Synopsis

In this book, a programming model is developed that addresses the fundamental issues of 'large-scale programming'. The approach unifies several concepts from database theory, object-oriented programming and designs of reactive systems. The model and the associated theory has been christened "Seuss." The major goal of Seuss is to simplify multiprogramming. To this end, the concern of concurrent implementation is separated from the core program design problem. A program execution is understood as a single thread of control - sequential executions of actions that are chosen according to some scheduling policy. As a consequence, it is possible to reason about the properties of a program from its single execution thread.
