This paper considers the increasing impact of computer architecture on algorithm development. After describing the mathematical modeling of parallelpipeline vector processors, the models are used to develop complexity expressions for vectorized solution of certain well-known algorithms. These expressions in turn reveal the overhead cost of the vectorization of sequential algorithms. Software and functional characteristics of current vector processors are compared.
