Abstract: A challenge for grid computing is finding abstractions that separate concerns about what a grid application must achieve from the specific resources on which it might be deployed. One approach, taken by a range of toolkits and APIs, is to add further layers of abstraction allowing explicit interaction with grid services. The developers' view, however, remains that of a stateful von Neumann machine, and the interleaving of grid services with domain computations adds complexity to systems. This paper reports early results from a project exploring the use of functional language technologies for computationally demanding problems in data visualization over the grid.
