Instruction-Level Parallelism presents a collection of papers that attempts to capture the most significant work that took place during the 1980s in the area of instruction-level (ILP) parallel processing. The papers in this book discuss both compiler techniques and actual implementation experience on very long instruction word (VLIW) and superscalar architectures.
