Application of concurrency to system design; proceedings.


Application of concurrency Operations that are performed simultaneously within the computer. For example, dual-core CPUs provide complete overlapping of two independent processes. See dual core, hyperthreading, multiprocessing, multitasking, multithreading, SMP and MPP.

Twenty-eight papers from the June 2006 conference compare different methods for designing and analyzing complex concurrent hardware and software systems. The ten sessions address asynchronous Refers to events that are not synchronized, or coordinated, in time. The following are considered asynchronous operations. The interval between transmitting A and B is not the same as between B and C. The ability to initiate a transmission at either end.  and synchronous systems, scheduling, timed systems, algorithms, stochastic models Stochastic models

Liability-matching models that assume that the liability payments and the asset cash flows are uncertain. Related: Deterministic models.
, model checking, systems on chips, algebraic approaches, and semantics. Topics include throughput analysis of synchronous data Synchronous data

Information available at the same time. To test option-pricing models, the price of the option and of the underlying should be synchronous and reflect the same moment in the market.
