The idea of this post is to illustrate how to apply the Actor Model, by taking advantage of its concurrence model to solve parallel problems. The kind of parallel problems that we can solve with the Actor Model are the same kind of problems that we can solve while using MPI systems.

In synthesis, the actor model is a concurrent programming model that treats each actor as the universal primitive of a concurrent computation.

When an Actor receives a message it can:

-Make local decisions.
-Create another actors.
-Send messages.
-Determinate how to reply to the next message.
