Grammar Systems: A Grammatical Approach to Distribution and Cooperation
  • G. Paun
  • Computer Science
  • ICALP
  • 10 July 1995
TLDR
This book investigates two major systems: firstly, cooperating distributed grammar systems, where the grammars work on one common sequential form and the cooperation is realized by the control of the sequence of activegrammars; secondly, parallel communicating grammar systems where each grammar works on its own sequential forms and cooperation is done by means of communicating between Grammars.
