Description 
       
     On or about Spetember 1, 2000 NASA Langley Research Center will
     solicit proposals for algorithms in analysis and optimization in aerospace
     engineering capable of effectively exploiting concurrently operating
     processors whose number may be very large; hundreds of thousands,
     even millions are expected to become available within two decades. The
     intent is to stimulate innovation, including new paradigms for intrisically
     concurrent solutions in analysis and optimization in major aerospace
     applications which are now stymied by too high cost and too long
     turn-around times. A previous NRA addressed the same topic in 1998
     and instigated research that resulted in a number of publications. The
     next generation research on this topic called for herein should include an
     assessment of the method's strengths and shortcomings from the future
     user's point of view. Awards, single or multiple, will be granted within a
     total of $400K for the first year, with a continuation of the initial awards
     at NASA'S option for two more years at up to $400K per year. Awards
     instruments may include contracts, grants, and/or cooperative
     agreements. Cost sharing agreements may be proposed. Technical
     questions may be addressed to Dr. Jaroslaw Sobieski at
     j.sobieski at larc.nasa.gov, or to the Contracting Officer.
