In this paper, we present a new, easy to implement algorithm for detecting the termination of a parallel asynchronous computation on distributedmemory MIMD computers. We demonstrate that it operates concurrently with the main computation, adding minimal overhead, and we prove that it correctly detects termination when it occurs. Experimental results confirm(More)
In [20], Simon proves that bisection is not the optimal method for computing an eigenvalue on a single vector processor. In this paper, we show that his analysis does not extend in a straightforward way to the computation of an eigenvalue on a distributed-memory MIMD multiprocessor. In particular, we show how the optimal number of sections (and processors)(More)
