Graph Theory for Network Communication

When: Fri, October 2, 2015 - 4:00pm
Where: MTH 1310
Speaker: Amanda Streib (Institute for Defense Analyses - Center for Computing Sciences (IDA/CCS)) -
Abstract: In high performance computing, large computations are performed in parallel on a network of computer processors. Periodically, these processors must communicate via network links that can only send one message at a time. We assume that every node wants to send a message to every other node, and try to schedule this communication as efficiently as possible. It turns out that many common HPC architectures can be represented as Cayley graphs, and we can take advantage of the algebraic structure of these graphs to simplify the problem. In the case of diameter 2 networks, we reduce the problem to a job-shop scheduling problem and we find efficient schedules using a standard algorithm for finding perfect matchings in a bipartite graph.
