This book covers the implementation of algorithms of interest for the system and the library software, in the Operating System and/or the Library Bases, both in the Control Flow paradigm (for problems that are best implemented in Control Flow) and in the Data Flow paradigm (for problems that are best implemented in Data Flow). Consequently, this book advocates the need for Hybrid Computing, where the Control Flow part represents the host architecture and Data Flow part represents the acceleration architecture. These (afore mentioned) issues cover the initial eight out of the total of sixteen chapters.
The remaining and the final eight chapters cover selected modern applications that are best implemented on a Hybrid Computer, in which the transactional parts (serial code) are implemented on the Control Flow part and the loops (parallel code) on the Data Flow part. These final eight chapters cover two major application domains: The scientific computing, in the widest sense, and the computing for digital economy, in the widest sense. The rationale behind this book is to summarize the advances of Control Flow and Data Flow Super Computing, and to shed light on selected emerging big data applications needing high acceleration and/or low power.
This book offers applications in marketing, medicine, energy systems, and library science, among others, and is an essential source for scientists, programmers, engineers, practitioners, researchers, academicians, and students interested in the latest findings and advancements in supercomputing.
