In this paper we introduce an abstract data type for the distributed representation and efficient handling of sparse grids on parallel architectures. The new data layout, implemented by means of the PVM message passing library, provides partitioning and dynamic load balancing transparent to the applications making use of it. This enables parallelization of sequential partial differential equations (PDE) solvers based on sparse grids with hardly any source code modifications.
