      Component-based development of dynamic workflow systems using the coordination paradigm 

      Papadopoulos, George Angelos; Fakas, Georgios John (2003)
      We argue for the need to use control-based, event-driven and state-defined coordination models and associated languages in modelling and automating business processes (workflows). We propose a two-level architecture of a ...

      Computational assessment of distributed decomposition methods for stochastic linear programs 

      Vladimirou, Hercules (1998)
      Incorporating uncertainty in optimization models gives rise to large, structured mathematical programs. Decomposition procedures are well-suited for parallelization, thus providing a promising venue for solving large ...

      Computing on a partially eponymous ring 

      Mavronicolas, Marios; Michael, Loizos; Spirakis, Paul G. (2009)
      We study the partially eponymous model of distributed computation, which simultaneously generalizes the anonymous and the eponymous models. In this model, processors have identities, which are neither necessarily all ...
