Concurrent Programming: Algorithms, Principles, and by Michel Raynal

By Michel Raynal

The appearance of recent architectures and computing structures signifies that synchronization and concurrent computing are one of the most vital issues in computing technological know-how. Concurrent courses are made of cooperating entities -- processors, techniques, brokers, friends, sensors -- and synchronization is the set of innovations, principles and mechanisms that let them to coordinate their neighborhood computations as a way to observe a standard job. This e-book is dedicated to the main tricky a part of concurrent programming, particularly synchronization ideas, innovations and rules while the cooperating entities are asynchronous, speak via a shared reminiscence, and will event mess ups. Synchronization isn't any longer a collection of methods yet, as a result of learn ends up in contemporary many years, it is based at the present time on sane clinical foundations as defined during this book.

In this publication the writer explains synchronization and the implementation of concurrent items, proposing in a uniform and complete approach the most important theoretical and sensible result of the previous 30 years. one of the key good points of the ebook are a brand new examine lock-based synchronization (mutual exclusion, semaphores, screens, direction expressions); an creation to the atomicity consistency criterion and its houses and a selected bankruptcy on transactional reminiscence; an creation to mutex-freedom and linked development stipulations reminiscent of obstruction-freedom and wait-freedom; a presentation of Lamport's hierarchy of secure, commonplace and atomic registers and linked wait-free structures; an outline of various wait-free structures of concurrent gadgets (queues, stacks, susceptible counters, photograph gadgets, renaming items, etc.); a presentation of the computability strength of concurrent items together with the notions of common development, consensus quantity and the linked Herlihy's hierarchy; and a survey of failure detector-based buildings of consensus objects.

The booklet is acceptable for complex undergraduate scholars and graduate scholars in machine technological know-how or desktop engineering, graduate scholars in arithmetic attracted to the rules of procedure synchronization, and practitioners and engineers who have to produce right concurrent software program. The reader must have a simple wisdom of algorithms and working platforms.

Example text

An atomic register can be single-writer/single-reader (SWSR)—the reader and the writer being distinct processes—or single-writer/multi-reader (SWMR), or multiwriter/multi-reader (MWMR) . We assume that a register is able to contain any value. ) An example An execution of a MWMR atomic register accessed by three processes p1 , p2 , and p3 is depicted in Fig. 1 using a classical space-time diagram. read() → v means that the corresponding read operation returns the value v. read() → 2. write(2) was executed before Fig.

4 satisfies mutual exclusion and bounded bypass (where the bound is f (n) = 1). Preliminary remark for the proof The reasoning is based on the fact that the three registers FLAG[i], FLAG[ j], and AFTER_YOU are atomic. As we have seen when presenting the atomicity concept (Sect. 1), this allows us to reason as if at most one read or write operation on any of these registers occurs at a time. Proof Proof of the mutual exclusion property. Let us assume by contradiction that both pi and p j are inside the critical section.

At most one process obtains the value commit. An n-process concurrency-abortable algorithm Such an algorithm is described in Fig. 12. As in the previous algorithms, it assumes that all the processes have distinct identities, but differently from them, the number n of processes can be arbitrary and remains unknown to the processes. This algorithm uses two MWMR atomic registers denoted X and Y . The register X contains a process identity (its initial value being arbitrary). The register Y contains a process identity or the default value ⊥ (which is its initial value).
