We describe a general-purpose shared-memory model for parallel computation, called the qsm 22 , which provides a high-level shared-memory abstraction for parallel algorithm design, as well as the ability t o b e e m ulated in an e ective manner on the bsp, a l o wer-level, distributedmemory model. We present new emulation results that show that very little generality is lost by not having a'gap parameter' at memory.
