High Throughput Computing (HTC) environments strive “to provide large amounts of processing capacity to customers over long periods of time by exploiting existing resources on the network” according to Basney and Livny [1]. A single Blue Gene/L rack can pr...
FPGA Implementation of a Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics Algorithm Using Logarithmic Arithmetic
Found in: Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium, International
By Owen Callanan, Andy Nisbet, Emre Özer, James Sexton, David Gregg
Issue Date:April 2005
pp. 146b
In this paper, we discuss the implementation of a lattice Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) application to a Xilinx VirtexII FPGA device on an Alpha Data ADM-XRC-II board using Handel-C and logarithmic arithmetic. The specific algorithm implemented is the Wilso...
