This paper examines the use of binary trees in the design of efficient parallel algorithms. Using binary trees, we develop efficient algorithms for several scheduling problems. The shared memory model for parallel computation is used. Our success in using binary trees for parallel computations, indicates that the binary tree is an important and useful design tool for parallel algorithms.
