Deterministic Behavioural Models for Concurrency

Sassone, V., Nielsen, M. and Winskel, G. (1993) Deterministic Behavioural Models for Concurrency At 18th International Symposium on the Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science, MFCS '93.. , pp. 682-692.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


This paper offers three candidates for a deterministic, noninterleaving, behaviour model which generalizes Hoare traces to the noninterleaving situation. The three models are all proved equivalent in the rather strong sense of being equivalent as categories. The models are: deterministic labelled event structures, generalized trace languages in which the independence relation is context-dependent, and deterministic languages of pomsets.
