WoTUG - The place for concurrent processes

Paper Details

A concurrent approach to the Towers of Hanoi

Authors: Crowe, W. D., Strain-Clark, P. E. D.


The tower of Hanoi problem has long been known to have a closed (ie non-recursive) solution. In this paper we analyse two approaches to this solution which involve concurrency. This is not an end in itself, but serves to introduce the main ideas and notations of CAP (Communicating Asynchronous Processes) - a revision of CSP which the authors have used successfully to develop correct Occam programs. In turn, CAP is part of a wider development method (ODM) which is being studied with the intention of prototyping software tools to assist developers of concurrent software.
