Abstract

We discuss the design of an abstract machine for the Reduce-OR process model (ROPM) for the AND and OR parallel execution of Prolog programs. It differs from the WAM in many respects, and some of these differences are elaborated upon in this paper. Some of the significant differences are related to the binding environment which has been designed to support AND and OR parallel execution of logic programs on both shared and nonshared memory machines, the process model, and the handling of solutions for AND parallel branches in the Data Join Graph (DJG 1) that is used to represent data dependencies in a Prolog clause. An emulator for the abstract machine has been implemented and is targeted for both shared and nonshared memory machines.
