PYTHIA-II: a knowledge/database system for managing performance data and recommending scientific software
Elias N. Houstis, Ann C. Catlin, John R. Rice, Vassilios S. Verykios, Naren Ramakrishnan, Catherine E. Houstis
Pages: 227-253
DOI: 10.1145/353474.353475
Often scientists need to locate appropriate software for their problems and then select from among many alternatives. We have previously proposed an approach for dealing with this task by processing performance data of the targeted software....

Mining and visualizing recommendation spaces for elliptic PDEs with continuous attributes
Naren Ramakrishnan, Calvin J. Ribbens
Pages: 254-273
DOI: 10.1145/353474.353481
In this paper we extend previous work in mining recommendation spaces based on symbolic problem features to PDE problems with continuous-valued attributes. We identify the research issues in mining such spaces, present a dynamic programming...

Accurate approximate solution of partial differential equations at off-mesh points
W. H. Enright
Pages: 274-292
DOI: 10.1145/353474.353482
Numerical methods for partial differential equations often determine approximations that are more accurate at the set of discrete meshpoints than they are at the “off-mesh” points in the domain of interest. These methods are...

How to vectorize the algebraic multilevel iteration
Lutz Grosz
Pages: 293-309
DOI: 10.1145/353474.353483
We consider the algebraic multilevel iteration (AMLI) for the solution of systems of linear equations as they arise form a finite-difference discretization on a rectangular grid. Key operation is the matrix-vector product, which can efficiently...

Algorithm 803: a simpler macro processor
William A. Ward, Jr.
Pages: 310-319
DOI: 10.1145/353474.353484
Macro processors have been in the computing tool chest since the late 1950's. Their use, though perhaps not what it was in the heyday of assembly language programming, is still widespread. In the past, producing a full-featured macro processor...
