APE/Quadrics at DESY
DESY, the German HEP lab,
is currently configuring a
APE was developed by
INFN, Rome, and is now sold
under the name
Quadrics by Alenia Spazio, S.p.A., Italy.
It is a massively parallel SIMD machine, currently used at DESY for
Lattice Gauge Theory simulations.
- The commercial version of the APE is called
Description of the hardware of this SIMD parallel computer. Currently, there
are two Q16 and one Q1 machines operating (see also:
- Previously called
APESE. The own (Fortranish) language
of this machine.
- The compiler language.
- These postscript files are slightly out of date but give you a good
first impression of the machine architecture and its programming language.
- APE a Roma
- APE page from Rome University "La Sapienza" with papers on the machine and various applications.
- Index of papers from Rome, including work
done at DESY.
- For friends of the Italian language:
I Calcolatori Paralleli APE dell' INFN,
the project description from Universita' di Pisa.
YCPS at Yale, and the
CICA in Indiana, are one out of many places pursuing research in parallel supercomputing.

distributed and parallel programming collected by Jonathan Wang,
FreeHEP parallel tools, and
other HPC research groups.
