Enabling Technologies for High Performance Computing

Wide area computer networks have become a basic part of today's computing infrastructure. These networks connect a variety of machines, presenting an enormous computing resource.
In this talk we focus on developing methods and tools which allow a programmer to tap into this resource. In this talk we describe tools such as ScaLAPACK, NetSolve, PVM, MPI, and, tools and methodology under development that assists a programmer in developing programs to execute on a parallel computer.
