We present an object-oriented framework for constructing parallel implementations of stencil algorithms. This framework simplifres the development process by encapsulating the common aspects of stencil algorithms in a base stencil class so that application-specifre derived classes can be easily defined via inheritance and overloading. In addition, the(More)
Developing multi-core computer technology made it practical to accelerate image processing algorithms via parallel running threads. In this study, performance evaluations for parallel image convolution filter on a multi-core computer using Java thread utilities was presented. For this purpose, the efficiency of static and the dynamic load scheduling(More)
