    • ROPE: A New Twist in Computer Architectures 

      Karplus, Kevin; Nicolau, Alexandru (Cornell University, 1987-11)
      Supercomputer architectures are not as fast as logic technology allows because memories are slow than the CPU, conditional jumps limit the usefulness of pipelining and prefetching mechanisms, and functional-unit parallelism ...
    • Static Scheduling for Dynamic Dataflow Machines 

      Beck, Micah; Pingali, Keshav; Nicolau, Alexandru (Cornell University, 1989-01)
      Dataflow machines can "unravel" loops automatically so that many iterations of a loop can execute in parallel. Unbounded loop unraveling can strain the resources available on the machine and, in extreme cases, deadlock ...
