An OGSA Component-Based Approach to Middleware for Statistical Modelling



The aim of this project is to demonstrate the effectiveness of an Open Grid Services Architecture (TOGAS) component-based approach to middleware for handling some of the large-scale statistical modelling problems currently confronting e-social scientists. The key objectives of the project are: (i) to develop a serial and parallel TOGAS implementation of SABRE with extended facilities for multilevel multiprocess modelling; (ii) the make the source code of the original and parallel versions of SABRE freely available; (iii) to compare the performance of the sequential version of SABRE and equivalent MLwiN and STATA (GLAMM) analyses with that of the parallel version of SABRE using two substantive pieces of research as illustrations; (iv) to make the serial and parallel versions of SABRE freely available as R Objects for use in the R statistics and computing system; (v) to explore the possibility of a Web portal to SABRE and SABRE within R
