The Cowichan Problems in Orca

Henri E. Bal and Gregory V. Wilson.

The Cowichan Problems are a suite for assessing the usability of parallel programming systems. The suite was developed by Greg Wilson. Several students of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of the Vrije Universiteit have implemented these applications in the Orca parallel language.
