Although preemptive concurrency models are dominant for multi-threaded concurrency, they may be criticized for the complexity of reasoning because of the implicit context switches. The actor model and cooperative concurrency models have regained attention as they encapsulate the thread of control. In this paper, we formalize a continuation-based compilation of cooperative multitasking for a simple language and prove its correctness.
