What's that word you use that means "to transform serial code into a parallel equivalent"? Obviously this will be a "new" word since I'm pretty sure the Romans and other Latin speakers had no concept of parallel computation and, therefore, we don't have some root word from that language on which ...

I can't believe that I forgot to mention this in my blog post about the training sessions we held in Taiwan the first week in March 2011. I need to remember to consult my notes when I'm writing up these reports. Professor Pangfeng Liu from the Department of Computer Science and Information Engine...
