Open-source application for distributed discovery of prime numbers. The application is capable of looking up numbers from 2 to 263-1 - per project requirements.
It is an academic project. Implemented in pure C99, according to rules of UNIX programming. Therefore, it is POSIX compliant, and therefore it should work without problems in any modern distribution of Linux. Due to the fact that application depends on being launched simultaneously on many machines, portability is a requirement, not an option.
A 3-person team project that we did for Algorithms & Complexity course during our Bachelor studies. The project introduced the problem starting with a rectangular board filled with domino pieces, and defined certain rules for removing them. The task was to design and implement an algorithm that removes (in accordance with rules) as many domino pieces as possible from the board as quickly as possible. Hence the name VaDoR, from VAnishing DOmino pRoblem.
