Abstract: The authors define a concurrency measure of a distributed computation which is based an the number of its consistent cuts. The authors prove that counting consistent cuts take into account the non-transitivity of the concurrency relation, and they give a geometric interpretation of using the clock designed by Fidge and Mattern for characterizing concurrency between two events.
