  abstract =     "We describe an environment for distributed computing
                 that uses the concept of well-known paradigms. The main
                 advantage of paradigm-oriented distributed computing is
                 that the user only needs to specify
                 application-specific sequential code, while the
                 underlying infrastructure takes care of the
                 parallelisation and distribution. The main features of
                 the proposed approach, called PODC, are the following:
                 (1) It is intended for loosely-coupled network
                 environments, not specialised 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
                 Web-based interactive graphics interface through which
                 programs are constructed, invoked, and monitored. The
                 three paradigms presently supported in PODC are the
                 bag-of-tasks, branch-and-bound search, and genetic
                 programming. We demonstrate their use, implementation,
                 and performance within the mobile agent-based PODC
