Empirical Studies in Parallel Sorting

dc.contributor.authorGolub, Evanen_US
dc.description.abstractI examine different parallel algorithms for sorting in rounds. Most of these algorithms use a graph to indicate the comparisons to be made. The primary difference between the algorithms is how these graphs are chosen. One uses graphs that are shown to exist using non-constructive techniques, several yield constructions of the required graphs, and one uses a randomized algorithm. The constructive algorithms would traditionally be preferred even though the processor requirements are higher. It is shown that the non- constructive algorithms can actually be used by generating the needed graphs using random number generators skewed appropriately.en_US
