Modern processors are evolving into hybrid, heterogeneous processors with both CPU and GPU cores used for general purpose computation. Several languages such as Brook, CUDA, and more recently OpenCL are being developed to fully harness the potential of these processors. These languages typically involve the control code running on the CPU and the(More)
We collected benthic bacterial production data measured by (3)H thymidine incorporation (TTI) (25 studies), frequency of dividing cells (FDC) (3 studies), dark-C02 assimilation (1 study) and (3)H-adenine uptake (2 studies) from the literature, which included 18 marine, 6 river, and 2 lake studies. In all of the studies that used the TTI method, (3)H-DNA was(More)
The GPGPU model represents a style of execution where thousands of threads execute in a data-parallel fashion, with a large subset (typically 10s to 100s) needing frequent synchronization. As the GPGPU model evolves target both GPUs and CPUs as acceleration targets, thread synchronization becomes an important problem when running on CPUs. CPUs have little(More)
This document presents the Illinois Pulsar{based Optical INTerconnect (iPOINT) testbed, a collaborative research eeort between the Microelectronics Center and the Computer Science Department at the University of Illinois investigating the use of Optical Electronic Integrated Circuits (OEICs) for high{bandwidth computer networking. Optoelectronic components(More)
A 62-year-old man presented with acute headache, blurred and double vision, nausea, and ataxia. Magnetic resonance imaging showed an enhancing mass on the inferior aspect of the right cerebellar hemisphere as well as a thin, widespread leptomeningeal enhancement and T2-weighted hyperintense lesions in the left occipital lobe and both thalami. Lumbar(More)
Technological advances have resulted in increasing levels of on-chip functionality. Multi-core architectures pervade all levels of computing platforms, from smart phones to servers and high-performance computers. Extraction of parallelism from mainstream applications is thus even more imperative than in the past. This seminar will examine new developments(More)
