(University of Edinburgh. College of Science and Engineering. School of Informatics., 1996-12)
Programming parallel computers remains a difficult task. An ideal programming environment should enablethe user to concentrate on the problem solving activity at a convenient level of abstraction, while managing the intricate ...
Practical Structured Parallelism using BMF
(University of Edinburgh. College of Science and Engineering. School of Informatics., 1998-07)
This thesis concerns the use of the Bird- Meertens Formalism as a mechanism to control parallelism in an imperative programming language. One of the main reasons for the failure of parallelism to enter mainstream computing ...
