A growing number of DFP solutions have emerged, and developers now have many DFP design choices including arbitrary or fixed precision, binary or decimal significand(More)
Parallel programming is becoming an increasingly popular method of improving computer performance. Unfortunately, parallelized hardware remains expensive in the form of complicated symmetric multiprocessors and high-end server platforms. To provide a more available platform for parallel execution, we revisit the topic of implementing distributed shared(More)
