Phase A Algorithm Requirements

At the end of eSDO's Phase A in September 2005, research for each of the SolarAlgorithms will be collated into one deliverable (1121), a document that summarises the proposed solutions for each algorithms. The initial solutions should be written up by 29 July 2005. The writeup of each algorithm's proposed solution should contain the following elements:

  • Inputs: files and / or variables input to the algorithm
  • Outputs: files and / or variables returned from the algorithm
  • User interface: commandline, GUI, SolarSoft, etc.
  • Grid interface: web service (SOAP / other), Astrogrid CEA tool, ION, etc.
  • Science use case: a use case describes the steps of the workflow from the perspective of a single user - in this case, a scientist. The science use case will summarise the above information by detailing how the scientist calls and submits information to the algorithm, any intermediate interaction with the algorithm during processing, and what output the scientist can expect to receive from the algorithm.
  • Technical use case: this use case views the algorithm from the perspective of the computer system - how is the algorithm invoked, where does it receive input from (and in what formats), which routines are called during execution of the algorithm, what format is used to return output, and where is the output returned to (the commandline, the screen, Astrogrid MySpace, or another algorithm?) It is not expected that routines will be explicited named at the end of Phase A. Instead, the steps of the routined should be outlined with as much detail as available at the time of writing up.
  • Quicklook products: what, if any, quicklook products will result from the algorithm? What format will they take?
  • Support information: references from literature searches, identification of existing routines that can be used or adapted, outlines of new routines that may be required, or any code libraries that may be required.
