Diderot is a domain-specific language for programming image analysis algorithms on
parallel hardware.
It supports a high-level programming model based on the mathematics of continuous
tensor fields that are reconstructed from discrete image-data sets (\eg{}, MRI data).
Diderot is also designed to be implemented on parallel hardware.

\section{Basic concepts}
The design of Diderot is based on three core concepts: image data, the continuous fields
that are reconstructed from them, and the strands that represent the computations over
the fields.
We give a high-level overview of these in this section.
