Rajan, A. V. S., Bavan, A. S. and Abeysinghe, Geetha (2007) Semantics for an asynchronous message passing system. In: Advances and innovations in systems, computing sciences and software engineering. Elleithy, Khaled, ed. Springer, pp. 83-88. ISBN 9781402062681. [Book Section] (doi:10.1007/978-1-4020-6268-1_16)


The main focus of this paper is to define the operational semantics for the message passing strategy called Asynchronous Message Passing System (AMPS) used in the distributed programming language, LIPS (Language for Implementing Parallel/distributed Systems). AMPS is a point-to-point message passing system that does not use any message buffers. It is based on simple architecture and interfaces. In order to adequately provide implementation information for the message passing strategy, we have defined the operational semantics and the codes needed for the abstract machine of LIPS.
