# Perks for Go (golang.org)
Perks contains the Go package quantile that computes approximate quantiles over
an unbounded data stream within low memory and CPU bounds.
For more information and examples, see:
A very special thank you and shout out to Graham Cormode (Rutgers University),
Flip Korn (AT&T Labs–Research), S. Muthukrishnan (Rutgers University), and
Divesh Srivastava (AT&T Labs–Research) for their research and publication of
[Effective Computation of Biased Quantiles over Data Streams](http://www.cs.rutgers.edu/~muthu/bquant.pdf)
Thank you, also:
* Armon Dadgar (@armon)

Q: Why not move the quantile package into the project root?
A: I want to add more packages to perks later.
