This paper presents adaptations of the Hoare triple for reasoning about concurrent programs. The rules for the Hoare triple, familiar to programmers from their experience with sequential programming, can be applied to develop proofs of concurrent programs as well. The basis for the adaptations of the Hoare triple is temporal logic.
