Why Parallel Functional Programming Matters: Panel Statement

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


Parallel programming is returning to importance. Functional programming ideas offer a way to break through the barriers that restrict parallel programmers, dramatically simplifying how parallelism can be exploited. This paper explores some ideas of abstraction from functional programming, showing how functional programming offers opportunities to deal with real problems of parallelism.
