We introduce the concept of object parallelism. Object parallelism offers a unified model in comparison with traditional parallelisation techniques such as data parallelism and algorithmic parallelism. In addition, two fundamental advantages of the object-oriented approach are exploited. First, the abstraction level of object parallelism is application-oriented, ie., it hides the details of the underlying parallel architecture. Thus, the portability of parallel applications is inherent and program development can occur on monoprocessor systems. Secondly, the concept of specialisation (through inheritance) enables the integration of the given application code with advanced run time support for load balancing and fault tolerance
