Researching the composition of distributed active mobile objects that communicate using messages
The Caltech Infospheres Project researches compositional systems, which are systems built from interacting components. We are concerned with the theory and implementation of compositional systems that support peer-to-peer communication among persistent multithreaded distributed objects. Though we implement example systems and services in Java and Web technologies, our theories, models, and ideas are directly applicable to any distributed component-based system. Our group is primarily concerned with developing reliable distributed applications by composing existing and newly created software components in structured ways.
The Infospheres Group effectively stopped performing group research and development in 1999 as group members started on individual theses, faculty members went on leave, etc.
The Caltech Infospheres Project is part of the Compositional Systems Research Group of the Center for Research on Parallel Computation, led by Professor K. Mani Chandy. Other projects associated with the Compositional Systems Research Group include Problem Solving Environments, Archetypes, and our Infosphere Infrastructure.

The Infospheres Project is sponsored by the CISE directorate of the National Science Foundation under Problem Solving Environments grant CCR-9527130, the Center for Research in Parallel Computing under grant NSF CCR-9120008, and by Parasoft and Novell. The formal methods and adaptivity (reliability, mobility, security) parts of the project are sponsored by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research under grant AFOSR F49620-94-1-0244.
