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
