Abstract:

This is a quarterly publication presenting articles covering recent developments on Far Eastern particularly Japanese scientific research. It is hoped that these reports which do not constitute part of the scientific literature will prove to be of value to scientists by providing items of interest well in advance of the usual scientific publications. Overall, the Japanese have built some impressive experimental parallel computing systems. In the academic, industrial, and government research labs machines are being built to test new ideas in parallel computing and to serve as test beds for parallel software development. These machines take advantage of the latest semicustom VLSI technology and are built to industrial standards. However, with the exception of the group at ETL, they have come up with few innovative ideas to solve the outstanding problems in parallel computing such as load balancing, resource management, fast context switching, fast communication, program decomposition, and debugging.
