Abstract

A novel technique is described for interconnecting two or more digital computers for purposes of performing multiprocessing, parallel processing or shared processing operations. This technique makes multiprocessing possible for the case of computers having operating systems which are sufficiently different such that multiprocessing is either very difficult or not possible by means of existing interconnection mechanisms.
