Evaluation strategies for irregular parallel programming

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This paper addresses the use of evaluation strategies for irregular parallel problems. Evaluation strategies are structured mechanisms for controlling the evaluation of parallel functional programs. They were developed for Glasgow Parallel Haskell (GPH), a modest extension of the standard Haskell language. The approach is illustrated by a problem taken from particle physics that demonstrates a highly irregular workload, and which shows acceptable simulated speedups.
