Having several parts of a system simultaneously perform different parts of a task is an old notion that is proving more and more useful in the design of powerful computers.

Physics Today 37 (5), 38–45 (1984); https://doi.org/10.1063/1.2916240

The astounding progress in microelectronics, which has fueled the rapid growth in computer performance, is finally beginning to approach fundamental physical limits; henceforth computer architecture will become more important.

Physics Today 37 (5), 50–59 (1984); https://doi.org/10.1063/1.2916241

A few general techniques allow many small computers to work together efficiently and attack computationally demanding problems in fields ranging from aerodynamics to astrophysics.

Physics Today 37 (5), 66–74 (1984); https://doi.org/10.1063/1.2916244

New applicative languages, based on mathematical functions rather than FORTRAN‐like statements, will enhance our ability to decompose problems for concurrent processing.

Physics Today 37 (5), 67–75 (1984); https://doi.org/10.1063/1.2973891

Supercomputers simply need supercompilers that automatically restructure programs for concurrent processing.
