The main performance issue with these applications concerns functions of discrete-time. Novel techniques exploit fine-grain parallelism in the calculation of these functions to allow users to express them at a high-level in C++. New scheduling strategies are used to exploit symmetric multiprocessors with emphasis on special hard real-time constraints.}, isbn = {978-3-540-66818-3}, url = {http://www.springerlink.com/content/81314334t1w10x48/}, author = {Chaudhary, Amar and Freed, Adrian and Wessel, David} }
