We give new time and processor bounds for the parallel evaluation of linear recurrence systems. Such systems may be represented as x? =c? + Ax? where A is an n X n strictly lower triangular matrix and c is a constant column vector. We show that O og<inf>2</inf><sup>2</sup>n) time steps and n<sup>3</sup>/ 8 + 0O<sup>2</sup>) processors are sufficient. We also show that mth order linear recurrences,
