%X 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.
