  abstract= "A model program structure is presented for parallel
     applications with local interactions between the data
     elements, such as neural networks simulations and the
     solution of partial differential equations. The performance
     of this model program is analyzed both theoretically by
     means of classical performance models, and experimentally
     using a parallel neural network simulator program. The
     program runs on a Meiko transputer array, and uses the Meiko
     CSTools libraries for its communications. The comparison of
     both analyses allows to predict applications performance on
     new and other machines, and indicate what parts of an
     application are worth optimizing. Moreover, it is shown that
     classical theoretical models not always capture the behavior
     of a real machine."
