%X This paper describes the performance of a multigrid method
implemented on a transputer\-based architecture. We show
that the combination of fast floating\-point hardware, local
memory and fast communication links between processors
provide an excellent environment for the parallel
implementation of multigrid algorithms. The gain in
efficiency obtained by increasing the number of processors
is shown to be nearly linear and comparisons are made with
published figures for a parallel multigrid Poisson solver on
an Intel iPSC 32\-node hypercube.
