Problem specific environments for parallel computing

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We consider general purpose and problem specific tools for parallel problem solving. A comparison is made between the two approaches, in terms of effort and usefulness, for two example problems. The advantages of special purpose, problem specific environments are described, and the effort required to construct such environments is seen to be reasonable.
