 Bill Roscoe: The Theory and Practice of Concurrency, revised edition, Prentice Hall, 2005, also available online. In my most recent project I have lots of fun with threads, concurrency and testing. If light-weight, they can be a highly scalable approach to concurrency.  Robin Milner: Communication and Concurrency, Prentice Hall, 1989. In order to communicate, typically we serialize the message contents and send to the subscriber. Concurrency in OO languages like Java is full of synchronized keywords to access shared data structures, but in the actor model the communication channels between lines of code belonging to different processes is explicit. In Silverlight communication is asynchronous to avoid blocking the UI thread of the browser. You may have noticed that up to this point I have only talked about concurrency. Map/reduce, concurrency and communications were among key concepts that consistently popped up during OSCON's Emerging Languages Camp. Writing asynchronous code in C# or VB. I am again amazed how asynchronous communication and concurrency can hurt your brain during testing. Now let's focus on this issue, which has articles on both human-to-machine (H2M) and machine-to-machine (M2M) communication. Simplifying Silverlight Concurrency with F# Asynchronous Programming. More specifically the communication between processes in concurrent languages. Topics as In this article, he defines concurrency and covers some concurrency-related pitfalls. Demand monitors support implicit bi-directional communication, logical concurrency, anticipation, and open extension. You don't need to give up mutable state, which makes sense since mutable state isn't a problem for concurrency as long as it's private to a thread. Is particularly simple given that no inter-thread communication is necessary (beyond that which is already provided by the solution). Fortunately, many concurrency problems can be cast as producer-consumer problems.
