The Partitioning Stage
Expose opportunities for parallel execution; determine a fine-grained
decomposition of the problem.
Focus of partitioning may be on
Complementary approaches; they may be applied to different parts of a
problem and/or yield alternative algorithms for the same problem.
- Data domain decomposition
Partition data and then work out how to associate computation with data.
- Computation functional decomposition
Partition computation into tasks and then associate data to tasks.
