The impact of instruction-level parallelism on multiprocessor performance and simulation methodology
Current microprocessors exploit high levels of instruction-level parallelism (ILP). This thesis presents the first detailed analysis of the impact of such processors on shared-memory multiprocessors. We find that ILP ...
Memory architecture in multi-channel optically interconnected distributed shared memory multiprocessor systems
Multi-channel optical networks, although common in telecommunication applications, have only recently found application in computer systems. Multi-channel optical networks offer the potential for high performance interconnects ...
The design and implementation of a new network subsystem architecture for server systems
The explosive growth of the Internet, the widespread use of WWW-related applications, and the increased reliance on client-server architectures places interesting new demands on network servers. In particular, the operating ...
The use of scanning laser range finders for autonomous robotic navigation
An intelligent robotic system must possess the capabilities to sense the environment, perceive the environment, reason on the environment and then act based upon the conclusions of the reasoning process. Autonomous robotic ...
Validation of the Rice Parallel Processing Testbed using sorting algorithms (Rice University, Texas)
The Rice Parallel Processing Testbed (RPPT) is software package for simulating the execution of parallel computers. The RPPT employs execution driven simulation to perform simulation efficiently. In this thesis, the ...
