How to cluster in parallel with neural networks

Behzad Kamgar-Parsi; J. A. Gualtieri; J. E. Devaney; Behrooz Kamgar-Parsi Proceedings., 2nd Symposium on the Frontiers of Massively Parallel Computation, 1988

It is shown that the problem of partitioning a net of N patterns in a d-dimensional metric space into K clusters can, in spite of its exponential complexity, be formulated as an optimization problem for which very good, but not necessary optimal, solutions can be found by using a neural network. The network starts from many randomly selected initial states. ...

We readily convince ourselves that most achievements can be credited to the construction of powerful jet engines, which enable a spaceship to escape gravity. The principle of jet propulsion seems to work perfectly; jet engines can accelerate a rocket up to an incredible speed of 11 km/sec. Looks like there is nothing left to desire. However, from the physical point ...

  • Magnetohydrodynamics Formulation

    Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) was originally applied mostly to astrophysics and geophysics. In MHD the motion of collective charged particles is described by an electrically conducting fluid with the usual fluid dynamic variables of velocity, density and pressure or temperature. The interactions of fluid dynamics and electromagnetics are exclusively derived from the magnetic flux density. This chapter presents a systematic derivation of the governing equations of MHD. The first and foremost assumption for MHD formulation is that the physical phenomena are describable by macroscopic scales or in the framework of continuum mechanics. The electromagnetic waves are compound waves for which the compression and rarefaction components can coexist and the direct consequence of the nonconvexity of the ideal MHD equations. The chapter discusses additional computational simulations to show the lack of detailed plasma composition that is required for determining electric conductivity of plasma in the MHD formulation.

  • Accelerated Many-Core GPU Computing for Physics and Astrophysics on Three Continents

    Graphical processing units (GPUs) have become widely used to accelerate a broad range of applications, including computational physics and astrophysics, image/video processing, engineering simulations, and quantum chemistry. This chapter presents results obtained from GPU clusters with previous generations of GPU accelerators, which have no or very limited double-precision support. It provides an astrophysical N-body application for star clusters and galactic nuclei, which is currently the well-tested and heavily used application. The chapter explains exemplary implementations of parallel codes using many GPUs as accelerators, so combining message passing parallelization with many-core parallelization. It discusses their benchmarks using up to 512 Fermi Tesla GPUs in parallel on the Mole-8.5 hardware of the Institute of Process Engineering of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (IPE/CAS) in Beijing, and the Laohu Tesla C1070 cluster of the National Astronomical Observatories of CAS in Beijing and smaller clusters in Germany and in the United States. galactic nuclei; graphics processing units; star clusters

    <p>Prevalent types of data in scientific visualization are volumetric data, vector field data, and particle-based data. Particle data typically originates from measurements and simulations in various fields, such as life sciences or physics. The particles are often visualized directly, that is, by simple representants like spheres. Interactive rendering facilitates the exploration and visual analysis of the data. With increasing data set sizes in terms of particle numbers, interactive high-quality visualization is a challenging task. This is especially true for dynamic data or abstract representations that are based on the raw particle data. </p><p>This book covers direct particle visualization using simple glyphs as well as abstractions that are application-driven such as clustering and aggregation. It targets visualization researchers and developers who are interested in visualization techniques for large, dynamic particle-based data. Its explanations focus o GPU-accelerated algorithms for high-performance rendering and data processing that run in real-time on modern desktop hardware. Consequently, the implementation of said algorithms and the required data structures to make use of the capabilities of modern graphics APIs are discussed in detail. Furthermore, it covers GPU-accelerated methods for the generation of application-dependent abstract representations. This includes various representations commonly used in application areas such as structural biology, systems biology, thermodynamics, and astrophysics.</p>
