Abstract
In an amorphous computing environment, myriads of simple computing elements interact locally, under the control of a common program, to produce some prespecified coherent behaviour. The goal of amorphous computing is to find programming paradigms that will enable us to write such programs effectively. We have designed and built an amorphous computing simulator that is capable of simulating 100,000 processors running a small program that involves all processes reachable from a designated starting processor. The simulator is modularised, so that inter-processor communications, controls and outputs are pluggable. The simulator also implements a client-server architecture that allows multiple remote users to collaboratively access a single instance of a simulation.....
