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, first published in 1973, is a mathematical model of concurrent computation. This article is about the early history of the Actor model. See Actor model middle history and Actor model later history for subsequent developments. A fundamental challenge in defining the Actor model is that it did not provide for global states so that a computational step could not be defined as going from one global state to the next global state as had been done in all previous models of computation.show more
