In this chapter, scheduling is defined as the activity that consists in mapping a task graph onto a target platform. The task graph represents the application, nodes denote computational tasks, and edges model precedence constraints between tasks. For each task, an assignment (choose the processor that will execute the task) and a schedule (decide when to start the execution) are determined. The goal is to obtain an efficient execution of the application, which translates into optimizing some objective function.
