Sequential Versus Parallel Simulationprogramms
DMASS - A Distributed Multi Agent System for Social Simulation
This is -like SMASS- an action centered system,
but it runs on properly distributed hardware (transputer systems). On
the hardware level, each actor is represented by one processor and the
appertaining memory. All relations and interactions are executed in terms of
exchange of messages via hard wired links. The system is programmed in a distributed version of PROLOG
Brain Aid Prolog which yields a practically
unrestricted range of message contents and thus has a big advantage over
most other programmes struggling with particular formats for message
contents. Results can be depicted with the graphics package from
SMASS. Alas, there are no more active transputers systems available.
