Token Relabeling in a Tagged Token Data-Flow Architecture
September 1989 (vol. 38 no. 9)
pp. 1225-1239
A direct structure access approach called token relabeling scheme is presented in which all array operations can be performed without the use of any intermediary structure memory. The graph constructs for both approaches are described. Four numerical algorithms including fast Fourier transform, bitonic sort, LU decomposition, and matrix multiplication are implemented in both approaches. Token r
