XML-based information mediation with MIX
TLDR

iRODS Primer: Integrated Rule-Oriented Data System
TLDR
The integrated Rule-Oriented Data System implements the data management framework required to support policy-based data management and is a highly extensible and tunable system that can enforce management policies, automate administrative tasks, and periodically validate assessment criteria.
Local Interpolation Using a Distributed Parallel Supercomputer
TLDR
It is demonstrated how parallel processing can be used to reduce computation times to levels that are suitable for interactive interpolation analyses of large spatial databases.
Inverse-distance-weighted spatial interpolation using parallel supercomputers
TLDR
A serial algorithm that performs two-dimensional inverse-distance-weighted interpolation is decomposed into a form suitable for parallel processing in two shared memory computing environments.
XML-based information mediation for digital libraries
TLDR
A prototype distributed architecture for a digital library is demonstrated, based on XML-based modeling of metadata; use of an XML query language, and associated mediator middleware, to query distributed metadata sources; and the use of a storage system middleware to access distributed, archived data sets.
