%X Distributing process\-oriented programs across a cluster of
machines requires careful attention to the effects of
network latency. The MPI standard, widely used for cluster
computation, defines a number of collective operations:
efficient, reusable algorithms for performing operations
among a group of machines in the cluster. In this paper, we
describe our techniques for implementing MPI communication
patterns in process\-oriented languages, and how we have
used them to implement collective operations in PyCSP
and occam\-π on top of an asynchronous messaging
framework. We show how to make use of collective operations
in distributed processoriented applications. We also show
how the process\-oriented model can be used to increase
concurrency in existing collective operation algorithms.
