Parallelization of Recurrent Loops Due to the Preliminary Computation of Superpositions

O.B. Steinberg
As a rule, sections of code that take a lot of time to compute are loops. Therefore, it is precisely on them that special efforts are directed when accelerating programs, in particular, through parallelization.
Full text
The article describes the parallelization algorithm for loops calculating the elements of a recursively given sequence. The recurrent loops considered in the article cannot be directly parallelized. With the help of auxiliary transformations, they can sometimes be reduced to loops that allow parallel execution. Earlier, the author of the article published another algorithm for parallelizing loops that calculate the elements of a recursively given sequence.
