Parallelism & Intelligence

The Ideal Machine

  The Ideal Parallelisator.
(Parallelisation is running a (sequential) program on multiple processors to get the job done in less time, what we call speedup.)

For succes however, parallelisation should be ?sold in a box?. A user should not worry about any aspect, parallelisation must work automatically for every hardware and every problem.

+ ideal scalable (zie Wouter: references toevoegen) match problem - hardware

Human can...

NOW: combinatorial explosion...

what do we have

The Ideal Simulator
system under study

what do we have: good DES theories, parallel algorithms
