### Two approaches to architecture - independent parallel computation

Abstract:

Two approaches to architecture-independent parallel computation are investigated: a constructive functional notation for specifying implicitly parallel operations on multidimensional arrays, and an extension to imperative sequential programming languages for implementing bulk-synchronous parallel algorithms.

An algebra of multidimensional rectangular arrays is defined constructively, by means of an injective singleton operator which maps each value from a base type into a one-elemen...
