A Data Structure for Managing Parallel Operations

  title={A Data Structure for Managing Parallel Operations},
  author={Carl D. Offner},
The data distribution directives of High Performance Fortran (HPF) provide a high-level way of describing the location of regularly distributed data which is acted on in parallel. Parallel data is acted on by parallel computations. The distribution of parallel computations is not speciied in HPF, but is left up to the compiler|typically, the owner-computes rule is used, not always the best choice. We present a set of data structures which describe data layout, consistent both with HPF… CONTINUE READING
