Abstract: This report presents a dialect of Lisp, called QLAMBDA, which supports multi-processing. Along with the definition of the dialect, the report presents programming examples and performance studies of some programs written in QLAMBDA. Unlike other proposed multi-processing Lisps, QLAMBDA provides only a few very powerful and intuitive primitives rather than a number of parallel variants of familiar constructs.
