Abstract

We discuss several issues involved in the implementation of ACE, a model capable of exploiting both And-parallelism and Or-parallelism in Prolog in a unified framework. The Orparallel model that ACE employs is based on the idea of stack-copying developed for Muse, while the model of independent And-parallelism is based on the distributed stack approach of &-Prolog. We discuss the organization of the workers, a number of sharing assumtions, techniques for work load detection, and issues relaed to which parts need to be copied when a flexible and-scheduling strategy is used.
