Range of Computational Models

Models of computation can be classified into three categories: sequential models, functional models, and concurrent models.

Computational Models - Video

Definitions

  • -Sequential: One in which instructions are executed one after another. There may be branches in the program, but the general principle is that each instruction follows on from the previous one.
  • -Parallel: One in which each program instruction is executed simultaneously on multiple processors in order to get the results faster. Using multi-cores in processors is an example of parallel computing. It is by using parallel processing that super computers are getting faster and faster.
  • -Multi-agent: one in which computer systems co-operate and co-ordinate with other agents to achieve their goals. Swarm robots are examples of multi-agents.
