Sure. One of the things to look for, definitely, are nested loops.  You can
increase "big oh" efficienty by factors of ten when you parallelize these
types of loops.  Not sure about any actual benchmarks on the approach,

Subject: Parallelization check list

We are starting to put together a check-list of things to consider when
taking a serial code and determining its parallelizability, either for a
distributed memory and/or SMP environment.  Has anyone already gone through
a similar exercise and if so could you share the results?  Any help would be
greatly appreciated.
