A COSY Banker: Specification Highly Parallel and Distributed Resource Management

Lookup NU author(s):



A highly paralled strategy is described for the well known banker's problem. Efficiency is reached by distributing the tasks to be performed between a set of parallel activities and by avoiding whenever possible the time consuing situations and choice problems, which otherwise could slow down the parallel processes. The solution is described in the COSY notation in an easy, compact and structured way.
