Summary: [For the entire collection see Zbl 0698.00018.]
We review results on embedding network and program structures into popular parallel computer architectures. Such embeddings can be viewed as high level descriptions of efficient methods to simulate an algorithm designed for one type of parallel machine on a different network structure and/or techniques to distribute data/program variables to achieve optimum use of all available processors.
