SAL Home PARALLEL Programming Languages & Systems


The objectives of the Sisal Language Project are to develop high-performance functional compilers and runtime systems to simplify the process of writing scientific programs on parallel supercomputers and to help programmers develop functional scientific applications. Functional languages, such as Sisal, promote the construction of correct parallel programs by isolating the programmer from the complexities of parallel processing. Based on the principles of mathematics, Sisal exposes implicit parallelism through data independence and guarantees determinate results.
