Title: Cactus - the CAL actor Clojure language
Examiner: Sven Robertz
Supervisor: Jörn Janneck (LTH)

This thesis explores the possibility and practicality of creating an actor based programming language on top of Clojure. It also gives an insight into the iterations that the language went through to achieve it's current form. We discuss various design choices and limitations of the language, and suggest improvements. Further some measurements were made to see how well an implementation of The Smith-Waterman algorithm scaled on different machines with different number of cores. We find that increased parallelization of the algorithm grants improved performance and that in general the language's performance scales with more parallelization.
