Abstract

Tasks are entities that may operate in parallel. Parallel tasks may be implemented on multicomputers, multiprocessors, or with interleaved execution on a single processor. Tasks may have entries which may be called by other tasks. Synchronization is achieved by rendezvous between a task issuing an entry call and a task accepting the call. Entries are also the principal means of communication between tasks.
