Skin is our primary barrier to the outside world, protecting us from physical, biological and chemical threats. Developing innovative products that preserve and improve skin barrier function requires a thorough understanding of the mechanisms underlying barrier response to topical applications. In many fields, computer simulations already facilitat...

Motivation: Biological system behaviors are often the outcome of complex interactions among a large number of cells and their biotic and abiotic environment. Computational biologists attempt to understand, predict and manipulate biological system behavior through mathematical modeling and computer simulation. Discrete agent-based modeling (in comb...
Article
Full-text available
Mathematical modeling and computer simulation are important tools for understanding complex interactions between cells and their biotic and abiotic environment: similarities and differences between modeled and observed behavior provide the basis for hypothesis formation. Momeni et al. (Elife 2:e00230, 2013) investigated pattern formation in communi...

Modern multicore and manycore systems have the strong potential to deliver both high performance and high power efficiency. The large variance in memory access latency, resource sharing, and the heterogeneity of processor architectures in modern multicore and manycore systems raise significant algorithm engineering challenges. In this article, we o...

Maximum parsimony (MP) methods aim to reconstruct the phylogeny of extant species by finding the most parsimonious evolutionary scenario using the species' genome data. MP methods are considered to be accurate, but they are also computationally expensive especially for a large number of species. Several disk-covering methods (DCMs), which decompose...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Complex networks capture interactions among entities in various application areas in a graph representation. Analyzing large scale complex networks often answers important questions-e.g. estimate the spread of epidemic diseases-but also imposes computing challenges mainly due to large volumes of data and the irregular structure of the graphs. In th...

In this paper, we empirically evaluate fundamental de- sign trade-offs among the most recent multicore processors and accelerator technologies. Our primary aim is to aid application designers in better mapping their software to the most suitable architecture, with an additional goal of influencing future computing system design. We specifi- cally e...

Discrete transforms are of primary importance and fundamental kernels in many computationally intensive scientific applications. In this paper, we investigate the performance of two such algorithms; Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) and Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT), on the Sony–Toshiba–IBM Cell Broadband Engine (Cell/B.E.), a heterogeneous multicore...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Due to power wall, memory wall, and ILP wall, we are facing the end of ever increasing single-threaded performance. For this reason, multicore and manycore processors are arising as a new paradigm to pursue. However, to fully exploit all the cores in a chip, parallel programming is often required, and the complexity of parallel programming raises a...

JPEG2000 is the latest still image coding standard from the JPEG committee, which adopts new algorithms such as Embedded Block Coding with Optimized Truncation (EBCOT) and Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT). These algorithms enable superior coding performance over JPEG and support various new features at the cost of the increased computational comple...
Article
The Sony–Toshiba–IBM Cell Broadband Engine (Cell/B.E.) is a heterogeneous multicore architecture that consists of a traditional microprocessor (PPE) with eight SIMD co-processing units (SPEs) integrated on-chip. While the Cell/B.E. processor is architected for multimedia applications with regular processing requirements, we are interested in its pe...
