Abstract : New computer architectures are feasible because of the advances in VLSI design and fabrication technologies. Among them, highly parallel structures coordinate hundreds of thousands of processing elements that function cooperatively. These structures are especially useful in solving computationally intensive problems. This thesis applies the highly parallel approach to improve the efficiency in processing relational database queries. High-performance algorithms for basic relational operations are explored. Efficient composition of these algorithms to process whole queries is also investigated.
