This chapter addresses tuple spaces, a programming abstraction for data sharing and coordination among distributed processes. The shared memory is called a tuple space, a multiset of elementary data structures. Each tuple is a sequence of typed fields and coordination among processes occurs through the writing and reading of tuples. Originally introduced in the context of parallel computing, it has recently enjoyed wide popularity to develop wireless applications. This chapter concisely describes some of the most representative systems implementing this abstraction and analyzes them along some fundamental dimensions of comparison.
