This implies that ( post (d) < post (g) ∧ (l (d), l (g)) /∈ ser) or ( post (g) < post (d) ∧ (l (g), l (d)) /∈ ser).
Modelling Concurrency with Comtraces and Generalized Comtraces
Since post (d) 6= post (g) and post (a) ≤ post (d) ≤ post (b) and post (a) ≤ post (g) ≤ post (b), we also have post (a) < post (b).
Modelling Concurrency with Comtraces and Generalized Comtraces
Since post (d) < post (g) and post (a) ≤ post (d) ≤ post (b) and post (a) ≤ post (g) ≤ post (b), we have post (a) < post (b).
