Here I will emphasize the comparison of communities between continents. At
these levels parallel/convergent evolution is at its most dramatic, for the former
choice extends the matching of individual species niches to include the relative
juxtaposition of these niches in the community, their number and shape, and the
latter condition assures us that the species in these communities so compared
will bear minimal taxonomic affiliation to each other and thus minimal
resemblance due to ...

The parallel community have focused on issues of performance and scalability
while the distributed community have been more concerned with sharing and
wide area connectivity. There is now however some evidence that the interests of
the two communities are converging. This paper examines arguments for and
against convergence (from the perspective of the distributed systems community).
In particular, the paper examines three trends towards convergence: i) the
emergence ...

One of the most persuasive illustrations of some sense of order or pattern within
community structure is the recognition of an apparent regularity in the manner in
which a particular set of resources may be 'apportioned' amongst a set of
consumers - even in widely disparate communities. There is a striking similarity of
niche-form and niche structure, of the way 'the jobs are partitioned out' in 'parallel'
communities. Thus, for example, Cody demonstrates that the division of available
 ...

Parallel. Play. William. F. Tate. IV. As I reflect on the content presented in this
volume, many thoughts emerge that might be offered in this final commentary.
However, I focus my discussion on two thoughts. The first thought is related to the
critical need to develop research and practice pathways as part of civic regimes
aimed to improve schools, communities, and neighborhoods. By research and
practice pathway, I envision a mutually informing set of interactions among
scholars, civic ...

In this paper, we describe how a metacomputing environment called Web
Operating System (WOSTM) together with a new programming paradigm called
ParCeL-2 may be used to exploit available computing resources on a parallel/
distributed environment. The main feature of the WOSTM is to manage contexts
of execution (hardware, software, time, etc). The WOSTM fulfills users' requests
while considering all possible execution contexts in order to provide the
application with the ...

The problem of community structure detection in complex networks has been
intensively investigated in recent years. In this paper we propose a genetic based
approach to discover communities in social networks. The algorithm optimizes a
simple but efficacious fitness function able to identify densely connected groups
of nodes with sparse connections between groups. The method is efficient
because the variation operators are modified to take into consideration only the
actual ...

[9,10] proposed a method, named Principal Modularity Maximization (PMM) that
for each layer, first the structural features, corresponding to the top eigenvectors
with positive eigenvalues, are extracted, then these features are combined to
obtain latent communities. In this paper a new method, named MultiGA (
Multilayer Genetic Algorithm), able to detect a shared community structure in a
multilayer network, is proposed. MultiGA adopts a genetic representation of
individuals that allows ...
