Performance analysis of parallel I/O models for external mergesort
Since the I/O subsystem is the bottleneck in external mergesort, I/O parallelism can result in substantial performance improvements. Concurrency can be introduced by overlapping I/O requests at different disks, and the ...
Remote control of a robotic arm through speaker-dependent, isolated-word speech recognition
The focus of this thesis is the remote control of a six degree-of-freedom mid-range industrial robot arm through the use of speech recognition. The robot arm is controlled through speaker-dependent, isolated-word speech ...
Synchronization, coherence, and consistency for high performance shared memory multiprocessing
Although improved device technology has increased the performance of computer systems, fundamental hardware limitations and the need to build faster systems using existing technology have led many computer system designers ...
Modeling and analyzing fractal point processes
The temporal pattern of the action potential discharges of auditory nerve fibers have been presumed to be random in nature and well described as a renewal process. Recently, we observed that the discharges were characterized ...
Fine-grain producer-initiated communication in cache-coherent multiprocessors
Shared-memory multiprocessors are becoming increasingly popular as a high-performance, easy to program, and relatively inexpensive choice for parallel computation. However, the performance of shared-memory multiprocessors ...
