On interprocess communication
- 441 Downloads
Interprocess communication is studied without assuming any lower-level communication primitives. Three classes of communication registers are considered, and several constructions are given for implementing one class of register with a weaker class. The formalism developed in Part I is used in proving the correctness of these constructions.
