# Actor model theory

In theoretical computer science, Actor model theory concerns theoretical issues for the Actor model. Actors are the primitives that form the basis of the Actor model of concurrent digital computation. In response to a message that it receives, an Actor can make local decisions, create more Actors, send more messages, and designate how to respond to the next message received. Actor model theory incorporates theories of the events and structures of Actor computations, their proof theory, and denotational models. (Wikipedia).

Here we give the basic setup for Model Theory. I learned this from a talk Tom Scanlon gave in 2010 at CUNY.

The Incorrect Assumptions of the Ideal Gas Model - and Why It Still Works!

What exactly IS an Ideal Gas? And why do physicists use this model to represent real gases? In this video we'll compare the assumptions made by the ideal gas model with the properties of real gases, as well as how we can improve the ideal gas law in certain scenarios. As with every model

Am I only streaming? Thinking reactive - Rob Harrop

In 1978, Tony Hoare presented communicating sequential processes (CSP) to the world. Systems envisioned by CSP are composed of sequential processes that communicate via message passing. In 1973, Hewitt, Bishop, and Steiger introduced the actor model to the world. Actors, like processes in

Visualization of tensors - part 1

This video visualizes tensors. It shows some introduction to tensor theory and demonstrates it with the Cauchy stress tensor. Future parts of this series will show more theory and more examples. It talks about the term 'tensor' as used in physics and math. In the field of AI the term 'te

Wicked Good Ruby 2013 - Bloom: A Language for Disorderly Distributed Programming

By Christopher Meiklejohn Traditional programming languages use a model of computation where individual instructions are executed in order. However, when building distributed systems this model fails to match the reality of how your application code is actually executed. Bloom is a langua
