An Improved Vector-Reduction Method
February 1991 (vol. 40 no. 2)
pp. 214-217

A pipelined vector-reduction method that is based on L.M. Ni and K. Hwang's (1985) symmetric and asymmetric reduction methods is discussed. It is shown that the proposed method is the fastest among known pipelined vector-reduction methods.
