Über diesen Titel


This book provides a comprehensive introduction to WAVE, a revolutionary technology that combines the power and flexibility of conventional sequential programming with the open, fully distributed architectures found in the most sophisticated CORBA-based systems. Developed by Peter Sapaty-a noted pioneer in the use of intelligent agents in open and distributed computing-more than a decade before Java, WAVE was designed specifically for use in large-scale distributed information systems.
In Mobile Processing in Distributed and Open Environments, Sapaty provides a complete, hands-on tutorial in the WAVE programming language and its applications. Rather than simply describe the language and its features, he supplies a vast collection of WAVE algorithms, fully explained with working examples and application suggestions. He also supplies expert advice and guidance on designing, developing, and managing agent systems. Crucial topics covered include:
* Managing information networks
* Designing and managing communication networks
* Performing distributed simulation and virtual reality with WAVE
* Building and managing intelligent infrastructures for distributed systems
* Using WAVE in conventional programming

From the Author:

WAVE reflects quite a different kind of the system thinking and organization, which is very much close to the holistic, or gestalt, philosophy and theory considering a well organized whole as much greater than the sum of its components. WAVE, based on active integral behavioral patterns dynamically ruling any distributed systems by spatially matching them, while "blowing" into them the needed "consciousness" and "soul", is a true challenge to many traditional, atomistic, artificial intelligence theories and the resulting software technologies, as societies of agents exchanging messages, which often can hardly provide even the mentioned above sum. In these systems, the needed external behavior is hoped to emerge as a result of interactions of predetermined specialized agents, whereas in WAVE the behavior, sense, and the very existence of individual agents are often dynamically inferred within the well organized, evolving, and goal-approaching whole, the latter being efficiently expressed in the specific WAVE syntax directly, and in a distributed form. That is why when people see a couple of strings of wave code solving, say, a complex classic graph or network theory problem in a most parallel and completely distributed manner via the Internet, where each graph node may reside on a separate computer, without explicit agents sending messages to each other, they are often skeptical at the beginning whether this is possible even in principle, as within the current software religions and technologies, as well as the received education, they must write tens or even hundreds of pages of code to achieve this.

We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
