Abstract : This part describes the way the SIGMA system works. The individual components of the system, the main data structures, the communication and data paths, and some unifying concepts are identified and described. SIGMA has many parts, some operating asynchronously, some under user control, some not, some interacting in complex and subtle ways, some very simply. All these factors contribute to the complexity of documenting the design. (Author)
