Abstract:

This is the final technical report on the project Advanced Parallel Systems. The objective of this project was to explore algorithms and their implementation for future advanced parallel systems. These systems are assumed to have hundreds or even thousands of processors and to be able to concentrate their computing power on one or a small number of tasks. Three principal questions were explored a Are there algorithms for the crucial applications which have enough parallelism to allow the power of the advanced parallel systems to be fully exploited b What languages and implementation tools are needed for efficient programming of the algorithms c What are the relative performances of different algorithm types Of different architecture types Of different implementation languages We state the principal problem for four areas and then list the papers, conference presentations, theses and technical reports for each area 1 Analysis of the Performance of Future Computations 2 Benchmarking Existing Computations 3 Control of Parallel Computations 4 Parallel Algorithms for Physical Problems.
