A0 Q2(a)


In each step of total exchange, each pair of processors send and receive with its pair, so there are two sending and two receiving in each step between the pair. Should this be counted as two communications?


I tend to count this as one communication (one transfer).
But if you count it as two, and just explain, that’s ok.
