PVM Implementation of Boundary Value Problems on
Heterogeneous Parallel Systems
TU Budapest Department of Control Engineering and
A wide class of technical problems can be described by boundary
value problems (BVPs) associated with ordinary differential
equations (ODEs). The solution of parameter-dependent BVPs is a
hard task and the numerical solution is highly computation intensive.
The Global Direct Algorithm described in [3
gives a new numerical approach which is the base of the Parallel
Simplex Algorithm (PSA) [5
]. This algorithm has been
implemented with Parallel Virtual Machine (PVM) and has been tested
in heterogeneous environment. This paper presents the core of the
algorithm and makes a short summary about the technical problems
in which the PSA has been applied.
