Asynchronous PRAMs are (almost) as good as synchronous PRAMs
St. Louis, MO, 1990, Pages 590-599vol.2.
A PRAM (parallel random-access-machine) model that allows processors to have arbitrary asynchronous behavior is introduced. The main result shows that any n-processor CRCW (concurrent-read, concurrent-write) PRAM program can be simulated on an asynchronous CRCW PRAM using O(n) expected work per parallel step and up to n/log n log*n asynch...More
