WoTUG - The place for concurrent processes

Paper Details


Authors: Sampson, Adam T., Brown, Neil C.C.


As part of the CoSMoS project, we have implemented a variety of complex systems simulations using occam-pi. occam-pi is unusual in that it provides built-in support for synchronisation against a real-time clock, but simulations generally need to run faster or slower than real time. We describe the idea of a "clock" -- a new synchronisation primitive for process-oriented programming, similar to a barrier but extended with a sense of time. Clocks can be used to provide simulated time in a complex systems simulation, and can also be used to implement efficient phase synchronisation for controlling access to shared resources.
