This paper argues for an implicitly parallel programming model for many-core microprocessors, and provides initial technical approaches towards this goal. In an implicitly parallel programming model, programmers maximize algorithm-level parallelism, express their parallel algorithms by asserting high-level properties on top of a traditional sequential programming language, and rely on parallelizing compilers and hardware support to perform parallel execution under the hood. In such a model… CONTINUE READING
