ABSTRACT
While technology improvements in VLSI favor the building of massively parallel computers, the key obstacle to the widespread adoption of such computers is the lack of a methodology for developing software that achieves both portability and high performance. This paper presents a virtual machine intended to serve as the cornerstone of such a methodology. The PM virtual machine can be mapped efficiently to different physical machines and enables the development of software tools and applications that can be ported across different parallel machines.
