An Introduction to Parallel Computation and Ρ-Completeness Theory Ray Greenlaw, Jim Hoover, and Larry Ruzzo 5 Introduction Goal of parallel computation: Develop extremely fast ((log n) O(1) ) time algorithms using a reasonable number of processors. Speedup equation: (best sequential time) (number of processors) Allow a polynomial number of processors. (parallel time).

An Introduction to Parallel Computation and Ρ-Completeness Theory Ray Greenlaw, Jim Hoover, and Larry Ruzzo 6 Introduction Roughly, A problem is feasible if it can be solved by a parallel algorithm with worst case time and processor complexity n O(1). A problem is feasible highly parallel if it can be solved by an algorithm with worst case time complexity (log n) O(1) and processor complexity n O(1). A problem is inherently sequential if it is feasible but has no feasible highly parallel algorithm for its solution.
