Advances in Computers, Vol. 45: Emphasizing Parallel by Marvin Zelkowitz (Ed.)

By Marvin Zelkowitz (Ed.)

Because its first quantity in 1960, Advances in pcs has awarded specific assurance of thoughts in and software program and in laptop thought, layout, and functions. It has additionally supplied contributorswith a medium during which they could learn their topics in better intensity and breadth than that allowed through ordinary magazine articles. accordingly, many articles became common references that remain of important, lasting price regardless of the quick development happening within the box.

Example text

Using software such as the Coordinator system [14], the state of a negotiation between a person A acting as supplier and another person B acting as consumer can be maintained and transitions can be recorded by the computer. It is usual that as a result of a negotiation process the supplier requests something from another supplier C, that is, the negotiation process is intrinsically recursive. If process models are not recursive, the subordinated negotiation process will not have any formal link to the original process.

In general, marked edges enable the start of a node and marked nodes represent activities in execution and thus enable the termination of the node. Thus, the initial marking enables the termination of the start node, which will mark the edge following the start node. Or-nodes require one token in one of the incoming edges to start; upon termination they add a token to one of its outgoing edges. And-nodes require one token from each incoming edge to start, and produce one token in each outgoing edge upon finishing.

However, because of multi-threading, it is not obvious that ideas from languages such as Ada, Lisp or C can be mapped to information processes. Thus, it is not surprising that few languages have exception-handling constructs. In Rasp/VPL and in WAM [15] when a token reaches the end of a model, all activities within the model are deleted. , more than one output (defined in Section 4). An explicit construct to abort the execution of unneeded activities is the unbalanced connector [25]. The unbalanced connector is a sort of and-node in which one predecessor is explicitly shown, and other predecessors are implicit (all successors are explicitly shown).
