An Empirical Study of Fortran Programs for Parallelizing Compilers

  title={An Empirical Study of Fortran Programs for Parallelizing Compilers},
  author={Zhiyu Shen and Zhiyuan Li and Pen-Chung Yew},
  journal={IEEE Trans. Parallel Distrib. Syst.},
n this paper, we report some results from an empirical study on program charac-f d teristics that are important to parallelizing compiler writers, especially in the area o ata dependence analysis and program transformations. The state of the art in data dependence analysis and some parallel execution techniques are also examined. The major findings include: (1) Many subscripts contain symbolic terms with e e unknown values. A few methods to determine their values at compile time ar valuated. (2… CONTINUE READING
