Contribution of the week (week 12)

During this week I included in the wiki information about Parallel programming on xbox 360.

We can use this applications for Cardiac Research, I also added some information about how this can be done. 

The Xbox 360 system has a single chip (with 165 million transistors) for its CPU. This chip is in fact a three-way symmetric multiprocessor design.

With the help of this chip, one can model how electrical excitations in the heart move around damaged cardiac cells. This could be useful to investigate or even predict cardiac arrhythmias (abnormal electrical activity in the heart which can lead to a heart attack).

Carmen: Open source high-throughput software for distributed parallelization of computationally intensive tasks.

List of words

Here I'm going to write the definition of some words:

Resolve: To reach a decision or make a determination or decision.

It's the process of selecting paths in a network along which to send network traffic.

It's a phenomenon where the performance or capacity of an entire system is limited by a single or limited number of components or resources.

The opposite of continuous: something that is separate; distinct; individual.

Locate: To determine or specify the position or limits

Protocol: Set of rules used by computers for communicate one to another through a network by message exchange

Physical: Hardware, something that can be touched.

Client: It's an application or system that accesses a service made available by a server

Contributions of the week (week 11)

This week I helped with the organization  and translation of the applications and main page of the wiki.

I also added some information about LAAMMPS (Large-scale Atomic/Molecular Massively Parallel Simulator). It is a molecular dynamics simulation code designed to run on parallel computers.

Here is the link to the wiki of LAAMMPS.

I added the description of some of the features and information about the installation.

My nominations of this week are for david sosa because of the information he added of the MPI in python.
I also nominate abraham because of his idea of the web crawler.
