Abstract
The increasing complexity of modern and future multi-core/multi- threaded processors rises the question of how to best utilize pro- cessor resources. On one side, Amdahl’s Law limits the max- imum theoretical speedup of parallel applications while, on the other side, the increasing complexity of runtime programming lan- guage may introduce implicit serialization points. Several studies demonstrated that it is often more convenient to use some of the hardware threads to assist execution than ru...
