GRAPHing the Future

At Glasgow our research into parallel functional programming has been moving away from our novel architecture, GRIP towards the provision of a general parallel runtime environment. We call this GRAPH (Graph Reduction for an Assortment of Parallel Hardware).

This paper describes the design of a new memory and load management model for GRAPH, which is intended to match shared- and distributed-memory machines better and to provide a framework for our research into parallel functional databases and granularity control. This model is currently under implementation. No performance results can therefore be provided at the present time.
