Abstract
Dynamic granularity estimation is a new technique for
automatically identifying expressions in functional lan­
guages for parallel evaluation. Expressions with lit­
tle computation relative to thread­creation costs should
evaluate sequentially for maximum performance. Static
identification of such threads is however difficult. There­
fore, dynamic granularity estimation has compile­time
and run­time components: Abstract interpretation stat­
