Often, similar ideas or works have vastly different namings or covers. This is a hassle for searching in distant fields, especially in a non-native language.
Idea. We mathematically model (Petri nets, graphs, automatons, any formal way) architectures and algorithms. One of the models can be substituted for various behaviour data or even its implementation or mix of the model with a real data in general case. Then we simulate their interactions on paper or on an instrumental computer and obtain some useful predictions with aim on parallel computations without actually write the code and measuring its characteristics (full finished code at least, this isn't a simple profiling of a real implementation). For example, this way could trying to predict scaling, algorithm and architecture matching quality, performance, comparative measures of variants, etc.
Could you, please, name not obvious keywords or other leads (authors, titles, surveys are the most useful) to the articles containing similar ideas and their implementations?
"Obvious" keywords are "model, architecture, interaction, parallel computations, imitation, simulation" and their combinations. Synonyms could be missed too, if they aren't found by goggle with "~."
