Applications of the pack & unpack technique in vector computation
This article describes the pack & unpack performance of the vector using YH-1 supercomputer as its platform, with its emphasis on the pack & unpack technique's unique application to vector computation, in the light of vector computer's characteristics and some practical cases. The practical numerical experiment proves that the pack & unpack techniques is a key method to the depth parallel development and vectorization research of large scale scientific computation project, and which is a highly effective method to vectorizing application programs.
