Abstract

The development of a distributed system POOL based on a network which efficiently connects many processing elements is the subject of research supported by the DFG, SFB 124 “VLSI-Entwurfsmethoden und Parallelität” (Teilprojekt D3). This contribution attempts to give an overview of the work done so far within this project.
