Abstract

As exascale computing is looming on the horizon while multicore and GPU's are routinely used, we survey the achievements of Ahmed H. Sameh, a pioneer in parallel matrix algorithms. Studying his contributions since the days of Illiac IV as well as the work that he directed and inspired in the building of the Cedar multiprocessor and his recent research unfolds a useful historical perspective in the field of parallel scientific computing.
