This book provides a hands-on introduction to concurrent programming principles and techniques. Pascal FC (Functionally Concurrent), a teaching version of the Pascal language available from the authors, is used to illustrate the main techniques used in the concurrency models. Once programmers have grasped the concepts, a smooth transition is made to more advanced theoretical material.
