Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to explore the viability of implementing mathematical programming algorithms on minicomputers. We feel that the minicomputer explosion presents many exciting research challenges in terms of both identifying and matching appropriate algorithms and applications for such hardware. This paper partially examines these issues by comparing the computational performance of two shortest path algorithms on four very distinct types of computer hardware. Author
