ABSTRACT

This paper considers a solution to the multiprocessor scheduling problem for the case where the ordering relation between tasks can be represented as a tree. Assume that we have n identical processors, and a number of tasks to perform. Each task T<inf>i</inf>requires an amount of time ?<inf>i</inf>to complete, 0 < ?<inf>i</inf>= k, so that k is an upper bound on task time. Tasks are indivisible, s
