Program Type



The rapid advancement of computer architectures and high-speed interconnects have facilitated many successful deployments of many types of parallel and distributed systems. Researchers in previous studies have reported that, the design of interconnects significantly impacts the performance of parallel applications. High-speed interconnects not only unveil the potential performance of the computing system, but also allow such systems to achieve better performance/cost ratio. Towards this end, this project aims to study the how computations and communications influence the performance of such parallel and distributed computing systems.
