`. The original implementation would allocate N spaces for the N points, set them all to 0, then mark the points that were in the same hash bucket as a query and only keep those indices to create the candidate set. The complexity of that was $\mathcal{O}(N)$. Instead, we could simply take note of the indices of all the points we find, and only keep the unique ones. Unique runs in $\mathcal{O}(M log M)$, but if M is significantly smaller than N, we reduce both the memory used and the time needed.

-To find the sweet spot between M and N, we did extensive tuning with a number of datasets, and allowed our implementation to pick either the $\mathcal{O}(N)$ or $\mathcal{O}(MlogM)$ method for each point individually.

The second optimization, summarized in [Pull Request 675][675] was made mainly by Ryan, based on our observation that the second-level hash table implementation was too heavy. What the previous implementation did was allocate a `secondHashSize x bucketSize` armadillo matrix, with each row corresponding to the key for hash value i. The first `bucketSize` points hashed to each value were kept, and the rest were discarded. Then, the hash table was condensed.
