I am working on a new library. It is a computational framework where the
computations follow the following pattern:

  - Users build a computational object by selecting the computations
    they are interested in (or author their own computational primimtives
    which fit within the framework).
  - Users push data into the object one sample at a time
  - The object computes the requested quantities in the most
    efficient method possible (resolving dependencies between
    requested calculations, cacheing intermediate results, etc.)
  - The object may or may not be stateful.

What should such a library be called? Is there an accepted term for such
a computational model?
