Abstract

In this paper we present an account of an undergraduate team‐based assignment designed to facilitate, exhibit and record team‐working skills in an e‐mediated environment. By linking the student feedback received to Hofstede’s classic model of cultural dimensions we aim to show the assignment’s suitability in revealing the student’s multi‐cultural context. In addition to anecdotal evidence we also present a quantitative analysis that shows that the desired learning outcomes have been met. In a further discussion we show how the qualitative data collected can be used to quantitatively determine a cultural fingerprint of the groups that is useful to predict the team’s suitability for a given task in a real‐world project.

Abstract

Discusses a parallel algorithm for the finite‐difference time domain method. In particular, investigates electromagnetic field propagation in two and three dimensions. The computational intensity of such problems necessitates the use of multiple processors to realise solutions to interesting problems in a reasonable time. Presents the parallel algorithm with examples, and uses aspects of graph theory to examine the communication overhead of the algorithm in practice. This is achieved by observing the dynamically changing adjacency matrix of the communications graph.
