Abstract or Summary
  • The specific objectives of this project are to compare the Sequent and the transputer to determine the speed of both and find out which is easiest for programming in parallel. The results are graphs showing relative and real time speedup versus number of processors and conclusions based on those graphs. Parallel versions of the VARDIG algorithm were developed and their performance compared on two parallel processors: one for the transputer, written in occam, and one for the Sequent, written in Pascal. Although the transputer is faster, the Sequent showed a more nearly linear speedup running this algorithm. Because the occam language was designed for parallel programming, it may lead to a better understanding of parallel algorithms.
