Efficient Generation of Mandelbrot Set Using Message Passing Interface

FIT3143 - Parallel Computing Project

With the increasing need for safer and reliable systems, Mandelbrot Set's use in the encryption world is evident to everyone. This document aims to provide an efficient method to generate this set using data parallelism. First Bernstein's conditions are used to ensure that the Data is parallelizable when generating the Mandelbrot Set. Then Amdhal's Law is used to calculate the theoretical speed up, to be used to compare three partition schemes. The three partition schemes discussed in this document are the Naïve Row Segmentation, the First Come First Served Row Segmentation and the Alternating Row Segmentation. The Message Parsing Interface (MPI) library in C is used for all of the communication. After testing all the implementation on MonARCH, the results demonstrate that the Naïve Row Segmentation approach did not perform as par. But the Alternating Row Segmentation approach performs better when the number of tasks are <16, where as the First Come First Served approach performs better when the number of tasks is ≥16.

Simulation and Analysis of Distributed Wireless Sensor Network using Message Passing Interface

FIT3143 - Parallel Computing Project

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) are used by many industries from environment monitoring systems to NASA's space exploration programs, as it has allowed society to monitor and prevent problems before they occur with less cost and maintenance. This document aims to propose and analyze an efficient inter process communication (IPC) architecture using a nearest neighbor/grid based socket architecture. A parallelized version of the AES encryption algorithm is also used in order to increase the security of the WSN. First the proposed architecture is compared and contrasted against other well established architectures. Next, the benefits and drawbacks of the AES encryption algorithm is elucidated. The Message Parsing Interface (MPI) library in C is used for the communication while OpenMP is used for parallelizing the encryption algorithm. Next an analysis is performed on the results obtained from multiple simulations. Finally a conclusion is made that the grid based IPC architecture with AES parallel encryption helps WSNs maintain security in communication while being cost and power efficient to operate.

Interests

Apart from being a software engineer, I enjoy most of my time being outdoors. I enjoy hiking, photography and long road trips. Doing the Everest base camp trek with my significant other is one of my life goals.

When forced indoors, I enjoy playing racing simulators and watching movies. I also spend a large amount of my free time exploring the latest advancements in the apple eco-system and tech.
