Performance Evaluation of Parallel Computational Geometry Algorithms

The goal of this project is to create an experimental environment for analyzing and evaluating the performance of parallel computational geometry algorithms. The environment has three major components: a data-acquiring system, a communication system, and a computation system. The data-acquiring system will be established using graphic user interface technology so that the user can freely define the scenarios for testing and evaluation purposes. The communication system is based on the UNIX PC mechanism using TCP/IP protocols and works as a connection component between the data-acquiring and computation systems. The computation system is dedicated to the implementation of the existing and newly developed parallel computation geometry algorithms on the supercomputers.
