A new synchronization mechanism -forcing expression- is proposed. Forcing expressions describe the behavior of critical sections by denoting the allowable combinations of processes and data concerning the sections. and cooperation problems can be treated equally be forcing expressions. Forcing expressions are high level synchronbation mechanisms but can be implemented by simpler synchronization primitives such as .binary semaphore cause/await and enq/deq operations. The definition and the implementation details of forcing expressions are described.
