CSE 591n: Configurable Computing Seminar
Spring 2007
Instructor: Carl Ebeling
Time: Friday 2:30-3:20
Place: Allen 503 (first meeting is in Allen 303 (3/30))

We will start out by reading some recent papers on models for programming hybrid systems, and then move on to looking at several applications and consider how to map them to coarse-grained configurable fabrics, possibly considering hybrid platforms.
The applications currently under consideration are: Principal Components Analysis (PCA), Matched Filters, FFT and Molecular Dynamics
