AlgoWiki: Open Encyclopedia of Parallel Algorithmic Features


AlgoWiki is an open encyclopedia of algorithms’ properties and features of their implementations on different hardware and software platforms from mobile to extreme scale, which allows for collaboration with the worldwide computing community on algorithm descriptions.

AlgoWiki provides an exhaustive description of an algorithm. In addition to classical algorithm properties such as serial complexity, AlgoWiki also presents additional information, which together provides a complete description of the algorithm: its parallel complexity, parallel structure, determinacy, data locality, performance and scalability estimates, communication profiles for specific implementations, and many others.
