Perspectives on robust resource allocation for heterogeneous parallel and distributed systems

Chapter

Abstract

  • © 2007 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. This research focuses on the robustness of a resource allocation in parallel and distributed computing systems. What does robustness mean? Some dictionary definitions of robustness are (i) strong and healthy, as in “a robust person” or “a robust mind,” (ii) sturdy or strongly formed, as in “a robust plastic,” (iii) suited to or requiring strength as in “a robust exercise” or “robust work,” (iv) firm in purpose or outlook as in “robust faith,” (v) full-bodied as in “robust coffee,” and (vi) rough or rude as in “stories laden with robust humor.” In the context of resource allocation in parallel and distributed computing systems, how is the concept of robustness defined?.
