High Performance Peer-to-Peer Distributed Computing With Application to Obstacle Problem
This paper deals with high performance Peer-to-Peer computing applications. The authors concentrate on the solution of large scale numerical simulation problems via distributed iterative methods. They present the current version of an environment that allows direct communication between peers. This environment is based on a self-adaptive communication protocol. The protocol configures itself automatically and dynamically in function of application requirements like scheme of computation and elements of context like topology by choosing the most appropriate communication mode between peers. A first series of computational experiments is presented and analyzed for the obstacle problem.
