Pipelined decomposable BSP computers
RAIRO - Theoretical Informatics and Applications - Informatique Théorique et Applications, Volume 36 (2002) no. 1, pp. 43-65.

The class of weak parallel machines is interesting, because it contains some realistic parallel machine models, especially suitable for pipelined computations. We prove that a modification of the bulk synchronous parallel (BSP) machine model, called decomposable BSP (dBSP), belongs to the class of weak parallel machines if restricted properly. We will also correct some earlier results about pipelined parallel Turing machines.
