Abstract

This thesis investigates the problems of allocating the data and
code address spaces of a concurrent program onto the stores of a given
multiprocessor computer architecture, and the allocation of the
processes of the program to the processors of the architecture.
The minimum required of this resource allocation is to produce a
legal mapping of the resources onto the multiprocessor computer. It will
also attempt to give the most efficient mapping, and allow the user to
guide this activity. This thesis describes the methods developed to
implement this, which includes the specification of the structures of
both the program and the computer architecture in a machine
understandable form, and the design of algorithms to perform the
allocation.
With the resulting techniques the emphasis is upon small scale
multiprocessor computer architectures running dedicated concurrent
programs. The resource allocation scheme results in a fixed allocation
of the parts of a single program to a possibly nonstandard and
specially tailored multiprocessor architecture. This would find little
application with large regular mainframe multiprocessor computers
executing time shared operating system programs, where the allocation of
resources is highly dynamic and unknown at compile time.
