Models and languages for parallel computation
David B. Skillicorn, Domenico Talia
Pages: 123-169
DOI: 10.1145/280277.280278
We survey parallel programming models and languages using six criteria to assess their suitability for realistic portable parallel programming. We argue that an ideal model should by easy to program, should have a software development...
