The Efficiency of Linda for General Purpose Scientific Programming

Timothy G. Mattson
1994 Scientific Programming  
The goal of this article is to demonstrate that Linda programs are efficient making Linda an effective general purpose tool for programming MIMD parallel computers.  ...  It is easy to use, and lets the programmer code in a very expressive, uncoupled programming style. These benefits, however, are of little value unless Linda programs execute efficiently.  ...  The MD program was parallelized [23] using Linda. The parallelization focused exclusively on the nonbonded term that consists of a double sum over the atoms in a molecule.  ...

The ProSet-Linda approach to prototyping parallel systems

Wilhelm Hasselbring
1998 Journal of Systems and Software  
This paper presents the ProSet-Linda approach which has been designed for prototyping parallel systems.  ...  Parallel programming is conceptually harder to undertake and to understand than sequential programming, because a programmer often has to manage the coexistence and coordination of multiple parallel activities  ...  It is often used to test the expressivity of new parallel languages. The ProSet-Linda solution in Figure 1 is derived from the C-Linda version in (Carriero and Gelernter, 1990) .  ...

The S/Net's Linda kernel

Nicholas Carriero, David Gelernter
1986 ACM Transactions on Computer Systems  
Linda is a parallel programming language that differs from other parallel languages in its simplicity and in its support for distributed data structures.  ...  S/Net-Linda matrix-multiplication program designed to exercise them.  ...  Parallel languages are tools for parallel programming, and parallel programming in turn is useful in two ways.  ...

Efficiency Evaluation of PVM 2.X, PVM 3.X, P4, Express and Linda on a Workstation Cluster Using the NAS Parallel Benchmarks [chapter]

Gabriele Kotsis, Florian Sukup
1996 Tools and Environments for Parallel and Distributed Systems  
When developing programs for a n e t work of workstations, a tedious and time consuming task consists of handling the communication and synchronization in a correct and e cient w ay.  ...  Correct means in this context, that it is guaranteed, that each p r ocess running on a particular machine will receive the appropriate data and that the program will not deadlock.  ...  Linda should enable users to create parallel programs which perform well in a wide range of computing environments. The concept of Linda is a little bit di erent than the concepts of the other tools.  ...
