Principles of Concurrent and

Distributed Programming

2nd Edition

 

M. Ben-Ari

 

The latest edition of a classic text from a winner of the ACM/SIGCSE

Award for Outstanding Contribution to Computer Science Education.

         

Software today is inherently concurrent or distributed – from event-based GUI designs to operating and real-time systems to Internet applications. The new edition of this classic introduction to concurrency has been completely revised in view of the growing importance of concurrency

constructs embedded in programming languages and of formal methods

such as model checking that are widely used in industry.

 

The 2nd edition:

 

Ø     Focuses on algorithmic principles rather than language syntax;

Ø     Emphasizes the use of the Spin model checker for modeling concurrent systems and verifying program correctness;

Ø     Explains the implementation of concurrency in the Java and Ada languages.

Ø     Facilitates lab work with software tools for learning concurrent and distributed programming.

 

Check out the companion website for the book at www.pearson.co.uk/ben-ari  to find additional resources for both students and instructors, including source code in various languages for the programs in the book, answers to the exercises, and slides for all diagrams, algorithms and programs.
