A computer comprising a plurality of interconnected processing nodes arranged in a toroid configuration in which multiple layers of interconnected nodes are arranged along an axis; each layer comprising a plurality of processing nodes connected in a ring in a non axial plane by at least an intralayer respective set of links between each pair of neighbouring processing nodes, the links in each set adapted to operate simultaneously; wherein each of the processing nodes in each layer is connected to a respective corresponding node in each adjacent layer by an interlayer link to form respective rings along the axis; the computer programmed to provide a plurality of embedded one-dimensional logical paths and to transmit data around each of the embedded one-dimensional paths in such a manner that the plurality of embedded one- dimensional logical paths operate simultaneously, each logical path using all processing nodes of the computer in a sequence.
