Description

Principles of Concurrent and Distributed Programming provides an introduction to concurrent programming focusing on general principles and not on specific systems. 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.

Final Cover Copy Ben-Ari 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: O Focuses on algorithmic "principles "rather than language syntax; O Emphasizes the use of the Spin model checker for modeling concurrent systems and verifying program correctness; O Explains the implementation of concurrency in the Java and Ada languages. O 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. About the Author Mordechai (Moti) Ben-Ari is an Associate Professor in the Department of Science Teaching at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel.
