Abstract : The way activity in a system proceeds is that events occur as a result of some conditions and lead to some new conditions which make other events possible. Often it is necessary to coordinate such events to ensure proper behavior. Coordination nets for representing such coordinations and physically realizable structues for enforcing such coordinations are presented. These structures are modular and can be mechanically derived from the coordination nets. Coordinations involved in concurrent management of resources are also discussed. (Author)
