We have developed a programming template to implement divide and conquer algorithms on MIMD computers. The template is based on the parallel divide and conquer function of Z.G. Mou and P. Hudak (1988). We explore the programmability and performance of this approach by solving some well known numerical problems on a shared memory multiprocessor and a multicomputer. A byproduct of this work is a new parallel algorithm for solving tridiagonal systems of equations.<>
