About this Textbook

In this book, a programming model is developed that addresses the fundamental issues of "large-scale programming," unifying several concepts from database theory, object-oriented programming and designs of reactive systems. The model and the associated theory have been christened "Seuss." The major goal of Seuss is to simplify multiprogramming. To this end, we separate the concern of concurrent implementation from the core program design problem. A program execution is understood as a single thread of control - sequential executions of actions that are chosen according to some scheduling policy - yet program implementation permits concurrent executions of multiple threads. As a consequence, it is possible to reason about the properties of a program from its single execution thread, whereas an implementation may exploit the inherent concurrency for efficient execution.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Jayadev Misras ‘Discipline of Multiprogramming – Programming Theory for Distributed Applications’ wants to contribute theories and design principles to enhance productivity in specification, abstraction and modularization. … Most chapters have a large number of examples, contain bibliographic notes and a lot of exercises with solutions. The book concludes with an appendix about elementary logic and algebra, a reference list and an index." (Christoph Meinel, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 999, 2002)
