This paper proposes a new computing model/methodology called Mass/Distancebased computing (MD-based computing for short) for solving a problem in an objectoriented open distributed environment. It introduces the notions of distance between objects and the mass of an object, and envisages solving a problem as a mutual effect between the computational field and the problem.
