PDFs of Monday 19 September

Already the fourth PDF-Monday. It takes quite some time, so I might keep it to 10 in the future – but till then enjoy! Not sure which to read? Pick the first one (for the rest there is not order).

Edit: and the last one, follow me on twitter to see the PDFs I’m reading. Reason is that hardly anyone clicked on the links to the PDFs.

I would like if you let others know in the comments which PDF you liked a lot.

Adding Physics to Animated Characters with Oriented Particles (Matthias Müller and Nuttapong Chentanez). Discusses how to accelerate movements of pieces of cloth attached to the bodies. Not time to read? There are nice pictures.

John F. Peddy’s analysis on the GPU market.

Hardware/Software Co-Design. Simple Solution to the Matrix Multiplication Problem using CUDA.

CUDA Based Algorithms for Simulating Cardiac Excitation Waves in a Rabbit Ventricle. Bioinformatics.

Real-time implementation of Bayesian models for multimodal perception using CUDA.

GPU performance prediction using parametrized models (Master-thesis by Andreas Resios)

A Parallel Ray Tracing Architecture Suitable for Application-Specific Hardware and GPGPU Implementations (Alexandre S. Nery, Nadia Nedjah, Felipe M.G. Franca, Lech Jozwiak)

Rapid Geocoding of Satellite SAR Images with Refined RPC Model. An ESA-presentation by Lu Zhang, Timo Balz and Mingsheng Liao.

A Parallel Algorithm for Flight Route Planning with CUDA (Master-thesis by Seçkîn Sanci). About the travelling salesman problem and much more.

Color-based High-Speed Recognition of Prints on Extruded Materials. Product-presentation on how to OCR printed text on cables.

Supplementary File of Sequence Homology Search using Fine-Grained Cycle Sharing of Idle GPUs (Fumihiko Ino, Yuma Munekawa, and Kenichi Hagihara). They sped up the BOINC-system (Folding@Home). Bit vague what they want to tell, but maybe you find it interesting.

Parallel Position Weight Matrices Algorithms (Mathieu Giraud, Jean-Stéphane Varré). Bioinformatics, DNA.

GPU-based High Performance Wave Propagation Simulation of Ischemia in Anatomically Detailed Ventricle (Lei Zhang, Changqing Gai, Kuanquan Wang, Weigang Lu, Wangmeng Zuo). Computation in medicine. Ischemia is a restriction in blood supply, generally due to factors in the blood vessels, with resultant damage or dysfunction of tissue

Per-Face Texture Mapping for Realtime Rendering. A Siggraph2011 presentation by Disney and NVidia.

Introduction to Parallel Computing. The CUDA 101 by Victor Eijkhout of University of Texas.

Optimization on the Power Efficiency of GPU and Multicore Processing Element for SIMD Computing. Presentation on what you find out when putting the volt-meter directly on the GPU.

NUDA: Programming Graphics Processors with Extensible Languages. Presentation on NUDA to write less code for GPGPU.

Qt FRAMEWORK: An introduction to a cross platform application and user interface framework. Presentation on the Qt-platform – which has great #OpenCL-support.

Data Assimilation on future computer architectures. The problems projected for 2020.

Current Status of Standards for Augmented Reality (Christine Perey1, Timo Engelke and Carl Reed). not much to do with OpenCL, but tells an interesting purpose for it.

Parallel Computations of Vortex Core Structures in Superconductors (Master-thesis by Niclas E. Wennerdal).

Program the SAME Here and Over There: Data Parallel Programming Models and Intel Many Integrated Core Architecture. Presentation on how to program the Intel MIC.

Large-Scale Chemical Informatics on GPUs (Imran S. Haque, Vijay S. Pande). Book-chapter on the design and optimization of GPU implementations of two popular chemical similarity techniques: Gaussian shape overlay (GSO) and LINGO.

WebGL, WebCL and Beyond! A presentation by Neil Trevett of NVidia/Khronos.

Biomanycores, open-source parallel code for many-core bioinformatics (Mathieu Giraud, Stéphane Janot, Jean-Frédéric Berthelot, Charles Delte, Laetitia Jourdan , Dominique Lavenier , Hélène Touzet, Jean-Stéphane Varré). A short description on the project http://www.biomanycores.org.
