This section tries to explain the usage of the BAP system a bit more systematically. However the principles explained here are quite general and should be applicable to other parallel systems, too.
There is a long story of discussion of the attorneys of MIMD (Multiple Instructions Multiple Data) and SIMD (Single Instructions Multiple Data) hardware configurations. We like to participate in this discussion only in that way, that we will show that fast systems based on MIMD do exist. The fact that you chose the Transputer as your hardware platform shows that you are agree.
We distinguish between different kinds of Software parallelizations:
