## Abstract

Numerical solutions of realistic 2-D and 3-D inverse problems may require a very large amount of computation. A two-level concept on parallelism is often used to solve such problems. The primary level uses the problem partitioning concept which is a decomposition based on the mathematical/physical problem. The secondary level utilizes the widely used data partitioning concept. A theoretical performance model is built based on the two-level parallelism. The observed performance results obtained from a network of general purpose Sun Sparc stations are compared with the theoretical values. Restrictions of the theoretical model are also discussed.
