This paper describes the design and implementation of high performance numerical software in Java. Our primary goals are to characterize the performance of object-oriented numerical software written in Java and to investigate whether Java is a suitable language for such endeavors. We have implemented JLAPACK, a subset of the LAPACK library in Java. LAPACK… (More)
The nested data-parallel programming model supports the design and implementation of irregular parallel algorithms. This paper describes work in progress to incorporate nested data parallelism into the object model of Java by developing a library of collection classes and adding a forall statement to the language. The collection classes provide parallel… (More)
