  author={Guang R. Gao and Thomas L. Sterling and Rick L. Stevens and Mark Hereld and Weirong Zhu},
  journal={2007 IEEE International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium},
This paper proposes the study of a new computation model that attempts to address the underlying sources of performance degradation (e.g. latency, overhead, and starvation) and the difficulties of programmer productivity (e.g. explicit locality management and scheduling, performance tuning, fragmented memory, and synchronous global barriers) to dramatically enhance the broad effectiveness of parallel processing for high end computing. In this paper, we present the progress of our research on a… CONTINUE READING
