In this report an introduction to the Connection Machine model-2 implementation and programming is given. The Connection Machine system is an integrated combination of hardware and software designed for high- speed data parallel computing. The hardware elements of the CM-2 system include front-end computers that provide the development and execution environments for the system software, a parallel processing unit of 64K (65536) processors that execute the data parallel operations, and a high- performance data parallel I/O system. Operations can take place in parallel on data in all the processors. The system software is based upon the operating system or environment of the front-end (host) computer. Users can program using familiar languages and programming constructs, with all the development tools provided by the front end
