- von Neumann machine:
- Repeated sequence of assignments until fixed point.
*r*:=*f(r)*;*r*:=*g(r)*;*r*:=*h(r)*.

- Assume computation of
*f*is more efficient:- Apply
*f*twice as often. *r*:=*f(r)*;*r*:=*g(r)*;*r*:=*f(r)*;*r*:=*h(r)*.

- Apply
- Multiprocessor mapping:
- Partition statements among processors.
- Each processor executes one of
*f*,*g*,*h*.
