BeschreibungThis book gives applications of the theory of process algebra, or Algebra of Communicating Processes (ACP), that is the study of concurrent or communicating processes studied using an algebraic framework. The approach is axiomatic; the authors consider structures that are some set of mostly equational axioms, which are equipped with several operators. Thus the term 'algebra' is used in the model-theoretic sense. The axiomatic approach enables one to organize the field of process theories. The theory is applied systematically to a number of situations, including systolic algorithms, semantics of an object-oriented language, and protocols. It will be welcomed by computer scientists working in parallel programming.
