Abstract:
The analysis of parallelism in an applicative program is much easier than in a program written in a conventional statement-oriented style. This makes it possible for an optimizing compiler to prepare such a program for extremely efficient execution on a suitable enormously parallel computer. This thesis explores the transformations that must be made to achieve very high performance for numerical programs when executed on a computer that uses data flow principles in its operation.
