Abstract:

This project concerns the design and analysis of algorithms to be run in a processor-rich environment. The authors focus primarily on algorithms that requires no global control and that can be run on systems with only local connections among processors. They investigate the properties of these algorithms both theoretically and experimentally. The experimental work is done on the ZMOB, a working parallel computer operated by the Laboratory for Parallel Computation of the Computer Science Department at the University of Maryland. To give this work direction, they focused on two areas Dense problems from numerical linear algebra and The iterative and direct solution of sparse linear systems. Author
