The authors define a programming environment, Parallel Objects (PO), where any entity is an object capable of autonomous execution. A high degree of parallelism is so determined. Moreover, PO allows concurrency within a single object. The user can specify the policy for the synchronization between internal activities. This policy is expressed using the canonical object tool of combination of methods. PO is an attempt to overcome the intrinsic sequentialization within an object, which is one of the major limits of several available implementations of the object model.
