43 years of actors: a taxonomy of actor models and their key properties

Joeri De Koster, Tom Van Cutsem, Wolfgang De Meuter
2016 Proceedings of the 6th International Workshop on Programming Based on Actors, Agents, and Decentralized Control - AGERE 2016  
It is now 43 years later and since then researchers have explored a plethora of variations on this model. This paper presents a history of the Actor Model throughout those years.  ...  Additionally this paper lists some of the key properties along which actor systems can be evaluated and formulates some general insights about the design and rationale of the different actor families across  ...  A summary of the different actor languages discussed in this paper and their properties with respect to the granularity of their concurrency model can be found in Table 4 .  ...

Actor-network procedures: Modeling multi-factor authentication, device pairing, social interactions [article]

Dusko Pavlovic, Catherine Meadows
2011 arXiv   pre-print
In the present paper we propose actor-networks as a formal model of computation in heterogenous networks of computers, humans and their devices; and we introduce Procedure Derivation Logic (PDL) as a framework  ...  We illustrate their workings by analysing a popular form of two-factor authentication, and a multi-channel device pairing procedure, devised for this occasion.  ...  The first author would like to thank Wolter Pieters [61] for introducing him to Bruno Latour's ideas about actor-networks.  ...
