Induction variables are of particular interest in optimizing compilers [ASU86]; a subclass of them that form arithmetic progressions has a vital role in parallelizing compilers [AK87, KKLW80, Wol78]. Induction variables are usually introduced to improve program performance on sequential computers. To illustrate this, we consider the loop of Figure 4.1.
