In this paper, we present a parallel/ distributed algorithm for mul-tivariate numerical integration and examine its performance on nCUBE-2 and PVM. The test results address the eeect of algorithm elements such as a heuristic load balancing technique. We show that good speedups can be achieved for a variety of integration problems, in particular for problems… (More)
We report on the status of a project involving the design, analysis and development of a set of coarse grain parallel and distributed algorithms for multivariate numerical integration. Important issues in parallel and distributed computations are addressed, with emphasis on loosely coupled systems where communication costs are rather high.
