Abstract: "The central result of this work is the discovery of a new class of architectures, which I call D-RISC, sharing some characterisctics of both data flow and von Neumann RISC computers, for concurrent computation. This rests on an original and simple theory which relates the demands of concurrent computation on hardware resources to the fundamental performance constraints of technology. I show that dataflow and von Neumann architecture have different fundamental hardware constraints to performance, and that therefore a D-RISC architecture, which balances these two constraints, is likely to be optimum for concurrent computation. The work forms four related section
