Abstract

This paper is part of a continued investigation of the relative power of different variants of the CRCW PRAM with infinite global memory. The models that we consider are the standard Priority and Common PRAMs, together with the less well-known Collision+ and Tolerant PRAMs. We describe several new results for the simulation of an n-processor Priority PRAM on weaker machines:(1)on an n-processor Tolerant PRAM: Slowdown O(√logn) (2) on an n-processor Collision+ PRAM: Slowdown O(log log n log(3)n);(3)on a Common PRAM with kn processors (k≤log n/2): Slowdown O(log n/(k log(log n/k)));(4)on a Tolerant PRAM with kn processors (2≤k≤log n): Slowdown O(log n/log k);(5)on a randomized n-processor Collision+ PRAM: Expected slowdown O(log log n).
