If you are a graduate student interested in gaining some
research/publishing experience and contributing
to the POEMS/MASC project, for example through an independent study project,
possible topics and who to contact for further information about
each topic are listed below:
- Generalized/reusable LogGP model
The goal is to generalize the LogGP model developed and validated for
Sweep3D running on an SP system,
so that the model can be applied to predict the total execution time for any
parallel application that has a parellel pipelined structure and uses
message passing communication (e.g., MPI or PVM). The first step is to
adapt the model and validate it for
another significant application that has a parallel pipelined synchronization
structure, such as one of the NAS benchmarks.

- Parallel Implementation of MOL
The parallel version has been designed to enable the MOL application to
run on multiple processors.The parallel implementation uses the
Message Passing Interface (MPI) to communicate data between processes.
- Parallel application performance modeling
Model the performance of a large application running on Condor.
- Graphical User Interface to :
(1) Experiment with Adaptive Parallel Computations
(2) Collect experimental data about Parallel Performance of MOL
The primary objective of the GUI is to enable users to interactively control
problem parameters and obtain performance data in the form of tables and/or graphs. Also the performance
data can be stored in a database , which can be used for further analysis.
