The HDC Compiler Project
The objective of the Higher-order
Divide-and-Conquer compiler project
was to investigate the automatic parallelization of divide-and-conquer
recursions. The programming language used is a subset
of the pure and higher-order functional programming language Haskell,
but with an eager semantics to enable parallelization.
Important combinators, especially various kinds of Divide-and-Conquer,
are expressed as predefined skeletons. The parallel target code is in
C+MPI. The compiler is itself completely implemented in Haskell.
The HDC project was part of the DFG-funded
project RecuR2 (Regular Concurrency in Recurrences 2) of the
Chair for Programming at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of the
University of Passau.
