Actor Model


The actor model is a very popular concurrency model by Carl Hewitt from MIT introduced in the `70's.

  • An Actor is an agent that receives and sends messages, behaving independently from other actors in the system.
  • On each message, the actor is able to start new actors, compute data or reply with messages to other existing actors.
