Concurrent computing is gaining ground in interest as it becomes increasingly feasible to implement distributed computing across networks of workstations. This book, by one of the subject's leading figures, provides a comprehensive survey of the subject beginning with proposotional logic and concluding with concurrent programming. It is based on graduate courses taught at Cornell University and is designed to be used as a graduate text. There are exercises at the end of each chapter to extend and illustrate the main themes covered. Professor Schneier emphasizes the use of formal methods and assertional reasoning using notation and paradigms drawn from programming to drive the exposition. As a result, all those interested in studying concurrent computing will find this to be an invaluable approach to the subject.
