Describes the use of a very high-level equational language and distributed processing in a methodology for the development of large-scale systems in natural and social sciences, or engineering. The methodology denoted as cooperative computation, consists of dividing the labour among a number of organizationally and geographically dispersed groups, with each responsible for a respective local area, and the integration of the local areas into a global system. With an equational language, the user is able to express computations in terms of equations that are commonly used in science and engineering, without the detail required in programming computers. Object programs are then produced automatically through the use of a program generator and a configurator. The methodology is discussed primarily through an example, using the model language applied in environment of Project Link.
