Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Progress in shared-memory multiprocessing research over the last several decades has led to its industrial recognition as a key technology for a variety of performance-demanding application domains. In this chapter, we summarize the current state of this technology including system architectures, programming interfaces, and compiler and tool technology offered to the application writer. We the identify important issues for future research in relation to technology and application trends. We particularly focus on research directions in machine architectures, programming interfaces, and parallelization methodologies.
