One approach to distributed parallel programming is to utilize self-migrating threads. Computations can be distributed first, and parallelized second. The first step produces a distributed sequential thread, which can be incrementally parallelized by the second step. This paper prescribes three transformations that turn distributed sequential programs into distributed parallel programs. Real-life examples and performance data are presented, and the advantages of our approach are discussed.
