Parallel algorithm designers need computational models that take first order system costs into account, but that are also simple enough to use in practice. This thesis describes the LoPC model, which is inspired by the LogP model, but which accounts for contention in message passing algorithms on a multiprocessor or network of workstations communicating via active messages. While LoPC is based on mean value analysis, it parameterizes architectures and algorithms in exactly the same way as thedoi:10.1145/263764.263803 dblp:conf/ppopp/FrankAV97 fatcat:hldl7ochq5ajdgtxvuipixqawe
