Abstract : A second method for partial order control using the results of the previously reported parallelism detection algorithm is given. A comparison in cost of representation and use is made among the two order control methods and sequential control. Parallelism among executions of loop bodies and among nested and interlocked loops is examined. A system design for parallelism exploitation is described. This system uses a block oriented random access memory (BORAM) for secondary storage to minimize access time. Some characteristics of dynamic sequencing procedures for selection among ready tasks are given. (Author)
