Abstract : The purpose of this grant was to purchase a hypercube computer to support DoD-sponsored research, and other research, in parallel numerical computation. The plans that were outlined in the proposal were followed very closely. We have purchased a 32-node Intel iPSC-D5 hypercube computer with the funds from this grant, and have used the matching University contribution to support the maintenance of this computer. This computer has been used, over the past year, for research in parallel numerical computation in areas including global optimization, VLSI design, large sparse systems of linear equations, and eigenvalue problems, as well as for research in the languages for parallel computation and in the debugging and measurement of parallel programs.
