ABSTRACT
Spreadsheets are important business tools. Increasingly they
are being used for simulation e.g. to perform risk analysis.
Such tasks have far greater computational demands than
traditional spreadsheet bookkeeping applications. In this
paper we show how spreadsheets can support
supercomputing. This is achieved without requiring the
spreadsheet user to have specialist tools or knowledge. The
key technical innovation is a mechanism enabling the
concurrent evaluation of spreadsheet functions. Furthermore
