Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In computer science, the Actor model and process calculi are two closely related approaches to the modelling of concurrent digital computation. There are many similarities between the two approaches, but also several differences: There is only one Actor model; there are numerous process calculi, developed for reasoning about a variety of different kinds of concurrent systems at various levels of detail. The Actor model was inspired by the laws of physics and depends on them for its fundamental axioms, i.e. physical laws; the process calculi were originally inspired by algebra.
