Bidirectional message-passing (bi-io), a novel symmetric communication mechanism for concurrent processes, is introduced and developed. The mechanism is symmetric in the sense that, in one atomic action, a message is transmitted in each direction between two processes. For some applications (tree structure, systolic arrays) this method is shown to have several advantages over conventional synch
