Amdahl Corporation was an information technology company which specialized in IBM mainframe-compatible computer products, some of which were regarded as supercomputers competing with those from Cray Research. Founded in by Gene Amdahl, a former IBM computer engineer best known as chief architect of System/, it has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Fujitsu since Founder: Gene Amdahl.

This book is an excellent introduction to Algebra. I hesitate to even call this book an introduction because it's much more than that-the understanding it provides ends up opening up some pretty deep concepts. Trust me, to actually understand "why" makes the doing of something a whole lot easier/5(37).

There Are No Electrons: Electronics for Earthlings by some say it helped to inspire that may be the only "introduction to electronics books" with back cover comments by Dave Barry, Ray Bradbury, Clive Cussler, and George Garrett, as well as recomendations from Robert Hazen, Bob Mostafapour, Dr.

Roger Young, Dr. Wayne Green /5(94). Amdahl's Law views programs as fixed and the computer as changeable, but experience indicates that as computers get new capabilities, applications change to exploit these features. Most of today's applications would not run on computers from 10 years ago, and many would run poorly on machines that are just 5 years old.

The production, is at times, a little weak, but the heart-rending "ax * ax + bx + c = 0" recorded live in Lecture Theatre is probably one of Algebra's finest moments.

This book is an excellent introduction to /5(37). This is a book that encourages teachers to embrace and encourage writing that is not a follow-on to a writing lesson.

Amdahl is one of the people who founded the Writer's Workshop movement, so he is not suggesting that WW be set aside, but rather that teachers create opportunities for writing that are not graded or workshopped, just appreciated/5.

In the ’s, Gene Amdahl determined the potential speed up of a parallel program, now known as Amdahl’s Law. This law states that the maximum speed-up of the program is limited by the fraction of the code that can be parallelised S +P = 1 ⇒ SU = 1 S.

In computer architecture, Amdahl's law (or Amdahl's argument) is a formula which gives the theoretical speedup in latency of the execution of a task at fixed workload that can be expected of a system whose resources are improved. It is named after computer scientist Gene Amdahl, and was presented at the AFIPS Spring Joint Computer Conference in Gene Myron Amdahl, American computer scientist (born Nov.

The importance of accounting for nonlinear effects in offshore structures has increased due to their higher utilization and extended service lives.

Amdahl's law is an expression used to find the maximum expected improvement to an overall system when only part of the system is improved. It is often used in parallel computing to predict the theoretical maximum speedup using multiple processors.

The theory of doing computational work in parallel has some fundamental laws that place limits on the benefits one can derive from parallelizing a computation (or really, any kind of work).
