In concurrent object models, objects encapsulate local state, schedule local processes, interact via asynchronous method calls, and methods of different objects are executed concurrently. In this paper, we introduce a compositional trace semantics for concurrent objects and provide an axiomatic characterization of the general properties of reachable traces, that is, traces that can be generated by a concurrent object program. The main result of this paper is a soundness and completeness proof of the axiomatic characterization.
