Parallel Computing is at the verge of a new era. Multi-core processors make parallel computing a fundamental skill required by all computer scientists. At the same time, high-end systems have surpassed the Peta?op barrier, and s- ni?cant e?orts are devoted to the development of hardware and software te- nologies for the next-generation Exascale systems. To reach this next stage, processor architectures, high-speed interconnects and programming models will go through dramatic changes. The Message Passing Interface (MPI) has been the most widespread programming model for parallel systems of today. A key questions of upcoming Exascale systems is whether and how MPI has to evolve inordertomeettheperformanceandproductivitydemandsofExascalesystems.

August Wilhelm (later: von) Schlegel (1767-1845) was a German poet, translator, critic, and a foremost leader of German Romanticism. He was educated at the Hanover gymnasium and at the university of Göttingen. With his brother Friedrich, the principal philosopher of German romanticism, he founded Athenaeum (1798-1800), the chief journal of the movement. In 1802 Schlegel went to Berlin, where he delivered lectures on art and literature; and in the following year he published Ion (1803). His Lectures on Dramatic Art and Literature (Über dramatische Kunst und Literatur, 1809-1811), which have been translated into most European languages, were delivered at Vienna in 1808. In 1813 he acted as secretary of the crown prince of Sweden, through whose influence the right of his family to noble rank was revived. Schlegel was made a professor of literature at the university of Bonn in 1818, and during the remainder of his life occupied himself chiefly with oriental studies, although he continued to lecture on art and literature.

Called Out of Darkness Into Marvelous Light

Description: In the conflicted world that is today's Episcopal Church, the diocese of Pittsburgh stands both as a symbol of dissent and schism to the liberal majority within the American Church and as a beacon of light and hope to conservative Anglicans across the United States. Set in the unlikely surroundings of America's Rust Belt, Pittsburgh's Episcopalians have over the past half century undergone a dramatic reordering of priorities to embrace a novel--though hardly unprecedented--vision of Anglican confessionalism. Called out of Darkness into Marvelous Light traces the development of an Anglican presence in western Pennsylvania from the missionary activity of the late eighteenth century through the triumphs of post-Civil War Anglo-Catholicism and the first stirrings of the Social Gospel, to the unprecedented religious revival of the 1950s. Championed by such men as Bishop Austin Pardue and Samuel Moor Shoemaker, the founder of the Pittsburgh Experiment, a prayer-centered spirituality developed in the Pittsburgh diocese and brought a generation of active evangelicals to the region during the 1960s and 1970s. The founding of Trinity Episcopal School for Ministry in the mid-1970s consolidated the evangelical presence in the diocese and provoked a commitment to spiritual renewal that sat uneasily with many in the wider Episcopal Church. Grounded in local research, this study seeks to explore the process by which Pittsburgh acquired its present evangelical identity and to reveal the increasingly intricate web of relationships that it now enjoys beyond America's borders. Endorsements: ''Called Out of Darkness Into Marvelous Light is a scholarly, accessible, and timely history of one of the most important forces in the present Reformation of Anglicanism and, in turn, of contemporary Western Christianity. Dr. Bonner examines the factors contributing to the realization of Dr. Sam Shoemaker's vision (that someday Pittsburgh would be ''as famous for God as for Steel'') in the context of 250 years of Anglican witness in Western Pennsylvania. This book has relevance far beyond the ministry and mission of the particular Christian community it chronicles.'' --The Right Reverend Robert Duncan, Bishop of Pittsburgh; Archbishop-Designate of the Anglican Church in North America. ''Jeremy Bonner presents a detailed, thoughtful, and even-handed account of the history of the Diocese of Pittsburgh, now central to struggles over Anglican identity and authority. Bonner's work combines the satisfying weight of local history with the thought-provoking breadth of national and global implications. This is a fascinating and rewarding read for those seeking to understand the history of the 'culture wars' within the Episcopal Church.'' --The Reverend Miranda K. Hassett, author of Anglican Communion in Crisis: How Episcopal Dissidents and Their Anglican Allies Are Reshaping Anglicanism ''In recent years when I have mentioned that I am from the Diocese of Pittsburgh some have responded by giving me a hug while others have (literally!) turned their backs and walked away. What has made even the mention of this diocese so polarizing? Jeremy Bonner's detailed but readable study of the 250-year history of Anglicanism in western Pennsylvania sheds light on this surprisingly important epicenter in the modern story of Christianity in America and Anglicanism worldwide. Most local histories are relevant and interesting to those who call that place home. This volume should be read much more widely, as this particular local place has become a focal point both for tremendous conflict and renewal.'' --Grant LeMarquand, Trinity School for Ministry About the Contributor(s): Jeremy Bonn

The dramatic representation of maritime spaces, characters and plots in Restoration and early eighteenth-century English theatres served as a crucial discursive negotiation of a burgeoning empire. This study focuses on 'staging the sea' in a period of growing maritime, commercial and colonial activity, a time when the prominence of the sea and shipping was firmly established in the very fabric of English life. As theatres were re-established after the Restoration, playhouses soon became very visible spaces of cultural activity and important locales for staging cultural contact and conflict. Plays staging the sea can be read as central in representing the budding maritime empire to metropolitan audiences, as well as negotiating political power and knowledge about the 'other'. The study explores well-known plays by authors such as Aphra Behn and William Wycherley alongside a host of more obscure plays by authors such as Edward Ravenscroft and Charles Gildon as cultural performances for negotiating cultural identity and difference in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. Dr. Gunda Windmüller was born and raised in Cologne before moving to England, graduating with a BA in Politics and Sociology from the University of York. Returning to Germany, she completed a Masters degree in Comparative Literature, Politics and Sociology at the University of Bonn before completing a PhD in English Literature at the same institution.
