Computational concurrency has been with us for some time and is here to stay, particularly in the domain of distributed systems and fault-tolerant computers. Processes executing concurrently in such systems communicate in order to exchange information and to synchronize the activities they perform. Classical interprocess synchronization mechanisms, based on shared variables and semaphores, are neither efficient nor methodically sound; nor do they produce correct solutions when dealing with… CONTINUE READING
