This paper describes a system software design for multiple instruction stream control in a massively parallel associative computing environment. The purpose of providing multiple instruction stream control is to increase throughput and reduce the amount of parallel slackness inherent in single instruction stream parallel programming constructs. The multiple associative computing (MASC) model is used to describe this technique and a brief introduction to the MASC model of parallel computation is presented. A simple parallel computing example is used to illustrate the techniques for multiple instruction stream control in a massively parallel runtime environment.
