Abstract [en]

One data-independent and one data-dependent algorithm for the computation of image histograms on parallel computers are presented, analysed and implemented on the Connection Machine system CM-2. The data-dependent algorithm has a lower requirement on communication bandwidth by only transferring bins with a non-zero count. Both algorithms perform all-to-all reduction, which is implemented through a sequence of exchanges as defined by a butterfly network. The two algorithms are compared based on predicted and actual performance on the Connection Machine CM-2. With few pixels per processor the data-dependent algorithm requires in the order of √B data transfers for B bins compared to B data transfers for the data-independent algorithm. As the number of pixels per processor grows the advantage of the data-dependent algorithm decreases. The advantage of the data-dependent algorithm increases with the number of bins of the histogram.
