A Unified Approach to Parallel Programming

  title={A Unified Approach to Parallel Programming},
  author={Victor Eijkhout},
We propose a new theoretical model for parallelism. The model is explictly based on data and work distributions, a feature missing from other theoretical models. The major theoretic result is that data movement can then be derived by formal reasoning. While the model has an immediate interpretation in distributed memory parallelism, we show that it can also… CONTINUE READING
