The transition from sequential to parallel computation is an area of critical concern in today's computer technology, particularly in architecture, programming languages, systems, and artificial intelligence. This book addresses central issues in concurrency, and by producing both a syntactic definition and a denotational model of Hewitt's actor paradigma model of computation specifically aimed at constructing and analyzing distributed large-scale parallel systemsit substantially advances the understanding of parallel computation.
