We present a new scheme for evaluating the performance of multithreaded computers and demonstrate its application to the Cray MTA-2 and XMT supercomputers.
The discovery phase of IP litigation often calls for a technical review of a software product. A code review is an activity conducted by an expert witness that involves reviewing the source code of a product to discover pertinent facts relevant to the case.
The Cray MTA, a multithreaded architecture, is a new parallel supercomputer installed at San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC).
Finite difference, time domain (FDTD) simulations are important to the design cycle for optical communications devices. High spatial resolution is essential, and the Courant condition limits the time step, making this problem require the level of high-performance system usually only available at a remote center.
We explore the comparative performance of the Cray XMT and XMT-2 massively multithreaded supercomputers. We use benchmarks to evaluate memory accesses for various types of loops. We also compare the performance of these machines on matrix multiply and on three previously implemented dynamic programming algorithms.

The new government has announced the areas that it has identified for dramatic cuts in public spending. One of the most effective reductions should be derived through more professional, better-managed government IT spending.
You are an established, reputable, medium-sized corporation. A year ago your board decided to upgrade your existing computer systems by buying a 'unified package', 'lightly-customised', from a 'solution provider'.
An property and casualty insurance agency acting as a managing general agent for several insurance lines sold through sub-agents throughout the United States had agreed to license a comprehensive agency management system from a developer of such software specifically developed for managing general agencies.
A distributor of products used in the health care industry invented a system and filed patents describing the system and associated methods.
