Idle agents steal parallel work from the goal queues of other agents.2 We will also assume that stack sets have a new memo area for storing solutions (explained further later, see Figure 2).
Parallel Backtracking with Answer Memoing for Independent And-Parallelism
When some of the goals executing backtracking in parallel fin d a new answer, backtracking stops by suspending the rest of the goals and saving their state. • The solution found is saved in the memoing area, in order to avoid recomputation.
Parallel Backtracking with Answer Memoing for Independent And-Parallelism
Memoing answers does not require having the bindings for these answers on the stack; in fact they should be stashed away and reinstalled when necessary.
Parallel Backtracking with Answer Memoing for Independent And-Parallelism
Out-of-order backtracking, combined with answer memoing not to lose answer combinations, can avoid trapped goals if no priority is given to any of the parallel goals, because there will always be a backtrackable goal on the stack top to continue the execution of the program.
Parallel Backtracking with Answer Memoing for Independent And-Parallelism

Properties of MEMOs have been estimated using the Relativistic Mean Field model.
Signatures of Quark-Gluon-Plasma formation in high energy heavy-ion collisions: A critical review
If strangelets are stronger bound than “conventional” confined MEMOs, the latter may transform into strangelets.
Signatures of Quark-Gluon-Plasma formation in high energy heavy-ion collisions: A critical review
The cross sections for production of MEMOs in relativistic heavy ion collisions rely heavily on model parameters (e.g. in the in the coalescence model p0 and r0).
Signatures of Quark-Gluon-Plasma formation in high energy heavy-ion collisions: A critical review
Due to the possibility of creating MEMOs in a hadronic scenario and their possible subsequent transformation into strangelets, the formation of a QGP is not a necessary prerequisite for the creation of strangelets.
