Data Organization in Parallel Computers by Harry A.G. Wijshoff

By Harry A.G. Wijshoff

The association of information is obviously of significant value within the layout of excessive functionality algorithms and architectures. even supposing there are a number of landmark papers in this topic, no entire therapy has seemed. This monograph is meant to fill that hole. We introduce a version of computation for parallel desktop architec­ tures, during which we can show the intrinsic complexity of knowledge or­ ganization for particular architectures. We practice this version of computation to numerous latest parallel desktop architectures, e.g., the CDC 205 and CRAY vector-computers, and the MPP binary array processor. The learn of knowledge association in parallel computations was once brought as early as 1970. in the course of the improvement of the ILLIAC IV procedure there has been a necessity for a conception of attainable information preparations in interleaved mem­ ory structures. The ensuing conception dealt essentially with garage schemes often known as skewing schemes for 2-dimensional matrices, i.e., mappings from a- dimensional array to a couple of reminiscence banks. through the version of computation we can observe the idea of skewing schemes to var­ ious varieties of parallel laptop architectures. This ends up in a few outcomes for either the layout of parallel desktop architectures and for functions of parallel processing.

5. 4 it follows that if there exists a skewing scheme s: Z2 -+ {O, 1, ... ,N - 1} that is valid for Bl and B2 , then s has the property that there exist integers aj (j E Z), ao = 0, and integers /3j (j E Z), /30 = 0, such that for all m E {O, 1, ... 2. 8; + iqbjq2)1 i,j E Z}. Note that the other three possibilities lead to contradiction. 80 = 0). = s( Z, Y + k 2b) iff b = ilP2 for some hE Z. 14. 2 there exists a skewing scheme that is valid for BI and B 2. Let S : Z2 --t {O, 1, ... , N - I} be the skewing scheme that is implied by the tessellation T.

M -1} that is valid for C, for all N ~ 0, if and only if there ezists a skewing scheme s: Zd - t {O, 1, ... ,M -1} that is valid for C. Actually Shapiro has proved this result only for 2-dimensional arrays, but his proof can be generalized to the d-dimensional case in an obvious way. So from now on, whenever we speak about skewing schemes for d-dimensional arrays, we mean skewing schemes from Zd to {O, 1, ... ,M -1}, unless stated otherwise. A second result of Shapiro [Sha78b] determines the validity of skewing schemes for a collection of templates of equal size.

These subsets will be called templates. Because in most (parallel) algorithms these templates have a uniform "shape", we define with every template P the base-set Bp ~ D of P, such that for all a E Bp a $ P is a subset of D which has to be retrieved in parallel. $ is an operation defined on the locations of D. 1 (i) A template P on D is any (finite) subset olD. 4. DATA ORGANIZATION 29 (ii) The base-set B p 01 a template P is any subset 01 D. (iii) An instance 01 P is a set a e P, with a E Bp. One should not confuse the templates which are determined by the algorithm with the access patterns which are determined by the parallel computer architecture.
