Currently the design of highly parallel supercomputers is one of the most challenging problems in engineering. The purpose of this thesis is to describe how the problem was approached in the design, implementation and building of a Torus Double Transitive Closure Network of Microprocessors, using the T414 Transputer as the basic Unit of Computation. Also compares the performance of the evolved model, from one Transputer to the final stage of sixteen Transputers running in parallel. All the programs and examples presented in this thesis were implemented in the OCCAM2 Programming Language, using the Transputer Development System, D700c, BETA 2.0 release March 1987 compiler version. Keywords Theses, Transputer, Parallel processing, Microprocessor networks, OCCAM Programming language, Heat flow in a plate. rh
