This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Third European Conference on the Parallel Virtual Machine, EuroPVM '96, the 1996 European PVM users' group meeting, held in Munich, Germany, in October 1996.
The parallel virtual machine, PVM, was developed at the University of Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory in cooperation with Emory University and Carnegie Mellon University to support distributed computing. This volume comprises 51 revised full contributions devoted to PVM. The papers are organized in topical sections on evaluation of PVM; Applications: CFD solvers; tools for PVM; non-numerical applications; extensions to PVM; etc.
