I am very new to Erlang, and just read that Erlang style process is done
with something similar to coroutine + preemptive scheduling[1]. So I am
interested to know how Erlang schedule process without the user inserting
code like coroutine.yield() in the function created. Is there any document
detail about this (I find some discussion like [2] but that doesn't give me
a clear blueprint)? Or which part of source code should I look into?

I appreciate any suggestions.
