The computer sciences group performs research in a
wide range of areas spanning high performance computing and
collaborative technologies. There is much collaboration with other
Center for Computational Sciences,
as well as outside researchers.
Here is a list of the areas with links to the related projects.
Heterogeneous distributed computing
The de facto standard for heterogeneous cluster computing.
A graphical control interface and performance monitor for PVM.
A collaborative computing environment that provides
computational steering, fault tolerance and visualization
to parallel applications.
A client/server package that allows users to access
computational resources distributed across the network.
Extensions to the Message Passing Interface specifications
adding one-sided communication, process spawning, and I/O.
A package that provides interoperability between
different MPI implementations.
DOE 2000 Collaborative Technologies
A shareable notebook for use by collaborators.
A collaborative computing environment that plays a key
role in the ACTS toolkit project.
computational steering, fault tolerance and visualization.
Remote control of scientific instruments
Overviews several ORNL Collaboratory efforts.
Collaborative Management Environment
A framework for a robust, scalable, and secure virtual management system
Software tools for high performance computing
A library of scaleable parallel linear algebra routines
supporting PVM and MPI.
BenchWeb is a starting point for finding information about
computer system performance benchmarks, benchmark results,
and benchmark code.
parallel benchmark working group
Central repository for mathematical software, papers, and databases.
An interface to a distributed collection of HPCC repositories.

PVM spans NT and Unix Clusters. A beta version of PVM
is now available that allows clusters of PCs running Win95, and NT 4.0
to be added to a virtual machine composed of Unix hosts.
CUMULVS Collaborative environment for large scale simulations
plays a critical role in the DOE 2000 ACTS toolkit project.
Electronic Notebook software installed by the DOE 2000
Materials Microscopy Collaboratory pilot. Over 30 copies of the
prototype notebook are in use at sites around the world.
Netsolve software publically released. With interfaces to Java,
Matlab, Fortran, and C, NetSolve provides agents that search the
network for NetSolve servers willing to perform the requested
Billion particle molecular dynamics simulation largest in the world.
MPI Interoperability Forum started to address the issues
of how to get different vendor MPI implementations to
send and receive messages between themselves.
