map
operation applies some function f
to every keyvalue tuple and produces zero or more new keyvalue tuples. A reduce
operation collects all values under the same key and performs an aggregate operation f
on those values. Notice that the operation can be applied to any subset of the tuples in any order, so it is often necessary to use an operation that is associated and commutative.

. In trial mode, the algorithm should complete its execution very quickly (in at most a few seconds) by operating on a very small portion of the input data set(s). However, it should still run through most (or, ideally, all) the code paths in the algorithm definition when it does so. This will make it possible to easily test the algorithm without running it on the entire data set.
