A software simulation tool for the parallel branch and bound method implementation

А.Л. Фомин


This paper describes a software simulation tool for the parallel branch and bound method implementation. Such a tool allows to analyse performance of the implementation in various modes. According to the approach chosen, parallel execution of the application processes is modelled by sequential execution of the pseudoparallel simulator processes. To synchronize them, the timestamps of events are involved.
