### Abstract

This paper presents Fortran D, a version of Fortran enhanced with data decomposition specifications. It is designed to support two fundamental stages of writing a data-parallel program: problem mapping using sophisticated array alignments, and machine mapping through a rich set of data distribution functions. We believe that Fortran D provides a simple machine-independent programming model for most numerical computations. We intend to evaluate its usefulness for both programmers and advanced compilers on a variety of parallel architectures.
