### Abstract

We present a framework for unifying iteration reordering transformations such as loop interchange, loop distribution, skewing, tiling, index set splitting and statement reordering. The framework is based on the idea that a transformation can be represented as a schedule that maps the original iteration space to a new iteration space. The framework is designed to provide a uniform way to represent and reason about transformations. As part of the framework, we provide algorithms to assist in the building and use of schedules. In particular, we provide algorithms to test the legality of schedules, to align schedules and to generate optimized code for schedules. This work is supported by an NSF PYI grant CCR-9157384 and by a Packard Fellowship. 1 Introduction Optimizing compilers reorder iterations of statements to improve instruction scheduling, register use, and cache utilization, and to expose parallelism. Many different reordering transformations have been developed and studied, su...
