Abstract

Computer hardware is at the beginning of the multi-core revolution. While hardware at the commodity level is capable of running concurrent software, most software does not take advantage of this fact because parallel software development is difficult. This project addressed potential remedies to these difficulties by investigating graphical programming and fine-grain parallelism. A prototype system taking advantage of both of these concepts was implemented and evaluated in terms of real-world applications.
