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?
