Desktop grid systems and applications have generated significant impacts on science and engineering. The emerging convergence
of grid and peer-to-peer (P2P) computing technologies further opens new opportunities for enabling P2P Desktop Grid systems.
This paper presents a taxonomy for classifying P2P desktop grid implementation paradigms, aiming to summarize the state-of-the-art
technologies and explore the current and potential solution space. To have a comprehensive taxonomy for P2P desktop grid paradigms,
we investigate both computational and data grid systems. Moreover, to ease the understanding, the taxonomy is applied to selected
case studies of P2P desktop grid systems. The taxonomy is expected to be used as a survey of the state-of-the-art, a design
map, a guideline for novice researchers, a common vocabulary, or a design space for simulation and benchmark, and to be extended
as the technologies rapidly evolve.

    • "Aplicações com essas características são abundantes em vários cenários, incluindo mineração de dados, simulações , biologia computacional, entre muitas outras [Cirne et al. 2006]. A demanda de recursos computacionais gerada pelas aplicações do tipo saco-de-tarefas, aliadà a existência de uma grande quantidade de recursos subutilizados pelos seus usuários locais, tem tornado muito popular o uso das grades oportunistas para execução de aplicações científicas [Brasileiro et al. 2011, Zhao et al. 2011].

    ABSTRACT: Grades computacionais entre-pares são infraestruturas de computação amplamente utilizadas para executar aplicações científicas. Este trabalho apresenta evidências de que o consumo de energia dessas grades pode ser reduzido e propõe estratégias para atingir esse objetivo. Resultados obtidos por simulação dirigida por rastros mostram que as estratégias propostas permitem reduzir o uso de energia nessas grades em até 68,53%, com um impacto no tempo de resposta das aplicações de no máximo 3,8% e sem impacto significativo no tempo de vida útil dos recursos.

    ABSTRACT: We discuss some numerical aspects in control theory. Using as the particular example the problem of computing the controllable subspace of a linear time invariant linear system, we show how some classical methods can lead to numerical problems and give some recent results giving bounds on the errors in terms of results obtainable from classical methods.

    ABSTRACT: Effective task scheduling is an important matter for the performance of Grid computing. At the same time, researchers are encountering issues and challenges when dealing with Grid Task Scheduling (GTS) because of various factors or constraints that influence GTS. This is due to the fact that there is an assortment of characteristics and types of scheduling in Grids. This paper reviews the GTS problems specifically in the Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Desktop Grids by identifying the factors such as uncertainties, interruptions, and disturbances that have to be considered when designing the scheduling algorithm. The cause and effect of each factor are also enlightened. The factors are then classified according to the most concerned aspects based on the management layers of P2P Desktop Grid architecture proposed earlier in the related study. The findings may provide some significant guide to model more effective GTS mechanisms in P2P Desktop Grids.
