The predominant thread-based approach to concurrent programming is bug-prone, difficult to reason about, and does not scale well to large numbers of processors. Sieves provide a simple way of adding deterministic declarative concurrency to imperative programming languages. Sieve programs have a straightforward semantics, are not significantly more difficult to reason about than sequential imperative programs, and should scale to large numbers of processors as well as different processor
