               Scheme UK Meeting: 1 June 2005

The next meeting of the Scheme UK user's group will be held
on 1 June 2005 from 7pm till we leave for the pub.  The
meeting will take place at the offices of LShift (see
http://www.lshift.net/contact.html for directions).  This
meeting will be held in conjuction with UK Lispers.

Nigel Walker: Computational modelling of communication
networks

Network protocols can sometimes be interpreted as solving
distributed optimisation problems. For example, a routing
algorithm minimises the total cost of flow, given a certain
demand pattern. This perspective opens up a unifying view
of
many processes and interactions occuring within
communications networks. I will briefly explain the
background theory, and will show how it leads to a
programming idiom for models of network processes. I will
describe a prototype implemented as an extension of Scheme.


=========================================================

Scheme UK is a UK based group of people interested in the
Scheme programming language in particular, and advanced
programming languages in general.  We are interested in
both practical and theoretic aspects.  We meet on the
first Wednesday of each month.  Newcomers are welcome.
