  1. 1. Scientific Computing on Multicore Architectures

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Martin Tillenius; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; multicore; scientific computing; shared memory parallelism; task-based programming; parallel programming model; task scheduling; data versioning; Scientific Computing; Beräkningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Computer simulations are an indispensable tool for scientists to gain new insights about nature. Simulations of natural phenomena are usually large, and limited by the available computer resources. READ MORE

  2. 2. Scientific computing on hybrid architectures

    University dissertation from Uppsala universitet

    Author : Marcus Holm; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Scientific Computing; Beräkningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Modern computer architectures, with multicore CPUs and GPUs or other accelerators, make stronger demands than ever on writers of scientific code. As a rule of thumb, the fastest, most efficient program consists of labor-intensive code written by expert programmers for a certain application on a particular computer. READ MORE

  3. 3. Leveraging multicore processors for scientific computing

    University dissertation from Uppsala universitet

    Author : Martin Tillenius; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Scientific Computing; Beräkningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with how to develop scientific computing software that runs efficiently on multicore processors. The goal is to find building blocks and programming models that increase the productivity and reduce the probability of programming errors when developing parallel software. READ MORE

  4. 4. Self-Knowledge/Self-Regulation/Self-Control: A Ubiquitous Computing Perspective

    University dissertation from Lund University Cognitive Science, Kungshuset Lundagård, 222 22 Lund

    Author : Lars Hall; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; pervasive computing; affective computing; persuasive computing; Psychology; Psykologi; ubiquitous computing; computer-mediated extrospection; precommitment; distributed motivation; distributed cognition; neurofeedback; biofeedback; metacognition; brain-imaging; learning strategies; emotion regulation; mental strategies; verbal report; implicit learning; consciousness; introspection; self-control; Self-knowledge; self-regulation;

    Abstract : This thesis is about self-knowledge, self-regulation and self-control. All three of these terms are easily understandable, and apply to situations in our daily lives (like misjudging one’s own competence at retiling the bathroom floor, or feeling the anxiety and thrill of doing unsupervised work, or guiltily hitting the snooze-button for the fifth time, and missing half a day of school).

  5. 5. Situation awareness in pervasive computing systems reasoning, verification, prediction

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Andrey Boytsov; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; situation awareness; context awareness; pervasive computing; ubiquitous computing; context prediction; Information technology - Computer science; Informationsteknik - Datorvetenskap; Mobile and Pervasive Computing; Distribuerade datorsystem;

    Abstract : The paradigm of pervasive computing aims to integrate the computing technologies in a graceful and transparent manner, and make computing solutions available anywhere and at any time. Different aspects of pervasive computing, like smart homes, smart offices, social networks, micromarketing applications, PDAs are becoming a part of everyday life. READ MORE
