Turbonet is a prototype system which physically implements both paradigms. It is a desirable system, in terms of its cost/performance ratio, to utilize in many computationally challenging applications of practical significance. This work is aimed to alleviate the weakness of parallel systems based solely on shared memory or message passing. An additional important issue to be aided in this work is load balancing which is a major problem in a growing number of scientific applications that give rise to programs with dynamic execution profiles.
