    Abstract:
    The primary advantages of `multi-microprocessor architectures' are their potential for improvements in cost, reliability, and possibly speed over conventional large computers. However, the realization of these advantages requires improvements in the techniques necessary to translate problems into parallel algorithms for multi-microprocessors, and in the architectures of the multi-microprocessors themselves. This paper describes an architecture currently being investigated at SUNY-Stony Brook. It discusses various strategies of design, the structure of the proposed system, and some classes of problems for which the architecture is suited
