A Classification of Models for Concurrency

Sassone, V., Nielsen, M. and Winskel, G. (1993) A Classification of Models for Concurrency At 4th International Conference on Concurrency Theory, CONCUR '93.. , pp. 82-96.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Models for concurrency can be classified with respect to the three relevant parameters: behaviour/system, interleaving/noninterleaving, linear/branching time. When modelling a process, a choice concerning such parameters corresponds to choosing the level of abstraction of the resulting semantics. The classifications are formalised through the medium of category theory.
