Abstract

A Caltech Hypercube has been characterized using known methods to obtain performance figures from a MIMD computer. Speed-up, efficiency and communication cost have been evaluated versus the number of used processors and the physical problem dimensions.

Keywords

Communication Cost Internal Point Overhead Time Packet Reception Floating Point Operation 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
