Abstract: This modular and actor-based approach to the development of time-dependent distributed systems separates functional aspects from timing. The time-warp mechanism regulates the interaction policy among logical processes, shifting overhead from communication to computation.
Keywords: actor-based simulation, communication overhead, computation overhead, distributed simulation, modular simulation, time warp, timed Petri nets.
