The growing importance of telecommunication networks has stimulated research on a new generation of programming languages. Such languages view the network and its resources as a global environment in which computations take place. In particular, they support the notion of code mobility and state distribution. To understand, discuss, evaluate, and compare such languages, it is necessary to develop an abstract model that allows the meaning of mobility and state distribution to be defined precisely.

Abstract

The growing importance of telecommunication networks has stimulated research on a new generation of programming languages. Such languages view the network and its resources as a global environment in which computations take place. In particular, they support the notion of code mobility and state distribution. To understand, discuss, evaluate, and compare such languages, it is necessary to develop an abstract model that allows the meaning of mobility and state distribution to be defined precisely. The purpose of this paper is to provide such a model and to apply it to the analysis of a number of existing new languages.
