The Paper
Scott Francis presents The Art of the Propagator (

"We develop a programming model built on the idea that the basic computational elements are autonomous machines interconnected by shared cells through which they communicate. Each machine continuously examines the cells it is interested in, and adds information to some based on deductions it can make from information from the others. This model makes it easy to smoothly combine expression-oriented and constraint-based programming; it also easily accommodates implicit incremental distributed search in ordinary programs."

We will also be covering some extra material from the Revised Report on the Propagator Model ( , which contains the practical results from implementing the Propagator Model in MIT Scheme.
