This paper introduces FlowVR, a middleware dedicated to virtual reality applications distributed on clusters or grid environments. FlowVR supports coupling of heterogeneous parallel codes and is component oriented to favor code reuse. While classical communication paradigms focus on either a synchronous approach (FIFO channels) or an asynchronous one(More)
This paper describes a new fast and scalable parallel algorithm to compute global flow accumulation for automatic drainage network extraction in large digital elevation models (DEM for short). Our method uses the D8 model to compute the flow directions for all pixels in the DEM (except NODATA and oceans). A parallel spanning tree algorithm is proposed to(More)
We introduce inductive definitions over language expressions as a framework for specifying tree tuple languages. Inductive definitions and their subclasses correspond naturally to classes of logic programs, and operations on tree tuple languages correspond to the transformation of logic programs. We present an algorithm based on unfolding and definition(More)
Combining molecular dynamics simulations with user interaction would have various applications in both education and research. By enabling interactivity the scientist will be able to visualize the experiment in real time and drive the simulation to a desired state more easily. However, interacting with systems of interesting size requires significant(More)
The amount of data generated by molecular dynamics simulations of large molecular assemblies and the sheer size and complexity of the systems studied call for new ways to analyse, steer and interact with such calculations. Traditionally, the analysis is performed off-line once the huge amount of simulation results have been saved to disks, thereby stressing(More)
This paper describes a new fast and scalable parallel algorithm to automatically determine catchment basin of rivers in large digital elevation models (DEM for short). This algorithms is based on the construction of a minimal spanning tree, via a hierarchy of graphs, modeling the water route on the DEM. It does not need any preprocessing like stream burning(More)
