Abstract

Motivation for the WDD project comes primarily from the following two areas:
  • • making use of the expected proliferation of optical bandwidth, and

  • • addressing some of the issues surrounding inter-procesor communication in distributed computing environments, particularly wide-area distributed computing environments.

Keywords

Cell Engine Distribute Computing Environment Optical Bandwidth High Performance Computing System Forest Fire Model 
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.
