Jayadev Misra's A Discipline of Multiprogramming: Programming Theory for PDF

By Jayadev Misra

During this ebook, a programming version is constructed that addresses the elemental problems with 'large-scale programming'. The procedure unifies numerous recommendations from database concept, object-oriented programming and designs of reactive platforms. The version and the linked conception has been christened "Seuss." the foremost aim of Seuss is to simplify multiprogramming. To this finish, the fear of concurrent implementation is separated from the middle application layout challenge. A application execution is known as a unmarried thread of keep watch over - sequential executions of activities which are selected in keeping with a few scheduling coverage. for this reason, it truly is attainable to cause concerning the houses of a application from its unmarried execution thread.

Hence, the entire algorithm is implemented in O(n 2 ) time. , boxes, whose interactions with their environments are minimal. Typically, the environment sets the values of certain shared variables, simulating a message send or a method call; a box reads the shared variable values and resets them to simulate return of values and indicate the completion of its computation. The emphasis in this chapter has been on the computational aspects, for which invariants and fixed points provide the logical foundation.

The ids of programs, cats, and boxes are simple identifiers. The parameters of a cat or box can be ordinary variables, cats or boxes (see program MutualExclusionl on page 47 for an example of cat declaration with parameters) . A cat consists of zero or more variable declarations followed by procedure declarations. A box is an instance of a cat. We adopt the convention that several boxes may be instantiated under one "box" declaration. Variables are declared and initialized in a cat as in traditional programming languages.

3 Properties of Action Systems 17 As an example, consider a program that consists of the following box only. box small integer x, y = 0,0; X + 1 +1 x < y -t x:= ~ y:= max(x,y) end {small} We claim that x ::; y is an invariant for this program. We have initially x =0 1\ Y =0 which implies x ::; y. We can show that {x ::; Y 1\ x < y} x:= X + 1 {x::; y} y:= max(x,y) +1 {x::; y} {x::; y} The notion of invariant is perhaps the most important foundational concept in this book. It is essential for writing specifications and designing programs.
