Description/Abstract

We present the semantics of the annotations pcall and fork for parallel evaluation of Scheme. Annotated programs are proved to be behaviourly indistinguishable from their non-annotated counterparts, even in the presence of first-class continuations and side-effects. The semantics takes the form of an abstract machine, which can be regarded as a guideline for an implementation.
