HLPP2001: International Workshop on
High-level Parallel Programming and Applications

26-27 March 2001, Université d'Orléans, France

Château de la Source

Applications of BSP

Rob H. Bisseling
Mathematical Institute, Utrecht University

Today, parallel programming is easy and parallel computing is available for the masses. The bulk synchronous parallel (BSP) model allows a structured approach to designing parallel algorithms and the BSPlib communication library offers an easy entry into writing parallel programs.

In this talk, we examine the parallelisation of three applications:

Finally, we will give a survey of BSP applications by other groups.
