ORNL researchers demonstrate benefits of asynchronous programming in UPC

Aniruddha Shet (from Computer Science Research Group, CSMD) and Vinod Tipparaju from the Future Technologies group at ORNL have implemented a prototype and demonstrated advantages of asynchronous remote methods (ARM) in UPC. In a paper presented at the APGAS 2009 workshop held in conjunction with 23rd International Conference on Supercomputing (ISC 2009), the team adopt the asynchronous style of programming to parallelize a nested, tree-based code in UPC.
