An Experimental Computer Network to Support Numerical Computation
The Computer Science faculty at Rice University proposes to design and implement an experimental distributed computing system to support numerical computation. Although local networks of single user machines have already ...
PFC: A Program to Convert Fortran to Parallel Form
The recent success of vector computers like the Cray-1 and array processors such as those manufactured by Floating Point Systems has increased interest in making vector operations available to the Fortran programmer. The ...
Local Analysis of Inexact Quasi-Newton Methods
Quasi-Newton methods are well known iterative methods for solving nonlinear problems. At each stage, a system of linear equations has to be solved. However, for large scale problems, solving the linear system of equations ...
