This paper presents a new model for word alignments between parallel sentences, which allows one to accurately estimate different parameters, in a computationally efficient way. An application of this model to bilingual terminology extraction, where terms are identified in one language and guessed, through the alignment process, in the other one, is also described. An experiment conducted on a small English-French parallel corpus gave results with high precision, demonstrating the validity of the model. ...
Two decades ago when we wrote Spectral Methods in Fluid Dynamics (1988),
the subject was still fairly novel. Motivated by the many favorable comments
we have received and the continuing interest in that book (which will be
referred to as CHQZ1), and yet desiring to present a more modern perspective,
we embarked on the project which resulted in our recent book (Canuto
et al. (2006), referred to as CHQZ2) and the present new book (referred to

Computational Fluid Dynamics, broadly encompassing fluid flows in engineering, atmospheric and ocean sciences, geophysics, physics and astrophysics, has seen calculations of great fidelity performed routinely that were only imagined at the inception of this conference series in 1989. These advances have not only been made with the available horsepower of increasingly more powerful parallel computers, but in tandem with advances in implementations of core and of entirely new algorithms, including multi-scale and adaptive methods....
Metadata associated with each document indicate its status in the process, and it changes as each task is completed: first draft, edited, final draft, translated, published. In this example the sequence of tasks is linear, even if the document edited must be revised by the Author before going to the next step. Workflow processes can be more complex; for example, they can include parallel flows, multiple feedback or control loops.
Difficulty in accessing ground water without disturbing ground-water flow patterns,
chemistry, microbiology, and the physical and chemical makeup of formation materials
has made accurate characterization of in situ ground-water conditions a very challenging
The detailed cost estimating process, like the manufacture of a product, is comprised of parallel and
sequential steps that flow together and interact to culminate in a completed estimate. Figure 70.1
shows the anatomy of a detailed estimate.
Serial Connection And Parallel Connection
Figure 1 shows the most basic and commonly used circuits for driving light-emitting diodes. In Figure 1(A), a constant voltage source (VCC ) is connected through a current limiting resistor (R) to an LED so that it is supplied with forward current (IF). The IF current flowing through the LED is expressed as IF = (V CC - VF)/R, providing a radiant flux proportional to the IF. The forward voltage (V F) of the LED is dependent on the value of IF, but it is approximated by a constant voltage when setting R. Figures 1(B) and...
Greenplum’s SG Streaming™ technology ensures parallelism by “scattering” data from all source systems across
hundreds or thousands of parallel streams that simultaneously flow to all Greenplum Database nodes (Figure 11).
Performance scales with the number of Greenplum Database nodes, and the technology supports both large batch
and continuous near-real-time loading patterns with negligible impact on concurrent database operations.
Those Albanians with dependent family members in the home country tend to send small amounts on
a regular basis, usually via courier. Others who do not regularly remit tend to save larger amounts, which
they take with them upon returning to Albania. In addition, several Greek banks have begun operations in
Albania, facilitating the flow of remittances and opening opportunities for greater financial access for
remittance senders and their families.
Out-migration of people from Portugal paralleled the growth of remittances received.
At the heart of Greenplum Database is the Parallel Dataflow
Engine. This is where the real work of processing and analyzing
data is done. The Parallel Dataflow Engine is an optimized
parallel processing infrastructure that is designed to process
data as it flows from disk, from external files or applications, or
from other segments over the gNet interconnect (Figure 9).
The engine is inherently parallel—it spans all segments of a
Greenplum cluster and can scale effectively to thousands of
commodity processing cores.
Greenplum utilizes a “parallel-everywhere” approach to loading, in which data flows from one or more source systems
to every node of the database without any sequential choke points. This approach differs from traditional “bulk loading”
technologies—used by most mainstream database and MPP appliance vendors—which push data from a single
source, often over a single channel or a small number of parallel channels, and result in fundamental bottlenecks and
ever- increasing load times.
Some parallel disk gate valves used in high pressure systems are made with an integral
bonnet vent and bypass line. A three-way valve is used to position the line to bypass in
order to equalize pressure across the disks prior to opening. When the gate valve is
closed, the three-way valve is positioned to vent the bonnet to one side or the other.
This prevents moisture from accumulating in the bonnet. The three-way valve is
positioned to the high pressure side of the gate valve when closed to ensure that flow
does not bypass the isolation valve.
This guide is an ideal learning tool and reference for Apache Pig, the open source engine for executing parallel data flows on Hadoop. With Pig, you can batch-process data without having to create a full-fledged application—making it easy for you to experiment with new datasets.
Programming Pig introduces new users to Pig, and provides experienced users with comprehensive coverage on key features such as the Pig Latin scripting language, the Grunt shell, and User Defined Functions (UDFs) for extending Pig. ...
