For our hypergraph partitioner, we chose the number of parts as [m/b], where b is the block size.
Cur rently, a variety of hypergraph partitioners are available: PaToH [4, 5, 6], which was the first hypergraph partitioner to be used for sparse matrix partitioning; hMetis [16], a hypergraph version of the Metis graph partitioner; Mondriaan [23], a two-dimensional hypergraph-based sparse matrix partitioner, which can also be used to solve hypergraph partitioning problems by running it in one-dimensional mode; MONET [15], a hypergraph-based matrix ordering package, which permutes the rows and columns of a matrix to obtain a bordered block-diagonal form; Zoltan [10], a dynamic load balancing library for a wide range of parallel applications, which has recently been extended by a serial hypergraph partitioner [2]; MI-part [3], a multilevel hypergraph partitioner developed for circ[u.

Founded in 1996 in Paris, France, Solsoft has quickly become the leading provider of softwaroduct, Net Partitioner, is targeted at large enterprise organizations seeking to define and automate the implementation and management of global network access policy -- the partitioning of the network into secure zones -- with well-defined rules controlling the IP service flows between them.
Solsoft's Net Partitioner can now enable complete access security policy definition and implementation on all Nortel Networks Passport integrated routing cards.
Through the SimMatrix electrical simulator backplane and SimPrism multi-source partitioner, designers can seamlessly combine and concurrently apply simulation tools from Analogy, Cadence, Chronologic, IBM, IKOS, Mentor Graphics, Synopsys/EPIC, and Viewlogic.
The Partitioner dynamically partitions and switches the synchronous portions of a design to the CBS engine and the asynchronous portion to either the compiled code, interpreted or gate-level simulation engines.

Distrusting mechanistic explanations in terms of economic growth or the European balance, the authors consider the intentions in the minds of the partitioners themselves.
A perfect equality will indeed be produced; that is to say, equal want, equal wretchedness, equal beggary, and on the part of the partitioners, a woeful, helpless, and desperate disappointment.
