Concurrency The concept of concurrency means merely the tendency or ability for things to happen at the same time in a system. Additionally, concurrency in software systems occurs in two significant aspects such as being able to detect and more so respond to external events that happen in a random order and eventually guaranteeing that these events are answered to in some minimum required interval[Mat171]. Additionally, it is worthwhile to note that concurrency plays a significant role in particular to systems that have to react to outside occasions in real-time to meet specific hard deadlines. Moreover, if each of the concurrent activities emerged independently, it would be straightforward as separate programs would be created to deal with each of them. Therefore, the interaction of various events creates a significant challenge in designing of parallel systems since whenever parallel activity interacts some coordination is needed.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
