The Flagship project has the aim of designing a parallel computer system for the evaluation of declarative languages. The physical architecture of the machine consists of a set of closely coupled processor/store pairs communicating over a high performance communications network. A functional program to be evaluated is compiled into a Super-Combinator expression graph which is then simplified by graph reduction. The paper discusses the Flagship machine architecture and describes in detail the computational model which defines how a functional program is represented and reduced. The issues underlying the design of the main features of the computational model are examined.
