Description

From University Video Communications' catalog:

"The challenge for optimizing compilers of parallel computers is to deliver the performance potentials while providing portability and easy enablement of applications. This lecture focuses on a subset of this challenge: the parallelizing of "dusty-deck" FORTRAN programs for shared-memory, parallel computers. Technologies for program analysis, the formation of parallelism, and program transformations are described along with a brief overview of the relationship of parallelization to other components of parallel software systems, in particular, to traditional optimization, operating systems, and application-enablement environments. The lecture concludes with a list of open problems."
