This book presents the fundamentals of concurrency theory with clarity and rigor. The authors start with the semantic structure, namely labelled transition systems, which provides us with the means and the tools to express processes, to compose them, and to prove properties they enjoy. The rest of the book relies on Milner's Calculus of Communicating Systems, tailored versions of which are used to study various notions of equality between systems, and to investigate in detail the expressive power of the models considered. The authors proceed from very basic results to increasingly complex issues, with many examples and exercises that help to reveal the many subtleties of the topic. The book is suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in computer science and engineering, and scientists engaged with theories of concurrency.
Roberto Gorrieri is a professor of computer science of the University of Bologna. His interests include concurrency and the foundations of security analysis and design. Cristian Versari is an assistant professor of computer science at the Laboratoire d'Informatique Fondamentale de Lille (LIFL). His interests include concurrent languages and the computational modelling of biological systems.
