Professor Luecke’s High Performance Computing (HPC) Group is involved in research in the areas of parallel algorithms, parallel tools, and the evaluation of high performance computing systems.  He has had over 60 graduate students, visiting scholars, and post doctoral students. Professor Luecke has been awarded over $6 million in contracts and grants performing a wide variety of research activities for the following organizations: 

He developed a long term relationship with Cray Inc. and had contracts with them from 1992 - 2014.  In 2009, with funding from ORNL his HPC Group developed compile-time error detection tests for UPC and a design document for a run-time error detection tool for UPC.  In 2008, his HPC Group completed the fourth year of a four year grant from the US Department of Defense as part of DARPA’s High Productivity Computing Initiative.  During the first year of this grant, run-time error tests were developed for serial run-time errors.   During the second year of this project, run-time error tests for MPI were developed.  For the third year run-time error tests for OpenMP were developed.   Run-time error tests for UPC tests were developed in the fourth year of this project.
