  abstract= "Recent developments in the area of high performance
     computing are pointing the way to a standard architecture
     for parallel computers. This architecture contains a number
     of medium-cost processing elements which communicate with
     each other through a high-bandwidth, low-latency
     interconnect. The design of the interconnect eliminates the
     concerns of \"locality\" which are current in the
     programming of present-day machines. This \"flat\"
     topology and common architectural model lead to increased
     opportunities for establishing portable software for high
     performance computing. The Esprit GP-MIMD project has
     exploited these opportunities by developing the
     architectural model and denning a programming interface for
     software which runs efficiently on machines with a range of
     processing power."
