Integrated Performance Tuning Using Semantic Information Collected by Instrumenting the Language Runtime

This is the first paper that mentions the model, in the context of using it as a tool to gain insight while performance tuning applications. It takes a long time to load in the browser because the figures use real data collected during a run, and the pdf is 10 MB, so patience is needed ; )

Dissertation: A Study of Frameworks for Collectively Meeting the Productivity, Portability, and Adoptability Goals for Parallel Software

This PhD Dissertation was published in 2011. It explains the problem being solved by parallelism research, and introduces new computation models as a basis for understanding parallel computation. Chapters 6 and 7 are related to the model, and chapter 8 is the first publication of the basic elements of the model.
