I am going to teach a graduate-level course on
parallel architectures in the Fall. It will be really nice
if the students can have access to at least
a couple of different parallel architecture simulators
Please let me know (by email, I will summarize)
how to go about obtaining the simulators for one or more of
the following machines: (The simulators should be
able to run in an Un*x environment)

Intel hypercubes
BBN Butterfly
The connection machine
Sequent Balance/Symmetry(?)
etc.
etc.

Thanks for your time

Subject: dynamics simulation package

We are looking for a multi-body dynamics simulation package
for use with robotics simulation. We would like to know if anybody
has any experience in using any, or has one to offer. Any help is
much appreciated.
