Mathieu Djamaï, Bilel Derbel, and Nouredine Melab

Contents

4.1 Introduction

4.1.1 Motivations

Today, more and more computational resources are needed to tackle real-life combinatorial optimization problems, for example, in physics, bioinformatics, and graphical simulation. Indeed, these kinds of problems require a huge amount of computational resources to be solved in an optimal way. However, even having huge computational power at hand, it is not straightforward to design efficient large-scale software platforms and algorithms that allow us to fully take advantage of these resources available from both large-scale computational ...
