We propose and evaluate empirically the performance of a dynamic processor-scheduling policy for multiprogrammed shared-memory multiprocessors. The policy is dynamic in that it reallocates processors from one parallel job to another based on the currently realized parallelism of those jobs. The policy is suitable for implementation in production systems in(More)
When multiple jobs compete for processing resources on a parallel computer, the operating system kernel's processor allocation policy determines how many and which processors to allocate to each. In this paper we investigate the issues involved in constructing a processor allocation policy for large scale, message-passing parallel computers supporting a(More)
We consider the problem of multiprocessor scheduling of jobs whose memory requirements place lower bounds on the fraction of the machine required in order to execute. We address three primary questions in this work:1. How can a parallel machine be multiprogrammed with minimal overhead when jobs have minimum memory requirements?2. To what extent does the(More)
This paper describes the scheduling issues specic to the Tera MTA high performance shared memory multithreaded multiprocessor and presents solutions to classic scheduling problems. The Tera MTA exploits parallelism at all levels, from ne-grained instruction-level parallelism within a single processor to parallel programming across processors, to(More)

Fasciola hepatica, common liver fluke, infects cattle and sheep causing disease and production losses costing approximately $3 billion annually. Current control relies on drugs designed to kill the parasite. However, resistance is evident worldwide and widespread in some areas. Work towards a vaccine has identified several antigens of F. hepatica that show(More)
This study aims to elucidate the effects of the logical form and geometrical content of an argument on spatial deductive reasoning. We will investigate the effects of these factors by comparing the opposing predictions made by the Formal Rules theory and the Mental Models theory of spatial deductive reasoning. We will also elucidate the effects of(More)
