  abstract =     "We describe the implementation underlying an
                 environment for distributed computing that uses the
                 concept of well-known paradigms. The main advantage of
                 paradigmoriented distributed computing is that the user
                 only needs to specify application-specific sequential
                 code, while the underlying infrastructure takes care of
                 the parallelization and distribution. The main features
                 of the proposed approach, called PODC, which
                 differentiate it from other approaches, are the
                 following: (1) It is intended for looselycoupled
                 network environments, not specialized multiprocessors;
                 (2) it is based on an infrastructure of mobile agents;
                 (3) it supports programming in C, rather than a
                 functional or special-purpose language, and (4) it
                 provides a Webbased interactive graphics interface
                 through which programs are constructed, invoked, and
                 monitored. The three paradigms presently supported in
                 PODC are the bag-oftasks, the branch-and-bound, and
                 genetic programming. We describe their implementation
                 and performance within the mobile agent-based PODC
