The field of distributed systems is now entering a stage of maturity with work focusing on standards for Open Distributed Processing (ODP). However, it is still important that standardisation remains responsive to emerging technological demands such as the emergence of distributed multimedia computing. This new field introduces continuous media data types… (More)
Reactive scripts are designed to get a exible approach for responsive systems; they are based on the reactive/synchronous approach, well suited to real time programming. A reactive script interpretor is a broadcast event-driven interpretor which can react to several commands in parallel. Generating events and waiting for occurrence of events are the basic… (More)
This paper presents a Java-based reactive programming framework well adapted to the construction of complex behaviors for CG objects within virtual environments. This reactive approach is based on an instantaneously broadcast event model and a semantically-sound synchronous/reactive formalism. The reactive framework degree of expressiveness is illustrated… (More)
One considers systems made of synchronizers to which distributed reactive machines are connected. The corresponding model is described with its implementation in Java, using Su-garCubes and the RMI mechanism.
Two main mechanisms are thought to affect the prevalence of endophyte-grass symbiosis in host populations: the mode of endophyte transmission, and the fitness differential between symbiotic and non-symbiotic plants. These mechanisms have mostly been studied in synthetic grass populations. If we are to improve our understanding of the ecological and… (More)
