This paperl discusses the efi-iciency of a parallel text retrieval system that is based on the Vector Space Model. Specifically, we describe a general parallel retrieval algorithm for use with this model, the application of the algorithm in the FIRE system [I], and its implementation on the high performance GCe131512 Parsytec parallel machine [2]. The use of this machine's t we-dimensional grid of processors provides an efficient baais for the virtual tree that lies at the heart of our
