Abstract:

This lecture reviews some issues in the translation of an HPF program to a SPMD program. The need for a run-time array descriptor is discussed. An abstract model of a suitable Distributed Array Descriptor is developed. Illustrative translations of HPF fragments to Fortran and C++ are presented.
