Foster's Design Methodology

Partition

  • Divide the problem into tasks.
  • Intention is to identify and expose opportunities for parallel execution.

Communication

  • Sharing data between computations.
  • Determine amount and pattern of communication.

Aglomeration

  •  Combine or group tasks to improve performance.

Mapping

  • Assign agglomerated tasks to threads/physical processors.
