Description of the research topic:

Many core computers are the current approach to the solution of computationally intensive problems. At the present day, many core may mean 1000 but soon few 100000 or even more processing elements will be available on a desktop machine.
New ideas and new methods are required in algorithm development for these types of architectures. Using the cellular architecture of processors and memories new kind of parallel algorithms have to be developed. For the same Physical multi-cellular machine architecture different Virtual Machines can be defined, the latter is serving for algorithmic and software development. All computing element has a geometrical position on the Physical Machine and a geometric or topographic address on the Virtual Machine. In this new scenario of computer science and computer engineering computational complexity, computing power is a multi-parameter vector, any algorithm solving a problem will have a speed-power-area-bandwidth-accuracy metric. These parameters and this metric should be handled simultaneously and optimized.
