A path through a search space can be defined by a sequence of integers called an oracle. The Delphi machine consists of a network of individual workstations co-operating to execute a Prolog program. Using oracles, these machines automatically partition the search space between them, thereby exploiting OR-parallelism. This report provides a brief description of the tree-searching algorithms (control strategies) implemented in the Delphi machine.
