Abstract : Concurrent programming is getting popular through the use of Java threads for instance. On the other hand sequential programmers make a sparse use of formal techniques like assertions and proof to produce the code. It is well known that concurrent programs are much more difficult to produce right than the sequential one. Testing is of poor help as we are not sure to replay testing conditions and we are subject to race conditions whose consequence is that a program may runon a machine but not on another one. Model checking appeared efficient and easy to make use in fixing an error of synchronization.
