Background

Utilities

A useful thing would be a user-administration tool that synchronizes all the users of all the nodes so they match the login node. If this thing ran in parallel on all the nodes, it would be way cool. Or use NIS. Already done with CMS.

Applications

  • Audio FFT analyzer that recognizes instruments and music.
  • Parallel compilation of large projects.
  • evolutionary algorithms for designing analog circuits (See "Evolving Inventions," Scientific American, February 2003.)
  • generalized multiprocessing evolutionary algorithm
