Parallel Computing

This page contains information on parallel computing in general, and more specifically on parallel systems that are available on the web. This mainly covers compilation and runtime systems for parallel computation, focusing on declarative languages. In a broader sense it also covers distributed computation on either local- or wide-area networks.
