Abstract : During the second year of the award period, the Computer Science Department of the University of Rochester continued work in: 1) systems support algorithms, 2) the Butterfly programming environment, and 3) vision applications. This research produced several internal and external reports as well as much exportable code. The University of Rochester also employed DARPA Parallel Architecture Benchmark problems to test different algorithms using four different Butterfly programming environments. These tests produced several interesting results and demonstrated that the Butterfly architecture is a flexible general purpose architecture that can be effectively programmed by non-experts, using tools developed at BBN and Rochester. The University of Rochester is continuing to study the issures and concerns surrounding the effective implementation of parallel algorithms. Keywords: Parallel processors; Butterfly computers; Computer vision.
