This paper exhibits the first parallel sort algorithm for shared memory MIMD multiprocessors which has a theoretical and measured speedup near linear. The algorithm is based on a new asynchronous parallel merge which evenly partitions data to be merged between any number of processors. The merge of data sets @ and 63 on p processors has a time complexity of O((l@.l + l @ l ) / p ) + O(1og (min (I@(, 163 I))) in its asynchronous form and a space complexity of 2(l@l + 1631). A benchmark sorting… CONTINUE READING
