Analytical performance prediction of parallel systems
The need for more computing power for many computer applications has increased beyond the capabilities of traditional von Neumann architectures. This has generated interest in using parallel computers to improve processing ...
In search of optimal human-expert system explanations: Empirical studies of human-human and human-expert system interactions
In this project explanations were studied along a continuum ranging from human-human interactions to human-expert system interactions with the goal of identifying features of successful expert system explanations. The ...
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 ...
An optimizing Fortran D compiler for MIMD distributed-memory machines
Massively parallel MIMD distributed-memory machines can provide enormous computational power; however, the difficulty of developing parallel programs for these machines has limited their use. Our thesis is that an advanced ...
Surface approximation by low degree patches with multiple representations
Computer Aided Geometric Design (CAGD) is concerned with the representation and approximation of curves and surfaces when these objects have to be processed by a computer. Parametric representations are very popular because ...
The trend in high-performance microprocessor design is toward increasing computational power on the chip. Microprocessors can now process dramatically more data per machine cycle than previous models. Unfortunately, memory ...
