Parallel processing has been an enabling technology in scientific computing for more than 20 years. This book is the first in-depth discussion of parallel computing in 10 years; it reflects the mix of topics that mathematicians, computer scientists, and computational scientists focus on to make parallel processing effective for scientific problems. Presently, the impact of parallel processing on scientific computing varies greatly across disciplines, but it plays a vital role in most problem domains and is absolutely essential in many of them. Parallel Processing for Scientific Computing is divided into four parts: The first concerns performance modeling, analysis, and optimization; the second focuses on parallel algorithms and software for an array of problems common to many modeling and simulation applications; the third emphasizes tools and environments that can ease and enhance the process of application development; and the fourth provides a sampling of applications that require parallel computing for scaling to solve larger and realistic models that can advance science and engineering.An intruder has a probability 1 a€” e71a#39; of evading detection along a path with length L. Thus the shortest path corresponds to the path with maximum ... In the shortest-path interdiction problem, we pay to increase edge lengths in a network to maximize the resulting shortest path. ... In any optimal solution, d, is the length of the shortest path from the start node s to node v after the edge-length increases.
