De Nicola, Rocco and Gorla, Daniele and Pugliese, Rosario On the expressive power of KLAIM-based calculi. Theoretical Computer Science, 356 (3). pp. 387-421. ISSN 0304-3975 (2006)Full text not available from this repository.
We study the expressive power of variants of KLAIM, an experimental language with programming primitives for network-aware programming that combines the process algebra approach with the coordination-oriented one. KLAIM has proved to be suitable for programming a wide range of distributed applications with agents and code mobility, and has been implemented on the top of a runtime system written in Java. In this paper, the expressivity of its constructs is tested by distilling from it a few, more and more foundational, languages and by studying the encoding of each of them into a simpler one. The expressive power of the considered calculi is finally tested by comparing one of them with asynchronous π-calculus.
