Parallelism pervades all aspects of modern computing, from in-home devices such as cell phones to large-scale supercomputers. Recognizing this - and motivated by the premise that every undergraduate student in a computer-related field should be prepared to cope with parallel computing - a working group sponsored by NSF and IEEE/TCPP, and interacting with(More)
Adherence to imatinib(IM) is of utmost importance in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) to maximise treatment effectiveness. The main objective is to measure adherence to IM by evaluating individual patient characteristics, personal behaviour and, treatment related psychological factors influencing adherence behaviour. Hundred patients receiving(More)
In this paper we describe a scalable parallel formulation of interior point algorithms. Through our implementation on a 256-processor nCUBE 2 parallel computer, we show that our parallel formulation utilizes hundreds of processors efficiently and delivers much higher performance and speedups than reported earlier. These speedups are a result of our highly(More)
Character Recognition (CR) has been an active area of research in the past and due to its diverse applications it continues to be a challenging research topic. In this paper, we focus especially on offline recognition of handwritten English words by first detecting individual characters. The main approaches for offline handwritten word recognition can be(More)
In this paper, we describe a scalable parallel algorithm for sparse matrix factorization, analyze their performance and scalability, and present experimental results for up to 1024 processors on a Cray T3D parallel computer. Through our analysis and experimental results, we demonstrate that our algorithm substantially improves the state of the art in(More)
This paper presents a design flow that optimizes a standard cell based circuit for performance by implementing critical paths in a Programmable Logic Array (PLA). Given a standard-cell based circuit as input, our approach iteratively extracts critical paths from this circuit, which are then implemented using a PLA circuit. PLAs are a good candidate for such(More)
