Today’s multicore processors support many threads of execution and can provide substantial performance when running multithreaded applications. Unfortunately, multithreaded programming is difficult, and as a result, a lot of today’s software is still...

A reduction is the process of combining elements of a vector (or array) to yield a single aggregate element. It is commonly used in scientific computations. For instance the inner product of two ndimensional vectors x, y is given by: This computation requires...

continue from the second parallel reduction blog . To get better scalability (increased program performance as the number of threads increases), it is critical to remove the lock in the upc_forall loop. This can be done by accumulating the partial sum...

continue from the previous parallel reduction blog The result is obvious wrong, but what is the problem? The keen reader might point out that the program as written contains a race condition. Multiple threads can write into shared variable "sum" concurrently,...
