  1. Bhatt, D. and Smith, D.R., Communications in a hierarchical multicomputer, COMPCON 79 Proceedings. Using Microprocessors, Extending Our Reach (1979), pp. 374 - 9 .

    Describes the design of the hardware and the basic functions of the operating system for a tree organized multicomputer now being constructed in the Computer Science department at Stony Brook. The processors have separate local memories and are interconnected by communication links specialized for the transfers of short control type messages and large blocks of data. Also discussed is the influence of previous simulation studies and the operating system considerations on the design of the hardware and interprocessor communication protocols
