  1. A Portable Optimized Implementation of Ray Tracing for Performance Computing

    SBC: Ronin Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes the development and analysis of a prototype portable, optimized ray tracing application. We will take an existing ray tracer and modify it to take advantage of pipilined, vector, and massively parallel processing in a portable manner. We will then analyze the effects of these performance enhancements. The major purpose of this study is to determine when MPP architectures or ...

  2. A Portable Scalable Library for Sparse Matrix Linear Algebra on Distributed Memory Systems

    SBC: Ronin Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes the development and analysis of a prototype scalable library for sparse matrix operations in a distributed memory environment. The library is to be object-oriented; hence, will be implemented in C++. It is designed to be portable, and therefore will adhere to the Message Passing Interface (MPI) standard, but will use P4 from Argonne National Laboratory for the prototype. Fi ...

  4. An Expert Information Filtering Service for the Internet

    SBC: Scientific Comput Assoc            Topic: N/A

    As a National information resource, the Internet makes available vast amounts of information to a broad range of consumers. For most users, however, only a tiny fraction of the aggregate information is significant, and the overall resource only has value if that fraction can be located reliably, quickly, and automatically. Today's tools are incapable of meeting users' needs - they are too slow and ...

  6. BIOMIMETIC PROCESSING OF SILICATE STRUCTURES

    SBC: Gelest Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL IS DIRECTED TOWARD THE PREPARATION OF SOL-GEL DERIVED SILICATE STRUCTURES BY BIOMIMETIC PROCESSES. ORGANOSILICON AND GERMANIUM PROBES WILL BE SYNTHESIZED AND THEIR EFFECTS ON REPRESENTATIVE SPECIES OF DIATOMS WILL BE SCREENED. DIATOMS PRODUCE AN ORDERED DEPOSITION OF AMORPHOUS SILICON DIOXIDE FROM SUPERSATURATED SILICATE SOLUTIONS. ORDERED DEPOSITION OF SILICON DIOXIDE IS A MAJOR OBJ ...

  7. BUILDING FORTRAN-LINDA(R)

    SBC: Scientific Comput Assoc            Topic: N/A

    THE MAIN IMPEDIMENT TO THE USE OF PARALLEL AND DISTRIBUTED COMPUTING IS THE LACK OF PROPER HIGH-LEVEL PARALLEL PROGRAMMING ENVIRONMENT. THE POTENTIAL OF PARALLEL MACHINES WILL NEVER BE TAPPED IF THEY CNANOT BE PROGRAMMED EFFECTIVELY AND EASILY. FORTRAN-LINDA IS A PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE FOR BUILDING DISTRIBUTED AND PARALLEL PROGRAMS. IT COMBINES A STANDARD SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE (FORTRAN)WIT ...

  9. Cost Effective Copper CVD Precursors for ULSI Devices

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) of copper for vias and interconnects is critical to manufacture of next generation high speed ULSI devices and has been extensively investigated over the last few years. Although considerable progress has been made commercialization of this technology is currently impossible due to the high cost of the source reagents. In this Phase I program Advanced Technology Mat ...

  10. Design of a Parallel Object Oriented Programming Language

    SBC: Scientific Comput Assoc            Topic: N/A

    Object Oriented Programming (OOP) techniques are a vital part of modern software engineering. Unfortunately, on parallel computers where the need is greatest, OOP tools are lacking. We propose to address this problem by designing a parallel OOP language. Unlike other parallel OOP research efforts, we will approach parallel OOP from the viewpoint of the parallel programming environment - not the OO ...
