We present a review of the current best practices in parallel programming models for dense linear algebra (DLA) on heterogeneous architectures. We consider multicore CPUs, stand alone manycore coprocessors, GPUs, and combinations of these. Of interest is the evolution of the programming models for DLA libraries – in particular, the evolution from the(More)

This paper focuses upon the design of neural network to produce good solution to multiple-valued logic circuits. The theoretical basis for applying neural networks to multiple-valued logic algebra called neuro-algebra is proposed. This research also studies the design of a single artificial neural network model for half adders of binary, ternary, quaternary(More)
The purpose of this paper is to present new algorithms and circuits to convert from MVL (multiple valued logic) to MVL coded decimal (MVL-CD) and vice versa. We will introduce two conversion techniques: the first one is called "addition-subtraction technique" (AST) while the other method is called "division-multiplication technique" (DMT). Based on AST, we(More)
The VLSI/ULSI performance is expected to keep improving at the current rate indefinitely as feature size shrinks; however as chips are bursting with huge number of transistors, the interchip connections are increased and heat dissipation is becoming an enormous problem as more and more functions are gathered on the same chip. This will influence size and(More)
This technical report describes our findings regarding performance optimizations of the tensor contraction kernels used in BLAST – a high-order FE hydrodynamics research code developed at LLNL – on various modern architectures. Our approach considers and shows ways to organize the contractions, their vectorization, data storage formats, read/write patterns,(More)
This paper proposes a novel ternary QAM (TQAM), which is new concept in communication. The proposed model minimizes the number of characters per symbol; hence results in a better signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and bit error rate (BER). For this purpose a new generation of constellation diagrams is proposed leading to new methods of modulating transmitted and(More)
We propose TQAM (ternary quadrature-amplitude modulation) as a scheme of modulating analog signals to carry ternary digital data. We propose a model for the constellation diagram of the new scheme. Our motivation of thinking about this issue is the fact that the application of multi-value (non-binary) digital signals can provide considerable relief of(More)

The aim of this paper is to present a new design for a controller unit using base 3, which will be named ternary controller unit. The ternary controller unit is planned to be the future brain of the ternary central processing unit. The ternary controller unit controls the fetch and execution cycles of instructions. To achieve this task, the ternary(More)
