%X 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.
