A new algorithm is presented, designed to solve tridiagonal matrix problems efficientiy with parallel computers (multiple instruction stream, multiple data stream (MIMD) machines with distributed memory). The algorithm is designed to be extendable to higher order banded diagonal systems.
The benefits of an energy source whose reac-tants are plentiful and whose products are benign is hard to measure, but at no time in history has this energy source been more needed. Nuclear fusion continues to promise to be this energy source. However, the path to market for fusion systems is still regularly a matter for long-term (20 ? year) plans. This… (More)
