MW: A Software Framework for Combinatorial Optimization on Computational Grids
This work demonstrates that branch-and-bound algorithms for combinatorial optimization can be effectively implemented on a relatively new type of multiprocessor platform known as a computational grid, and argues that the master-worker paradigm should be used to control the algorithm. Expand
Solving optimization problems on computational grids.
The experiences in the metaneos project have shown that cheap, powerful computational grids can be used to tackle large optimization problems of various types, and motivate further work on parallel, grid-enabled algorithms for solving very large problems of other types. Expand
FastMap: a distributed scheme for mapping large scale applications onto computational grids
This paper proposes a new and fast mapping heuristic, called FastMap, to map this class of applications onto heterogeneous metacomputing platforms such as computational grids and develops a scheme that proves to be almost linear in its scalability. Expand

Multigrain parallelism for eigenvalue computations on networks of clusters
This paper presents an algorithmic technique that increases the granularity of parallel block iterative methods by inducing additional work during the preconditioning (inexact solution) phase of the iteration, and calls this combination of fine and coarse grain parallelism multigrain. Expand
