Abstract:

Problems encountered in parallel processing are first discussed in this report. A set of steps for designing a more cost-effective parallel processor is suggested. An associative processor organization with application to weather computations is used as a particular example for system analysis, evaluation, and design. Weather computations dealing directly with the solutions of partial differential equations with more than one or two independent variables have played an important role in the history of digital computations. The area of global simulation is chosen from various categories of weather computations to be studied, and specifically, a two-level atmospheric general circulation model developed by Mintz and Arakawa is used as the application problem to be implemented on the associative processor.
