Abstract

In this paper, we prove that many parallel communication topologies and several parallel algorithms have fractal properties, which leads to the idea that there is a strong connection between the classical parallel computing and a plausible computing on a fractal medium. Furthermore, we show that some parallel algorithms are suitable for incursive and hyperincursive computation, which links parallel computing to quantum computing and a possible fractal computing.
