This book is produced in the publisher’s Numerical Analysis, and Science Computing Series.
It is now recognised that the integration and convergence of “state-of-the-art” technologies in the grid have enabled more flexible, automatic and complex services to fulfil industrial and commercial needs. These range from the LHC at CERN to meteorological forecasting systems. This book discusses how the novel technologies of the semantic web and workflow have been integrated into the grid and its services. The publishers believe that this book explains how distributed mutual exclusion algorithms offer solutions to transmission and control processes. It also considers the replication problem in data grids with limited replica storage and the problem of data management in grids. The book makes comparisons and efficient solutions given for the reliable executions of applications in computational grid platforms. Further descriptions are given of a fault tolerant distributed scheduling algorithm for large-scale distributed algorithms. Finally, it shows how load balancing is integrated into a real-world scientific application.
