ABSTRACT
A construct is proposed for parallel programming, called soma (software machine). A soma is a sequential process that can communicate with other somas by exchanging messages via mailboxes. The soma construct is well suited for implementation on conventional as well as on distributed computer architectures, the main characteristic of the latter being the absence of a common store.
