Abstract

In recent years a lot of research has been invested in parallel processing of numerical applications. However, parallel processing of Symbolic and AI applications has received less attention. This paper presents a system for parallel symbolic computitig, narned ACE, based on the logic programming paradigm. ACE is a computational model for the full Prolog language, capable of exploiting Or-parall< lism and Independent And-parallelism. In this paper vve focus on the implementation of the and-parallel part of the ACE system (ralled &ACE) on a shared memory multiprocessor, d< scribing its organization, some optimizations, and presenting some performance figures, proving the abilhy of &ACE to efficiently exploit parallelism.
