Title: Interpretive model for ''A Concurrency Method''

This paper describes an interpreter for ''A Concurrency Method,'' in which concurrency is the inherent mode of operation and not an appendage to sequentiality. This method is based on the notions of data-drive and single-assignment while preserving a natural manner of programming. The interpreter is designed for and implemented on a network of Corvus Concept Personal Workstations, which are based on the Motorola MC68000 super-microcomputer. The interpreter utilizes the MC68000 processors in each workstation by communicating across OMNINET, the local area network designed for the workstations. The interpreter is a complete system, containing an editor, a compiler, an operating system with load balancer, and a communication facility. The system includes the basic arithmetic and trigonometric primitive operations for mathematical computations as well as the ability to construct more complex operations from these. 9 refs., 5 figs.
