Linear Time, Branching Time and Partial Order in Logics and Models for Concurrency
This volume is based on the "School/Workshop on Linear Time, Branching Time and Partial Order in Logics and Models for Concurrency" organized by the editors and held in the period May 30-June 3, 1988 at Noordwijkerhout, The Netherlands. The School/Workshop was an activity of the project REX - Research and Education in Concurrent Systems. The volume contains tutorials and research contributions to the three approaches - linear time, - branching time, and - partial order in semantics and proof theory of concurrent programs by the main specialists in this field. It promotes an in-depth understanding of the relative merits and disadvantages of these three approaches. An introduction to the recent literature on the subject is provided by the invited research contributions.
