Parallel computers: object-oriented, functional, logic
The book brings together in one source a comprehensive review of the work of ESPRIT Project 415. It also provides a good overview of the general area of novel parallel computer architectures and programming languages. Chapter 1 provides a survey of parallel computing research in Europe; chapter 2 provides a background to parallel computing techniques. It comprises sections on the major application areas of parallel processing, high level programming languages, models of parallel computation, parallel hardware architectures, language implementation & execution. Chapters 3, 4 describe the work of Subproject A; chapters 5 through 9 present Subprojects B to F, respectively.
