A machine model for dataflow actors and its applications

Abstract
In application areas that process stream-like

data such as multimedia, networking and DSP, the pipelined

concurrent processing is frequently represented as a dataflow

network of communicating computational kernels connected

by FIFO queues. However, while dataflow is a natural

medium for conceptualizing and modeling stream-processing

systems, its adoption as a programming methodology has

been hindered by an unappealing choice between expres-

siveness and efficient implementability—efficient implemen-

tation techniques being primarily limited to restricted sub-

classes of dataflow programs.

The paper presents a simple machine model for a... (More)

The paper presents a simple machine model for a very

general class of dataflow programs and shows how it can be

used as a foundation for their efficient implementation. (Less)
