Abstract:

This final technical report summarizes research accomplished by Bagrodia and Chandy Associates. This 12-month research endeavor, entitled Concept of Operations for a Virtual Machine for C31 Applications, examined issues in using a concurrent virtual machine for the design of C31 applications, where a concurrent virtual machine is an abstraction of a parallel machine. These issues were evaluated and defined for the purposes of handling concurrency in the design of parallel programs and to facilitate porting a parallel program to multiple architectures. This report provides a description of requirements analysis, state-of-the-art review, technology trends, concurrent virtual machine, cost benefit analysis and case study undertaken. One of the recommendations proposed demonstrates the applicability of the proposed concurrent virtual machine for the design of a terrain masking program.
