Storaasli reviews the State-of-the-Art in Heterogeneous Computing

Recent work by ORNL researcher Olaf Storaasli in collaboration with four Oslo colleagues at SINTEF (Norwegian NSF) has resulted in a comprehensive (31 page, 185 references) publication entitled \State-of-the-Art in Heterogeneous Computing\ recently published by the Journal of Scientific Programming, IOS Press. The publication identifies the key advances and trends over the years in computer hardware and software leading up to accelerators (Cell, GPU and FPGA) used in current and future High-Performance Supercomputers.
