Module Number: 11884 - Phase-out Module
Module Title:Introduction into Concurrency
  Einführung in die Nebenläufigkeit
Department: Faculty 1 - Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology
Responsible Staff Member:
  • Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Lambers, Leen
Language of Teaching / Examination:English
Duration:1 semester
Frequency of Offer: Each winter semester even year
Credits: 8
Learning Outcome:Students acquire a general understanding of Petri net theory and its basic notions and gain a deeper understanding of the foundations of concurrent systems using Petri net models. Furthermore, students learn how Petri net models can be used to systematically construct concurrent software.
  • Foundations: Petri nets for the modelling of causality, and thus for the graphic description of concurrency, synchronisation and communication
  • Typical language constructs for programming of concurrency
  • Standard problems of mutual exclusion and event synchronisation
Recommended Prerequisites:Knowledge in object-oriented programming, software technology, foundations.

Mandatory Prerequisites:No successful participation in module 12348 Einführung in die Nebenläufigkeit.
Forms of Teaching and Proportion:
  • Lecture / 4 Hours per Week per Semester
  • Exercise / 2 Hours per Week per Semester
  • Self organised studies / 150 Hours
Teaching Materials and Literature:Will be provided at the beginnning of the course.
