I know what vectorizing is, and I know what pipelining is. I assume "vector pipelining" might mean vectorizing in such a way that vector instructions can be pipelined. Is this a new or coming ...
What architecture are current computers based on? The Princeton Architecture or the Harvard Architecture? Some notes I found online state the Princeton architecture, but this creates the Princeton ...
I writing some robust geometric algorithms using quantization + integer arithmetic for evaluating exact predicates. However, since BlueGene's integer support is so terrible, it occurred to me that ...
Literature references for modeling current and future energy costs of floating-point operations and data transfers
I am searching for the most important literature and slide references for modeling current and future energy costs of floating-point operations and data transfers across the CPU, memory, network, and ...
I have heard that one of the current goals in scientific computing is to surpass the exascale level by 2018 or so... After having passed the petascale a few years ago, one would think that the ...
In my numerical analysis courses, I learned to analyze the efficiency of algorithms by counting the number of floating-point operations (flops) they require, relative to the size of the problem. For ...
