    Factors driving the growth of parallel computing and those inhibiting its growth are identified. The impact of advances in communication, VLSI technology, and embedded systems on parallel architecture are discussed. The two categories of parallel programs-transformational and reactive-are examined. The use of templates and libraries is considered. Reasoning about parallel processes in the context ...

    A description is given of a process-management model, called cosmos, which combines the best of existing models by incorporating three perspectives: activity, communication, and infrastructure. Cosmos is designed to manage a large software system from beginning to end. Current problems in system development are reviewed, and the principles on which cosmos is based are outlined. The reasons for usi... View full abstract»

    The problems that algorithm designers encounter when existing programming environments and languages are used to solve real-world image-processing tasks are discussed. A method is proposed for abstracting, storing, and sharing image-processing knowledge that involves decomposing complex tasks into primitives (atoms) and then integrating them into new functional tools (molecules). The discussion co... View full abstract»

    Two Unix environments developed for programming parallel computers to handle image-processing and vision applications are described. Visx is a portable environment for the development of vision applications that has been used for many years on serial computers in research. Visx was adapted to run on a multiprocessor with modest parallelism by using functional decomposition and standard operating-s... View full abstract»
