This paper explores the possibility of using a large-scale array of microprocessors as a computational facility for the execution of massive numerical computations with a high degree of parallelism. By microprocessor we mean a processor realized on one or a few semiconductor chips that include arithmetic and logical facilities and some memory. The current state of LSI technology makes this approach a feasible and attractive candidate for use in a macrocomputer facility.
