Constraints meet concurrency
Constraint-based execution and concurrency are valuable allies, but they are not natural ones. This book examines ways in which constraints and concurrency can be brought into harmony. The results reported show how constraints can be trimmed for potentially better concurrent execution, and how concurrency can be exploited... more
The race to build the hydrogen bomb was accelerated by von Neumann’s desire to build a computer, and the push to build von Neumann’s computer was accelerated by the race to build a hydrogen bomb... more
