      The performance of a system, especially a multiprocessor system, heavily depends upon the efficiency of its bus architecture. This paper presents a methodology to generate a custom bus system for a multiprocessor ...
    • Automatic Configuration of CESM/CCSM4 on Amazon EC2 Cloud 

      Ansari, Sameer; Dunlap, Rocky (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-09-07)
      The goal is to develop a prototype configurator service that automatically creates Amazon EC2 machine instances running on the EC2 Cloud containing ready-to-run configurations of the Community Earth System Model (CESM). ...
    • Automatic Landmark Detection for Topological Mapping Using Bayesian Surprise 

      Ranganathan, Ananth; Dellaert, Frank (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008)
      Topological maps are graphical representations of the environment consisting of nodes that denote landmarks, and edges that represent the connectivity between the landmarks. Automatic detection of landmarks, usually ...
    • Automatic Parallelization of Discrete Event Simulation Programs 

      Tsai, Jya-Jang; Fujimoto, Richard M. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1993)
      Contemporary simulation applications usually need to process many millions of events to obtain sufficiently accurate performance predictions for large, complex systems. While parallel computation offers a solution to ...
