Scheduling multiprocessor tasks on two parallel processors
RAIRO - Operations Research - Recherche Opérationnelle, Volume 36 (2002) no. 1, pp. 37-51.

In this work scheduling multiprocessor tasks on two parallel identical processors is considered. Multiprocessor tasks can be executed by more than one processor at the same moment of time. We analyze scheduling unit execution time and preemptable tasks to minimize schedule length and maximum lateness. Cases with ready times, due-dates and precedence constraints are discussed.
