  abstract= "In order to attain high efficiency and maximum throughput
     from MIMD architectures, it is necessary to have a balanced
     load with all processors being utilised. If the optimum
     program configuration is data-dependent, the process
     distribution will have to be performed at run time, i.e.
     dynamically. A message-passing harness has been developed
     with a process migration capability for dynamic
     loca-balancing on transputer-based machines. This paper
     describes the process migration harness and the way in which
     it is integrated with the user's application, gives a brief
     survey of the types of dynamic load balancing algorithm
     currently under investigation and concludes with some
     preliminary performance results."
