Isolating computation and communication concerns into separate pure computation and pure coordination modules enhances modularity, un-derstandability, and reusability of parallel and/or distributed software. MANIFOLD is a pure coordination language that encourages this separation. We use real, concrete, running MANIFOLD programs to demonstrate the concept(More)
A workable approach for modernization of existing software into parallel/distributed applications is through coarse-grain restructuring. If, for instance, entire subroutines of legacy code can be plugged into the new structure, the investment required for the re-discovery of the details of what they do can be spared. The resulting renovated software can(More)
Evidence of in.ury by heat in mammalian tissues. Am. 1g64.-Some possible criteria of injury by heat were investigated using slices of rat liver, cerebral cortex, and renal cortex heated in vitro. The following were measured at approximately I-C intervals between 40 and 47.5 C, and in each case the results were compared with controls incubated for the same(More)
Opinion is divided on issues concerning a cardiovascular origin of heatstroke pathophysiology as well as those concerning the mechanism of circulatory failure in heat. Such controversies seem to arise because of insufficient data covering the prodromal period of heatstroke. A reappraisal of the nature and sequence of early circulatory responses to heat(More)
Isolating computation and communication concerns into separate pure computation and pure coordination modules enhances modularity, understandability, and reusability of parallel and/or distributed software. This can be achieved by moving communication primitives (such as SendMessage and ReceiveMessage), which are now commonly scattered in application codes,(More)
Aspartate aminotransferase activity was measured in plasma, in liver and in heart mitochondrial and cytoplasmic preparations from rats immediately after death and after a post-mortem interval of 15 h. No significant stimulation of activity on addition of pyridoxal 5-phosphate to the assay medium could be demonstrated in any preparations obtained immediately(More)
