A low-diameter, fast interconnection network is going to be a prerequisite for building exascale machines. A two-level direct network has been proposed by several groups as a scalable design for future machines. IBM's PERCS topology and the dragonfly network discussed in the DARPA exascale hardware study are examples of this design. The presence of multiple(More)
Fractures of the distal femur, proximal tibia, and patella that occur adjacent to a total knee replacement may be very difficult to treat. Fixation options are compromised because of the short articular segment, frequent comminution, pre-existing osteoporosis, previous surgical incisions, and the presence of the knee implant itself.

Collectives are an important and frequently used component of MPI. Bucket algorithms, also known as "large vector" algorithms, were introduced in the early 90's and have since evolved as a well known paradigm for large MPI collectives. Many modern day supercomputers such as the IBM Blue Gene and Cray XT are based on torus interconnects that offer a highly(More)
Association rule mining play important rule in market data analysis and also in medical diagnosis of correlated problem. For the generation of association rule mining various technique are used such as Apriori algorithm, FP-growth and tree based algorithm. Some algorithms are wonder performance but generate negative association rule and also suffered from(More)
The advent of petascale computing has introduced new challenges (e.g. heterogeneity, system failure) for programming scalable parallel applications. Increased complexity and dynamism in science and engineering applications of today have further exacerbated the situation. Addressing these challenges requires more emphasis on concepts that were previously of(More)
We present our implementation of the HPC Challenge Class II (productivity) benchmarks in the Charm++ [1] programming paradigm. Our submission focuses on explaining how over-decomposed, message-driven, migratable objects enhance the clarity of expression of parallel programs and also enable the runtime system to deliver portable performance. Our submission(More)
Networks are among major power consumers in large-scale parallel systems. During execution of common parallel applications, a sizeable fraction of the links in the high-radix interconnects are either never used or are underutilized. We propose a runtime system based adaptive approach to turn off unused links, which has various advantages over the previously(More)
Network congestion is one of the primary causes of performance degradation, performance variability and poor scaling in communication-heavy parallel applications. However, the causes and mechanisms of network congestion on modern interconnection networks are not well understood. We need new approaches to analyze, model and predict this critical behaviour in(More)
