The programming notation Cantor is a research tool used at Caltech for ongoing experiments with fine-grain message-passing concurrent computers called multicomputers. Cantor is an actor-based language, and its semantics conform to the actor model of computation, as described by Agha [1]. A computation is expressed as a collection of objects that execute concurrently, and that synchronize and share data exclusively by message passing. The delivery of a message to an object causes the object to… CONTINUE READING
