Abstract:
The number of applications requiring high speed symbolic computation and the performance requirements of these projects are both rapidly increasing. However, the computer science community's ability to produce high performance uniprocessor hardware is being outstripped by these needs. Therefore, we propose a unique multiprocessing solution to the high speed, symbolic computation problem. Our approach is to develop a transparent runtime mechanism for executing standard, sequential Lisp code on a multiprocessor computer.
