Scheduling Nonlinear Computational Loads:
(College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, 2006-09-05)
A scheduling model is studied where the computing time function of each node is a nonlinear function of the size of its assigned load. Speedup and closed form solutions for optimal load allocation are obtained for ...
Scheduling Nonlinear Computational Loads
(State University of New York at Stony Brook, College of Engineering., 2004-04-12)
It is demonstrated that supra-linear (greater than linear) speedup is possible in processing distributed divisible computational loads when computation time is a nonlinear function of load size. This result is radically ...
