HPX is an experimental implementation of the ParalleX parallel execution model. HPX provides elaborate C++ constructs to allow programmers to express parallalism. This talk discusses one of those constructs, futures, to apply semi-automatic parallalization to a certain class of algorithms and the upcoming challenges to solve.
Thomas Heller is a Masters student from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. He joined the ParalleX Group in order to conduct research for his master thesis.
