Partitioning Dividing the problem into parts. Basis for all parallel programming, in one form or another. Domain decomposition - partitioning applied to the program data. Dividing the data and operating upon the divided data concurrently. Functional decomposition - partitioning applied to the functions of a program. Dividing the program into independent functions and executing the functions concurrently. Domain decomposition forms the foundation of most parallel algorithms

Number Summation Revisited Our previous implementation used broadcast() and reduce() to send the data and combine the result The following pseudocode uses individual send()s and receive()s: 1.Master: s = n/p; for (i=0,x=0;I

Divide-and-Conquer Dividing a problem into subproblems that are of the same form as the larger problem. Further divisions into still smaller sub-problems are usually done by recursion. int add(int *s){ if (number(s) == 2) return (s[0] + s[2]); else { divide(s, s1, s2); part_sum1 = add(s1); part_sum2 = add(s2); return (part_sum1 + part_sum2); }

Tree construction When each division creates two parts, a recursive divide-and-conquer formulation forms a binary tree.

4.8 Slides for Parallel Programming Techniques & Applications Using Networked Workstations & Parallel Computers 2nd ed., by B. Wilkinson & M Pearson Education Inc. All rights reserved. Parallel Implementation In a sequential implementation, only one node of the tree can be visited at a time. A parallel solution offers the prospect of traversing several parts of the tree simultaneously. Could assign one processor to each node in the tree. Requires 2 m+1 -1 processors to divide the tasks into 2 m parts A more efficient solution is to reuse processors at each level of the tree At each stage, each processor keeps half of the list and passes on the other half

Adding a List of Numbers Suppose we statically create eight processes to add a list of numbers: Process P0: divide(s1, s1, s2); send(s2, P4); divide(s1, s1, s2); send(s2, P2); part_sum = *s1; recv(&part_sum1, P1); part_sum = part_sum + part_sum1; recv(&part_sum1, P2); part_sum = part_sum + part_sum1; recv(&part_sum1, P4); part_sum = part_sum + part_sum1;

Analysis (cont’d) Computation At the end of the divide phase, the n/p numbers are added together. Then one addition occurs at each stage during the combining phase, leading to Time complexity of O(n) for constant p. For large n and variable p, we get O(n/p). Total parallel execution time becomes:

M-ary Divide and Conquer) Divide and conquer can also be applied where a task is divided into more than two parts at each stage Sample code for 4-are divide and conquer: int add(int *s){ if(number(s)<=4) return (n1+n2+n3+n4); else{ Divide(s, s1, s2,s2,34); p_sum1 = add(s1); p_sum2 = add(s2); p_sum3 = add(s3); p_sum4 = add(s4); return (p_sum1 + p_sum2+ p_sum3 + p_sum4); }

Example 1: Sorting Using Bucket Sort Most sequential sorting algorithms are based on comparing and exchanging pairs of numbers Bucket sort is not based on compare and exchange, but is naturally a partitioning method Works well only if the numbers to be sorted are uniformly distributed across a known interval If all the numbers in the interval 0 to a-1 –Divide numbers into m regions 0 to a/m-1, a/m to 2a/m-1,… –One “bucket” is assigned to hold numbers that fall a region

4.20 Slides for Parallel Programming Techniques & Applications Using Networked Workstations & Parallel Computers 2nd ed., by B. Wilkinson & M Pearson Education Inc. All rights reserved. Sequential Bucket Sort: Partitioning into Buckets Need to determine placement of each number into appropriate bucket Given a number r, compare it with the start of regions a/m, 2a/m, 3a/m, … –Can take m-1 comparisons to determine right bucket Better alternative: multiply r by m/a to determine its bucket –Requires one computational step, except that division can be expensive If m is a power of 2, bucket identification even faster –If m = 2 k, higher k bits of r determine r ’s bucket Assume that placing a number into a bucket requires one step –placing all the numbers requires n steps. If the numbers are uniformly distributed each bucket will contain n/m numbers

21
4.21 Slides for Parallel Programming Techniques & Applications Using Networked Workstations & Parallel Computers 2nd ed., by B. Wilkinson & M Pearson Education Inc. All rights reserved. Sequential Bucket Sort: Sorting the Buckets After placing the numbers, each bucket needs to be sorted n numbers can be sorted sequentially in O(n log n) time Best time for sequential compare and exchange sorting Thus, each bucket can be sorted in O(n/m log n/m) time, sequentially Assuming no concatenation overhead, the sequential time is

4.22 Slides for Parallel Programming Techniques & Applications Using Networked Workstations & Parallel Computers 2nd ed., by B. Wilkinson & M Pearson Education Inc. All rights reserved. Parallel Bucket Sort Can be parallelized by assigning one processor per bucket The computation time will now be (with m=p): This equation means that each processor examines each of the numbers – inefficient Can be improved by removing each examined number from the list at it is bucketed

4.24 Slides for Parallel Programming Techniques & Applications Using Networked Workstations & Parallel Computers 2nd ed., by B. Wilkinson & M Pearson Education Inc. All rights reserved. Further Parallelization Partition sequence into m regions, one region for each processor. Each processor maintains p “small” buckets and separates the numbers in its region into its own small buckets. Small buckets then emptied into p final buckets for sorting –Requires each processor to send one small bucket to each of the other processors (bucket i to processor i). The algorithms has four phases: –Partitioning numbers –Placement into p small buckets –Sending small buckets to large buckets –Sorting large buckets

4.26 Slides for Parallel Programming Techniques & Applications Using Networked Workstations & Parallel Computers 2nd ed., by B. Wilkinson & M Pearson Education Inc. All rights reserved. Analysis Phase 1 - Computation and Communication the p partitions, containing n/p numbers each, are sent to the processes. Using a broadcast (or scatter) routine tcomm1 = t startup + nt data Phase 2 – Computation To separate each partition of n/p numbers into p small buckets requires the time t comp2 = n/p

27
4.27 Slides for Parallel Programming Techniques & Applications Using Networked Workstations & Parallel Computers 2nd ed., by B. Wilkinson & M Pearson Education Inc. All rights reserved. Analysis Phase 3 – Communication Next, the small buckets are distributed (no computation). Each small bucket will have about n/p2 numbers. Each process must send the contents of p-1 small buckets to other processes Since each process of the p processes must make this communication, we have t comm3 = p(p-1)(t startup +(n/p2)t data The above assumes the communications do not overlap in time and individual send()s are used If the communication could overlap ( MPI_Alltoall() ), we have: t comm3 = (p-1)(t startup +(n/p2)t data

Example 2: Numerical integration In many areas of mathematics and science it is necessary to calculate the area bounded by y = f(x), the axis, and the lines x = a, and x = b. The area can be calculated using definite integrals Can be difficult or impossible sometimes Typically, approximations methods are used to calculate such area Trapezoidal rule Simpson rule Adaptive quadrature methods Area approximated by partitioning the interval [a, b] into n equal pieces and inscribing a rectangle above each sub- interval thus obtained
