SUMMARY

Rendezvous-based synchronization of concurrent autonomous entities is typically described in centric form distributed among the entities. An alternative associative form is also rendezvous-based but shared between entities. This abstraction from collaboration is a descriptive unit and makes synchronization of entities simple and implicit. Copyright © 2011 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
