On the effective parallel programming of multi-core processors

  title={On the effective parallel programming of multi-core processors},
  author={Ana Lucia Varbanescu},
Multi-core processors are considered now the only feasible alternative to the large single-core processors which have become limited by technological aspects such as power consumption and heat dissipation. However, due to their inherent parallel structure and their diversity, multi-cores are difficult to program. There is a variety of different approaches to simplify multi-core programming, but most of them are only solving parts of the problem, leaving the rest as (unrealistic) assumptions… CONTINUE READING
