Abstract : This DOD URIP effort provided resources for the purchase of a BBN Butterfly parallel processor architecture for research into parallel processing. The equipment has been used to developed parallel algorithms for ray traced computer graphics, for numerical fast Fourier Transform (FFT) algorithms, and AI and expert system applications. Papers produced include such titles as Distributed Genetric Algorithms, and A software tool for building Supercomputer applications. Keywords: Multiprocessors; Programming; Compiler design; Interactive graphics; Optimization. (Author)
