Concurrent systems are typically large and complex, requiring long, development time and much labor. They are, therefore, prime candidates for simplification and automation of the design and programming process. Their major application areas include real time systems, operating systems and cooperative computation. New applications are emerging with the trends towards wide usage of personal computers connected in a network and towards use of parallel processing in supercomputer architectures.
