Abstract

In recent years, considerable interest in the design of parallel and distributed applications has emerged from various disciplines including database systems, network systems, operating systems and computer architecture, as well as the traditional high-performance community. A distributed application can be de'ned as 'a system of several independent software components, cooperating towards a common purpose, where the components are not all co- located at a single site'. Applications of this type represent a significant proportion of computer software today.
