    We introduce a theoretical algorithm and its practical version to perform a decentralized detection of the global convergence of parallel asynchronous iterative algorithms. We prove that, even if the algorithm is completely decentralized, the detection of global convergence is achieved on one processor under the classical conditions. The proposed algorithm is very useful in the context of grid com... View full abstract»

    In this work, we present a new approach to distributed sensor data fusion (SDF) systems in multitarget tracking, called TSDF (Tessellated SDF), centered around a geographical partitioning (tessellation) of the data. A functional decomposition divides SDF into components that can be assigned to processing units, parallelizing the processing. The tessellation implicitly defines the set of tracks pot...

    This work presents an efficient mapping scheme for the multilayer perceptron (MLP) network trained using back-propagation (BP) algorithm on network of workstations (NOWs). Hybrid partitioning (HP) scheme is used to partition the network and each partition is mapped on to processors in NOWs. We derive the processing time and memory space required to implement the parallel BP algorithm in NOWs. The ... View full abstract»

    This work presents a Vl-attached database storage architecture to improve database transaction rates. More specifically, we examine how Vl-based interconnects can be used to improve I/O path performance between a database server and a storage subsystem. To facilitate the interaction between client applications and a Vl-aware storage system, we design and implement a software layer called DSA, that... View full abstract»

    Optical communication, in particular, wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM) technique, has become a promising networking choice to meet ever-increasing demands on bandwidth from emerging bandwidth-intensive computing/communication applications, such as data browsing in the World Wide Web, multimedia conferencing, e-commerce, and video-on-demand services. As optics becomes a major networking media... View full abstract»

  • A two-level directory architecture for highly scalable cc-NUMA multiprocessors

    One important issue the designer of a scalable shared-memory multiprocessor must deal with is the amount of extra memory required to store the directory information. It is desirable that the directory memory overhead be kept as low as possible, and that it scales very slowly with the size of the machine. Unfortunately, current directory architectures provide scalability at the expense of performan... View full abstract»

    The architectural landscape of high-performance computing stretches from superscalar uniprocessor to explicitly parallel systems, to dedicated hardware implementations of algorithms. Single-purpose hardware can achieve the highest performance and uniprocessors can be the most programmable. Between these extremes, programmable and reconfigurable architectures provide a wide range of choice in flexi... View full abstract»
