Abstract:

The computational schema is introduced as a means for describing asynchronous computational structures. This mathematically formulated schema provides for the representation of systems in which several asynchronously communicating processes may proceed concurrently while sharing computational resources. Based on the representation scheme, a theory of asynchronous communication has been developed which allows theorems about the processing characteristics of modular systems to be proved. In particular, deterministic system output behavior is related to a set of conditions on subsystem intercommunication. Author
