This paper considers the problem of sequencing a set of parallel activities in the presence of non-zero overheads. Mechanisms for sequence control may range from explicit inter-task synchronization to more restrictive mechanisms such as blocking barriers. It is highly desirable to be able to base the choice of a sequence control mechanism for a parallel algorithm upon specific characteristics of the algorithm's structure and the underlying architecture. A large class of parallel computations… CONTINUE READING
