  abstract= "A major obstacle to the use of parallel computers in
     ordinary applications, where their price/performance ratio
     should make them attractive, is the sheer difficulty of
     parallel programming. One approach which can ease the
     difficulties is data parallel programming, because of the
     simplicity of a single-threaded flow of control. Data
     parallelism also expresses parallelism with enough
     regularity to be readily implemented across a range of
     machine types. In this paper, we describe a data parallel
     model based on a set of second order functions from the
     Bird-Meertens theory of lists, demonstrate the
     implementation of these functions as a set of
     message-passing routines, and evaluate their performance on
     transputer networks configured as hy-percubes."
