Technical Report(abstract)

Selecting the optimal implementation of a high level algorithm is difficult but can have a dramatic effect on performance, especially when developing parallel applications. In this paper, we investigate a methodology for selecting among candidate sorting methods and show experimental results on several parallel architectures.
