Related Systems

There are several language projects related to our HPspmd programming model. Examples are Co-Array Fortran, ZPL, JavaParty, Timber, and Titanium. Co-Array Fortran is an extended Fortran dialect for SPMD programming. ZPL is a new array language for scientific and engineering computations. JavaParty is a cluster-based parallel programming in Java. Timber is a parallelizing static compiler for a superset of Java. Titanium is a language and system for high-performance parallel computing, and its base language is Java. In this chapter we will discuss these related languages and compare them with our HPspmd model.
