On the Expressive Power of KLAIM-based Calculi

R. {De Nicola} and D. Gorla and R. Pugliese


In this work, we study the expressive power of variants of KLAIM, an experimental language with programming primitives for global computing 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 based on Java. The expressivity of its constructs is tested by distilling from it some (more and more foundational) calculi and studying the encoding of each of the considered languages into a simpler one. An encoding of the asynchronous pi-calculus into one of these calculi is also presented.
