   ENIAC in action: making and remaking the modern computer
Haigh T., Priestley M., Rope C.,  The MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, 2016. 360 pp. Type: Book (978-0-262033-98-5), Reviews: (4 of 4)

The history of the first Monte Carlo computer simulations was what got me interested in this book in the first place. Once I started reading it, I discovered how little I knew of the Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer (ENIAC) besides a f...

  Design and performance evaluation of NUMA-aware RDMA-based end-to-end data transfer systems
Ren Y., Li T., Yu D., Jin S., Robertazzi T.  SC 2013 (Proceedings of the International Conference for High-Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis, Denver, CO,  Nov 17-21, 2013) 1-10, 2013. Type: Proceedings

This interesting paper describes some expected (the transmission control protocol/Internet protocol (TCP/IP) stack) as well as unexpected (nonuniform memory access (NUMA) architecture and solid-state drive (SSD) storage devices) bottlenecks that p...

  Performance analysis and optimization of MPI collective operations on multi-core clusters
Tu B., Fan J., Zhan J., Zhao X.  The Journal of Supercomputing 60(1): 141-162, 2012. Type: Article

Ten years ago, the computing clusters I worked with had four-way symmetric multiprocessor (SMP) nodes. We knew then that, in the future, the number of processing elements per node would have to increase, and we wondered how this would be achieved ...

  Simulation of one-layer shallow water systems on multicore and CUDA architectures
De La Asunción M., Mantas J., Castro M.  The Journal of Supercomputing 58(2): 206-214, 2011. Type: Article

Shallow water systems are used to model channels, dam breaks, ocean currents, and other geophysical flows. The models are formulated as systems of conservation laws and solved using numerical schemes that are computationally very demanding but hav...

   RPC chains: efficient client-server communication in geodistributed systems
Song Y., Aguilera M., Kotla R., Malkhi D.  NSDI 2009 (Proceedings of the 6th USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation, Boston, MA,  Apr 22-24, 2009) 277-290, 2009. Type: Proceedings

Remote procedure call (RPC) is a common communication primitive for invoking a service from a remote computer. RPCs hide the complexities of network programming behind the familiar face of a standard procedure call, allowing developers to focus on...

  Detecting in-flight page changes with Web tripwires
Reis C., Gribble S., Kohno T., Weaver N.  Networked systems design and implementation (Detecting In-flight Page Changes with Web Tripwires on Networked Systems Design and Implementation, San Francisco, California,  Apr 16-18, 2008) 31-44, 2008. Type: Proceedings

This paper proposes a number of techniques for detecting unauthorized changes to Web pages on their way from the server to the client. Pop-ups and other forms of advertising inserted into the pages served by providers of free Web hosting services ...

   Virtual machine aware communication libraries for high performance computing
Huang W., Koop M., Gao Q., Panda D.  Supercomputing (Proceedings of the 2007 ACM/IEEE Conference on Supercomputing, Reno, Nevada,  Nov 10-16, 2007) 1-12, 2007. Type: Proceedings

Virtual machines (VMs) strike back! VM technology is a way of sharing a computer between multiple instances of possibly diverse operating systems (OSs) running at the same time. This technology has been around for many years, and confined to mainf...

   An introduction to design patterns in C++ with Qt 4 (Bruce Perens’ Open Source)
Ezust A., Ezust P.,  Prentice Hall PTR, Upper Saddle River, NJ, 2006. 656 pp. Type: Book (9780131879058)

There are many books on programming languages, or on application frameworks, or on design patterns, and so on. Some try to squeeze a few distinct topics into a single book, which is a difficult thing to do well. This book is different. Although it...

   Towards generic and middleware-independent support for replicated, distributed objects
Domaschka J., Reiser H., Hauck F.  Middleware-application interaction (Proceedings of the 1st Workshop on Middleware-Application Interaction, Lisbon, Portugal,  Mar 20, 2007) 43-48, 2007. Type: Proceedings

Object replication is a way to improve the availability and scalability of applications based on distributed object architecture. As replication is independent of application logic, various platforms come with this feature integrated right into th...

   Analysis of remote execution models for grid middleware
Hutanu A., Hirmer S., Allen G., Merzky A.  Middleware for grid computing (Proceedings of the 4th International Workshop on Middleware for Grid Computing, Melbourne, Australia,  Nov 27-Dec 1, 2006) 11-11, 2006. Type: Proceedings

Successful deployment of global computing grids involves solving a number of critical issues, including authorization, security, and, last but not least, the communication latency and limited bandwidth. The performance of computational grids is ...
