The problem of scheduling n tasks in a multiprocessor system with m processors to minimize the makespan is studied. Tasks are malleable, which means that a task can be executed by several processors at a time, its processing speed depends on the number of allocated processors, and a set of processors allocated to the same task can change over time. The processing speed of a task is a strictly increasing...
