Abstract:

The long term goals of this research activity are derived from concurrent computing with emphasis on numerical algorithms that support a variety of scientific applications. Among the applications of immediate interest are signal processing, high statistical methods such as the bootstrap. The shorter term focus has been the refinement and enhancement of the concurrent computing environment itself and the numerical algorithms that form the foundation for the applications. The computer systems that support this research use hardware manufactured by Intel -- with the 8086 cpu and the 8087 floating point processor at the heart of each node. The nodes are contained in workstations with up to seven Workers and a Manager in a workstation that can operate independently or can be linked together during execution. Worker structure and memory are configurable to support experiments conducted in the course of this research. Keywords Parallel processing Synchronizationelectronics.
