  abstract =     "We present a distributed component-object model (DCOM)
                 based single system image (SSI) for dependable parallel
                 implementation of genetic programming (DPIGP). DPIGP is
                 aimed to significantly and reliably improve the
                 computational performance of genetic programming (GP)
                 exploiting the inherent parallelism in GP among the
                 evaluation of individuals. It runs on cost-effective
                 clusters of commodity, non-dedicated, heterogeneous
                 workstations or PCs. Developed SSI represents the pool
                 of heterogeneous workstations as a single, unified
                 virtual resource a metacomputer, and addresses the
                 issues of locating and allocating the physical
                 resources, communicating between the entities of DPIGP,
                 scheduling and load balancing. In addition, addressing
                 the issue of fault tolerance, SSI allows for building a
                 highly available metacomputer in which the cases of
                 workstation failure result only in a corresponding
                 partial degradation of the overall performance
                 characteristics of DPIGP. Adopting DCOM as a
                 communicating paradigm offers the benefits of software
                 platform- and network protocol neutrality of proposed
                 approach; and the generic support for the issues of
                 locating, allocating and security of the distributed
                 entities of DPIGP.",
