Resource model for heterogenous distributed computer system with local connections and its graph.

Keywords: Parallel and distributed computer systems, resource model for computer system, artificial intelligence tasks, game trees, Monte-Carlo tree search method, MCTS, MCTS parallelization.


Basing on the MCTS method analysis and approaches to its parallelization the paper proposes a new resource model of a heterogeneous distributed computer system with local connections (HDCSLC) and its graph. Differences of the model and its graph from the known generalized graph of a resource system are shown. It is supposed that the proposed model and graph would allow to create new resource planning techniques for HDCSLC with the aim of implementation of various kinds of MCTS parallelization.
