PDAC: A data parallel algorithm for the performance analysis of closed queueing networks

F.B Hanson, Jing-Dong Mei, Charles Tier, Huihuang Xu
1993 Parallel Computing  
The computational cost of the PDAC algorithm is shown to be of polynomial order with a lower degree than the cost of the serial implementation of the DAC algorithm.  ...  The PDAC algorithm uses data parallel computation of the summation indices needed to compute the joint queue length probabilities.  ...  Then each chain contains a single job and number of chains in the network equals the number of jobs. The recursion of the RECAL algorithm is based on adding one chain at a time.  ...
