High-performance systems are undergoing a major shift as commodity multi-core systems become increasingly prevalent. As the number of processes per compute node increase, the other parts of the system must also scale appropriately to maintain a balanced system. In the area of high-performance computing, one very important element of the overall system is(More)
Large scale compute clusters continue to grow to ever-increasing proportions. However, as clusters and applications continue to grow, the Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) has reduced from days to hours. As a result, fault tolerance within the cluster has become imperative. MPI, the de-facto standard for parallel programming, is widely used on such large(More)
Clusters and applications continue to grow in size while their mean time between failure (MTBF) is getting smaller. Checkpoint/Restart is becoming increasingly important for large scale parallel jobs. However, the performance of the Checkpoint/Restart mechanism does not scale well with increasing job size due to constraints within the file system.(More)
Trains of spin echoes are normally modulated by homonuclear scalar couplings. It has long been known that echo modulations are quenched when the pulse-repetition rates are much larger than the offsets of the coupling partners, because the spin systems behave as if they consisted of magnetically equivalent spins when the offsets are suppressed. This type of(More)
— The air transportation system is a network of many interacting, capacity-constrained elements. When the demand for airport and airspace resources exceed the available capacities of these resources, delays occur. The state of the air transportation system at any time can be represented as a weighted directed graph in which the nodes correspond to airports,(More)
Adult hippocampal neurogenesis can be modulated by various physiological and pathological conditions, including stress, affective disorders, and several neurological conditions. Given the proposed role of this form of structural plasticity in the functioning of the hippocampus (namely learning and memory and affective behaviors), it is believed that(More)
Get 'em Moles! is a single-player educational game inspired by the classic arcade game Whac-A-Mole. Primarily designed for touchscreen devices, Get 'em Moles! aims to improve English spelling and pronunciation in players by supporting learning with engaging game play. This paper describes the game, design decisions in the form of elements that support(More)
