  • The authors describe an efficient method for computing a set of n linear simultaneous equations in o(n) time, on the proposed array processor system. The proposed system is composed of a large number of microprocessors and its layout is p*q square. The microprocessors (hereafter called processing elements, or PEs) are connected to the row and columnwise broadcast memories. 2 references.
  • The authors investigate the behaviour of a parallel computing system, consisting of a number of independent processors, which execute in parallel the numerical solution of a partial differential equation. As a measure of system they consider the speed gain obtained per iteration step on the parallel processors with respect to the one-processor execution of the equivalent task. For the performance evaluation of the parallel system they use a probabilistic model of the computation scheme, based upon several main assumptions concerning computation and communication times. They provide the exact solution of the model in the case of two processors and thenmore » develop a heuristic method allowing the approximate solution of the model in the case of three or more parallel processors. 8 references.« less
  • The present conference discusses topics in the fields of matrix computations, numerical methods, differential equations, parallel processing applications in science, computer languages and software systems for parallel processing, and parallel computer architectures. Attention is given to Gaussian techniques on shared memory multiprocessors, a novel parallel algorithm for linear triangular systems, parallel rapid elliptic solvers, parallel multivariate numerical integration, and the implementation of the acceptance-rejection method on parallel processors. Also discussed are a parallel multilevel FEM with hierarchical basis functions, the parallel processing of a domain decomposition method, the parallelization of adaptive grid domain mappings, the automated decomposition of FEM meshesmore » for hypercube computers, parallel vision algorithms, the programming of parallel architectures, iteration space tiling for memory hierarchies, the Cerberus multiprocessor simulator, and a parallel architecture for optical computing.« less
