Computer architecture deals with the physical configuration, logical structure, formats, protocols, and operational sequences for processing data, controlling the configuration, and controlling the operations over a computer. It also encompasses word lengths, instruction codes, and the interrelationships among the main parts of a computer or group of computers. This two-volume set offers a comprehensive coverage of the field of computer organization and architecture.

Minicomputers made by DEC, Prime, and Data General led the way in defining a new kind of computing: time-sharing. By the 1970s it was clear that there existed two kinds of commercial or business computing: (1) centralized data processing mainframes, and.

Serial process vs. parallel process. Communication among parallel processes can be performed by writing to and reading from shared variables in the shared data segments as shown in Figure 4.15. 4.6.3 Synchronization Synchronization is needed to protect shared variables by ensuring that they are accessed by only one process at a given time (mutual exclusion). They can also be used to coordinate the execution of parallel processes and synchronize at certain points in execution. There are two.

Computational model for synchronous message passing systems. We will discuss complexity analysis of algorithms described in terms of both PRAM and message passing models. A number of algorithms for both models will be presented and evaluated. 6.1 THE PRAM MODEL AND ITS VARIATIONS The purpose of the theoretical models for parallel computation is to give frameworks by which we can describe and analyze algorithms. These ideal models are used to obtain performance bounds and complexity estimates.
