    Since 1991, the California Institute of Technology has operated a massively parallel computer system on behalf of the concurrent supercomputing consortium (CSCC). The computer system is a distributed-memory multiple-instruction multiple-data (MIMD) system the nodes of which are connected in a two-dimensional mesh by mesh-routing chips. The system's file server, portability, acceptance tests, mode ... View full abstract»

    Linpack software, which was released in 1979, for solving linear algebra problems on high-performance computers is reviewed. The Linpack benchmark and standards development are discussed. Lapack, a linear algebra library that embodies ideas of locality of reference and data reuse, is described. The algorithms design in Lapack and the advantages and future developments of Lapack are also discussed.... View full abstract»
