Book Description
SR (Synchronizing Resources) is a powerful and flexible language for concurrent programming. With its explicit mechanisms and concurrency, communication, and synchronization, programmers can easily learn to write programs for both shared- and distributed-memory applications and machines.This book, written by the language designers, provides a complete introduction to SR and gives the reader the tools for learning about and experimenting with concurrency. Features *Provides an accessible, clear introduction to SR by the language designers. *Teaches practical techniques through numerous realistic examples of parallel and distributed programming problems. *Examines 'classic' concurrent programming problems as well as many important parallel and distributed programming problems. *Illustrates trade-offs between language mechanisms to help the reader understand and make optimum design decisions *Reinforces key points with numerous end-of-chapter exercises *Includes six appendices that summarize the language for quick reference, show how to develop and execute programs, and describe the implementation.The SR language implementation is available, free, from the SR Project, University of Arizona, at ftp://cs. 0805300880B04062001

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent language guide, October 23, 2000
Francois Kilchoer "fkilc" (Gumefens Switzerland) - See all my reviews
This review is from: SR Programming Language: Concurrency Pract (Paperback)
This book contains all you need to know about this concurrent programming language. It is a simple language, yet quite powerful. The examples given in the book start out nice and easy, but yet there are more complex ones as well that give a good idea on how to best use the language.
I would highly recommend this book, *especially* to those who are interested in concurrent programming in general. This book is a quasi *must* supplement to Andrew's "Concurrent Programming" book.
As I teach concurrent programming, I think that this book and the companion are the best for learning and practicing concurrent programming.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cover looks different than pictured, not sure there are other differences, August 19, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: SR Programming Language: Concurrency Pract (Paperback)
I received the book on time, through Amazon Prime. However, the book that I received had a white cover with the name of the book, names of the authors, and other written details. There weren't any graphics on the cover, which was what's depicted in the picture of the book on the website. It looks as though the original cover was damaged and a generic cover was put on the book that I received, or I received a copy of the printed version. The quality of the paper on the cover that I received felt cheap. I'm not sure if there are any other changes inside the book. The description and picture on should make it clear that the copy sent may look different than pictured, and of any other differences there may be.
