  abstract= "The architecture and performance of a Java implementation of
     a structured distributed shared memory system, PastSet, is
     described. The PastSet abstraction allows programmers to
     write applications that run efficiently on different
     architectures, from clusters to widely distributed systems.
     PastSet is a tuple-based three-dimensional structured
     distributed shared memory system, which provides the
     programmer with operations to perform causally ordered reads
     and writes of tuples to a virtual structured memory space
     called the PastSet. It has been shown that the original,
     native code, PastSet was able to outperform MPI and PVM when
     running real applications and we show that the design
     translates into Java so that Java PastSet is a qualified
     competitor to other cluster application programming
     interfaces for Java."
