Action note: digitized 2010 committed to preserveSummary: Modelling the behaviour of concurrent and distributed systems has grown into one of the most challenging and vigorous research areas within theoretical computer science. The last decade has seen the emergence of three independent approaches to this problem, some of them capturing differences between systems that others ignore. The first one models a system by describing its execution runs, the second one by analysing the execution trees, and the third one models a system by describing the (in)dependencies and choices between the various events that may occur. Paradigmatic for these approaches are semantic domains with linear or branching elements, linear time and branching time temporal logic, and net theory. Although it seems that the more features a system captures the better, if one wants some measure of abstractness and parsimony, some of such features may be too detailed for a given level of description. This volume reviews these intrinsically different approaches and evaluates their relative advantages. It is based on the "School/Workshop On Linear Time, Branching Time and Partial Order in Logics and Models for Concurrency" organized by the editors and held in the period May 30 - June 3, 1988 at Noordwijkerhout, The Netherlands. The School/Workshop was an activity of the project REX - Research and Education in Concurrent Systems sponsored by the Netherlands NFI (Nationale Faciliteit Informatica) Programme. The meeting was organized under auspices of the EATCS and was furthermore supported by the Centre for Mathematics and Computer Science, the University of Leiden, and the Eindhoven University of Technology.
