This article deals with the issue of fault tolerance and error recovery in a parallel graph reduction computer such as the "MaRS" machine presently under development at CERT. This is a multiprocessor system with decentralized control and asynchronous, delayed communications between cooperating, tightly coupled processes. A solution for the problem of MaRS(More)
We describe the MaRS machine: a parallel, distributed control multiprocessor for graph reduction using a functional machine language. The object code language is based on an optimized set of combinators, and its functional character allows an automatic parallelisation of the execution. A programming language, "MaRS LISP", has also been developed. A(More)
