1 Scheduling multiprogammed computer systems: an analytical approachIn a multiprogrammed computer system, several jobs are using the facilities of the system at the same time. However, a given facility (or resource) is generally only allocated to one user at a time- But, while working, jobs generate requests for some facilities and liberate other facilities; thus, c...Multiprogrammed computer system1970
2 Optimal performance of distributed simulation programsThis paper describes a technique to analyze the potential speedup of distributed simulation programs. A distributed simulation strategy is proposed which minimizes execution time through the use of an oracle to control the simulation. Because the strategy relies on an oracle, it cannot be used for ...Distributed simulation programs1987
3 The importance of unknows in Epidemiologic studies1. Epidemiologic study data often include omitted/unobtainable responses (unknowns). In most cases, unknowns are eliminated during data-reduction to facilitate analysis. We examined the effect that elimination of unknowns would have on mortality calculations using data on newborns admitted to a newb...Unknowns; Mortality calculations1985
4 Efficient instruction level simulation of computersA technique for creating efficient, yet highly accurate, instruction level simulation models of computers is described. In contrast to traditional approaches that use a software interpreter, this technique employs direct execution of application programs on the host computer. An assembly language pr...Simulation models1987
5 Graphics applications for grid computingThe first article, "Enabling View-Dependent Progressive Volume Visualization on the Grid" by Alan Norton and Alyn Rockwood describes and evaluates the communication in a progressive, visibility-driven compression scheme for distributing volumetric data from grid resources to volume-rendering clien...Grid computing2003-03
6 Re-visiting the performance impact of microarchitectural floorplanningThe placement of microarchitectural blocks on a die can significantly impact operating temperature. A floorplan that is optimized for low temperature can negatively impact performance by introducing wire delays between critical pipeline stages. In this paper, we identify subsets of wire delays tha...Microarchitectural floorplanning; Wire delays; Floorplanning algorithms; Microprocessor operating temperature; Critical loops; Pipelines2006
7 Sentinels: A concept for multiprocess coordinationThe sentinel construct is introduced, which provides a certain syntactic and semantic framework for multiprocess coordination. The advantage of this construct over others is argued to be semantic transparency, efficiency, ease in implementation, and usefulness in verfication.Sentinels; Multiprocess coordination; Sentinel construct1978
8 A correctness criterion for asynchronous circuit validation and optimizationWe propose a new relation C. called strong conformance in the context of Dill's trace theory, and define B Q A to be true exactly when B conforms to A and the success set of B contains the success set of A. When B C. A, module B operated in module A's maximal environment AM (i.e. B || AM) exhibits a...Validation; Optimization1992
9 Exploiting eager register release in a redundantly multi-threaded processorDue to shrinking transistor sizes and lower supply voltages, transient faults (soft errors) in computer systems are projected to increase by orders of magnitude. Fault detection and recovery can be achieved through redundancy. Redundant multithreading (RMT) is one attractive approach to detect and r...Transient faults; Soft errors; Redundant multithreading; Eager register release; Register file design2006
10 Fred: an architecture for a self-timed decoupled computerDecoupled computer architectures provide an effective means of exploiting instruction level parallelism. Selftimed micropipeline systems are inherently decoupled due to the elastic nature of the basic FIFO structure, and may be ideally suited for constructing decoupled computer architectures. Fred ...1996

12 Exploring the value of supporting multiple DSM protocols in Hardware DSM ControllersThe performance of a hardware distributed shared memory (DSM) system is largely dependent on its architect's ability to reduce the number of remote memory misses that occur. Previous attempts to solve this problem have included measures such as supporting both the CC-NUMA and S-COMA architectures is...DSM; Controllers1999
13 Profiling I/O interrupts in modern architecturesAs applications grow increasingly communication-oriented, interrupt performance quickly becomes a crucial component of high performance I/O system design. At the same time, accurately measuring interrupt handler performance is difficult with the traditional simulation, instrumentation, or statistica...1999
14 Surviving sensor network software faultsWe describe Neutron, a version of the TinyOS operating system that efficiently recovers from memory safety bugs. Where existing schemes reboot an entire node on an error, Neutron's compiler and runtime extensions divide programs into recovery units and reboot only the faulting unit. The TinyOS kerne...2009-01-01
15 Design and validation of a simultaneous multi-threaded DLX processorModern day computer systems rely on two forms of parallelism to achieve high performance, parallelism between individual instructions of a program (ILP) and parallelism between individual threads (TLP). Superscalar processors exploit ILP by issuing several instructions per clock, and multiprocessors...DLX processor; Validation1999

17 Practical advances in asynchronous design and in asynchronous/synchronous interfacesAsynchronous systems are being viewed as an increasingly viable alternative to purely synchronous systems. This paper gives an overview of the current state of the art in practical asynchronous circuit and system design in four areas: controllers, datapaths, processors, and the design of asynchr...1999
18 Computer aided designThe report is based on the proposal submitted to the National Science Foundation in September 1981, as part of the Coordinated Experimental Computer Science Research Program. The sections covering the budget and biographical data on the senior research personnel have not been included. Also, the sec...1984
19 The NSR processorThe NSR (Non-Synchronous RISC) processor is a general-purpose computer structured (IS U collection of self-timed blocks that operate concurrently and communicate over bundled data channels in the style of micropipelines [3, 16]. These blocks correspond to standard synchronous pipeline stages such ...1993
20 Notes on thread models in Mach 3.0During the Mach In-Kernel Servers work, we explored two alternate thread models that could be used to support traps to in-kernel servers. In the "migrating threads" model we used, the client's thread temporarily moves into the server's task for the duration of the call. In t h e "thread switching" ...Thread models; In-kernel servers; Thread switching; Mach 3.01993
21 A characterization of visual feature recognitionNatural human interfaces are a key to realizing the dream of ubiquitous computing. This implies that embedded systems must be capable of sophisticated perception tasks. This paper analyzes the nature of a visual feature recognition workload. Visual feature recognition is a key component of a numb...Visual feature recognition; Human interfaces2003-09-03
22 Practical advances in asynchronous designRecent practical advances in asynchronous circuit and system design have resulted in renewed interest by circuit designers.

23 Temporally coherent interactive ray tracingAlthough ray tracing has been successfully applied to interactively render large datasets, supersampling pixels will not be practical in interactive applications for some time. Because large datasets tend to have subpixel detail, one-sample-per-pixel ray tracing can produce visually distracting popp...Temporally coherent; interactive ray tracing; large datasets2001
24 Correctness proofs for device drivers in embedded systemsComputer systems do not exist in isolation: they must interact with the world through I/O devices. Our work, which focuses on constrained embedded systems, provides a framework for verifying device driver software at the machine code level. We created an abstract device model that can be plugged...2010
25 Message passing support in the Avalanche widgetMinimizing communication latency in message passing multiprocessing systems is critical. An emerging problem in these systems is the latency contribution costs caused by the need to percolate the message through the memory hierarchy (at both sending and receiving nodes) and the additional cost of ma...Avalanche widget; Message passing; Cache coherence; Message copying; Cache miss rates; Computer memory1996
