Compaq Computer Corporation Partnership

Project Leaders:
David Applegate, Robert Bixby, Bill Cook, Alan Cox, Ken Kennedy (Deceased), John Mellor-Crummey, Willy Zwaenepoel

In an effort to foster joint research on high performance computing, Rice and Compaq Computer Corporation have entered into an alliance that involves three research projects:

  • advanced Java compilation (Kennedy)
  • memory hierarchy management and OpenMP (Kennedy, Cox, Mellor-Crummey, Zwaenepoel)
  • integer and mixed-integer programming (Cook, Applegate, Bixby).

In addition, there is a major computational facility consisting of forty-eight Compaq Alpha processors. This partnership is the first step in what is seen as a much broader collaboration between Rice and Compaq.
