Contents: Part 1 Transputers and routers - components for concurrent machines: transputers; routers; message routing; addressing; universal routing. Part 2 The T9000 communications architecture: the IMS T9000; instruction set basics and processes; implementation of communications; alternative input; shared channels and resources; use of resources. Part 3 DS-links and C104 routers: using links between devices; levels of link protocol; channel communication; errors on links; network communications - the IMS C104. Part 4 Connecting DS-links: signal properties of transputer links; PCB connections; cable connections; error rates; optical interconnections; standards. Part 5 Using links for system control: control networks; system initialization; debugging; errors; embedded applications; control system; commands. Part 6 Models of DS-link performance: performance of the DS-link protocol; bandwidth effects of latency; a model of contention in a single C104. Part 7 Performance of C104 networks: the C104 switch; networks and routing algorithms; the networks investigated; the traffic patterns; universal routing; results; performance predictability. Part 8 General purpose parallel computers: universal message passing machines; networks for universal message passing machines; building universal parallel computers from T9000s and C104s. Part 9 The implementation of large parallel database machines on T9000 and C104 networks: database machines; review of the T8 design; an interconnection strategy; data storage; interconnection strategy; relational processing; referential integrity processing; concurrency management; complex data types; recovery; resource allocation and scalability. Part 10 A generic architecture of ATM systems: an introduction to asynchronous transfer mode; ATM systems; mapping ATM onto DS-links. Part 11 An enabling infrastructure for a distributed multimedia industry: network requirements for multimedia; integration and scaling; directions in networking technology; convergence of applications, communications and parallel processing; a multimedia industry - the need for standard inferfaces; outline of a multimedia architecture; levels of conformance; building stations from components; mapping the architecture onto transputer technology. Appendices: new link cable connector; link waveforms; DS-link electrical specification; an equivalent circuit for DS-link output pads.
