Abstract [en]

Parallel programming has become ubiquitous and more than a preference, it is a necessity for utilizing hardware resources (multiple cores)  in order to speed-up computation. However, developing parallel programs is difficult and error-prone. In ordert o make development of parallel programs easier and less error-prone,new programming languages are being developed. This thesis compares Encore, a new programming language, against C++ with OpenMP for parallelizing program execution. The focus of this comparison is the respective run-times and parallel scalability, when running a pedestrian simulation program.
