Paper Abstract

Data flow sequencing and the directed graph program representation provide two important tools for the development of computer architectures which can exploit problem parallelism. Classical (control flow) architectures deal efficiently with other problems such as serial sequences and data storage which are not handled as well by a data flow architecture. A hybrid architecture which incorporates features of a data flow architecture along with features of a control flow architecture has the potential of becoming an effective parallel architecture for a wide class of problems.
