Multicomputing: A Visualization Programming Environment for Multicomputers
July/August 1990 (vol. 10 no. 4)
pp. 50-58

The programming and run-time environment used for the authors' multicomputer visualization software are described. The particular approach to using multicomputers for scientific visualization provides a uniform interface to system and communications facilities and promotes modularity and code reuse. No breakthrough technology is involved; rather, a collection of methods that have been developed by others has been optimized for visual computing applications and unified into a system that is simple to use and easy to port to new hardware. The C language is used. Initial experience with the system has been good.
