Abstract: In this dissertation, a model is presented for representing parallel computations which can be used to analyze their performance for various configurations. The model is an extended Petri Net with facilities to model control and data flow mechanisms, as well as synchronization and communication primitives. The methodology consists of viewing the model as consisting of three distinct submodels (the computation, architecture and mapping submodels) which have standard interfaces between them.
