<p><it>Abstract</it>—Barrier synchronization is a commonly used primitive in parallel processing. In this paper, we present different algorithms for barrier synchronization on the widely prevalent multiaccess bus network, and derive analytical performance metrics for each of the proposed schemes, which are then compared against simulation results.</p>
