    The Japanese Super-Speed Computer project, recently begun, has generated pressure for a response in the United States and other countries. The background for the Japanese project is the world-wide effort to computerize four hundred years of science, in support of industrial applications of science. In the United States, a number of barriers are slowing progress of the computerization process. The ... View full abstract»

    Supercomputers play important roles in various areas of science. But perhaps the greatest value of them lies in their ability to help scientists gain insight or understanding. They do this by enabling scientists to treat complexity in models that is not otherwise tractable, by enabling scientists to study phenomena that are difficult to study experimentally and by helping to test theory.

    High-speed computers with large memories are vital to magnetic fusion energy research. Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD), transport, equilibrium, Vlasov, particle, and Fokker-Planck codes that model plasma behavior play an important role in designing experimental hardware and interpreting the resulting data, as well as in advancing plasma theory itself. The size, architecture, and software of supercompute... View full abstract»

    We address the task of doing computational physics problems on a computer which has a highly parallel architecture. Our experience has been gained on the ICL DAP, the first commercially available parallel processor with over a thousand processing elements, but the results have relevance to all computers of this generic class. The DAP itself is described, along with some aspects of the extension to... View full abstract»

    Factors motivating the development of computational aerodynamics as a discipline are traced back to the limitations of the tools available to the aerodynamicist before the development of digital computers. Governing equations in exact and approximate forms are discussed together with approaches to their numerical solution. Example results obtained from the successively refined forms of the equatio...

    The supercomputers of the 1980's have already impacted large-scale computation. This paper discusses the status and anticipated impact of supercomputers on finite-element analysis which is the primary tool for structural analysis and is also very useful in other areas of engineering analysis. The initial impact has been the significant reduction in turnaround time for large problems and the corres... View full abstract»

  • The impact of vector processors on petroleum reservoir simulation

    For three decades the developers of petroleum reservoir simulators have confronted with a dilemma: cost versus stability. The computational work of the fully implicit method grows like the cube of the number of phases when direct solution methods are used. Thus a single iteration of a fully implicit three-phase black-oil model could cost 27 times more than a single IMPES iteration. The advent of v... View full abstract»

    There are now several laboratories worldwide which routinely perform three-dimensional (3D) physical modeling of acoustic phenomena of interest to seismologists. Corresponding computerized mathematical models have been limited to two dimensions on conventional computers due to the immense computational requirements of accurate full-size problems. The introduction of high-performance vector process... View full abstract»

    Very large scale integration (VLSI) has evolved at an enormous rate, progressing from hundreds of components on an integrated circuit (IC) in the 1960's to a million components on a chip in the foreseeable future. This paper reviews some of the computer-aided design (CAD) tools that are essential for VLSI technology development and circuit design and that also require large amounts of computer res...

    Pipelining has been used to implement efficient, high-speed vector computers. It is also an effective method for implementing multiprocessors. The Heterogeneous Element Processor (HEP) built by Denelcor Incorporated is the first commercially available computer system to use pipelining to implement multiple processes. This paper introduces the architecture and programming environment of the HEP and... View full abstract»

    A "serial" or "one channel" approach to the design of an M-ary CPFSK (CPMFSK) generator of arbitrary modulation index has been described. Uniformly spaced quadrant samples of the signaling sinusoids are stored in a ROM, appropriately retrieved by means of a simple digital processor and finally passed through a digital-to-analog converter (DAC) followed by a discretely tracking low-pass filter (LPF...

  • A simple method to improve the transients in adaptive systems

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):131 - 134
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (278 KB)

    A method, based on classical optimization techniques, is proposed to improve the adaptation transients in adaptive systems. Its philosophy consists basically in using a modified adaptation mechanism which alternately works in a priori mode, in which the optimization-correction horizon is slid forward in time, and in a posteriori mode, in which, by using an equivalent system, the parameters (and th...

    Realization of a parallel multiplier has been considered in a paper by Dadda [1] who has proposed various schemes to get the product using (3, 2), (2, 2) counters, and carry look-ahead adders. The complexity of the carry look-ahead adder in terms of number of two-input gates increases with the length of the adder which in effect reduces the speed. This letter presents an approach that reduces the ... View full abstract»

  • Switching functions and solid geometrical modeler

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):136 - 137
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (159 KB)

    A novel, set-operations rather than geometry-oriented, solid geometrical modeler is proposed. The modeler is based upon the representation of objects by switching functions and thus is capable to perform the set (Boolean) operations very efficiently. The graphical support and communication with the real world are provided via the extended three-dimensional Karnaugh map. View full abstract»
