A Typical Verification Challenge for the GRID

08332.vandePolJaco.Paper.1629.pdf (0.1 MB)


A typical verification challenge for the GRID community is presented. The concrete challenge is to implement a simple recursive algorithm for finding the strongly connected components in a graph. The graph is typically stored in the collective memory of a number of computers, so a distributed algorithm is necessary. The implementation should be efficient and scalable, and separate synchronization and implementation details from the purely algorithmic aspects. In the end, a framework is envisaged for distributed algorithms on very large graphs. This would be useful to explore various alternative algorithmic choices.
