Abstract : The work of Adams, Karp and Miller, Luconi, and Rodriguez on formal models for parallel computations and computer systems is reviewed. A general definition of a parallel schema is given so that the similarities and differences of the models can be discussed. Primary emphasis is on the control structures used to achieve parallel operation and on properties of the models such as determinacy and equivalence. Decidable and undecidable properties are summarized. (Author)
