By way of the twenty-first century the realm used to be drowning in its personal inhabitants. an answer needed to be came upon quickly--and it was once, in 'gravi-power'. really good, never-ending resource of power--only the scientists knew that its use used to be lowering the Earth's distance from the sunlight at a deadly fee. but when one other planet's gravi-power may perhaps harnessed.

We therefore propose two ways to loosen this requirement, thereby building a hierarchy of classes of asynchronous nets. Both require that all places reside on different locations, but a transition may be co-located with one of its preplaces. The symmetrically asynchronous interaction pattern allows this only for transitions with a single preplace, whereas in the asymmetrically asynchronous interaction pattern any transition may be co-located with one of its preplaces. Since two preplaces can never be co-located, this breaks the symmetry between the preplaces of a transition; an implementor of a net has to choose at most one preplace for every transition, and co-locate the transition with it.
He defines asynchronous implementations of such a system by composing it with in- and output queues, and then characterises the systems that are behaviourally equivalent to their asynchronous implementations. The main difference with our approach is that we focus on asynchrony within a system, whereas Selinger focusses on the asynchronous nature of the communications of a system with the outside world. Also in hardware design it is an intriguing quest to use interaction mechanisms which do not rely on a global clock, in order to gain performance.
