Data-parallel computing: the language dimension
International Thomson Computer Press, 1996 - Computers - 223 pages
Increasingly, research in parallel computing is focused on how high-level language constructs can be implemented. Through the introduction of a new language (EVAL), the authors show how such languages can help to develop a better understanding of the nature of data parallelism and consequently produce more elegant and portable programs. 65 illus.
