Revised and updated with improvements conceived in parallel programming courses, The Art of Multiprocessor Programming is an authoritative guide to multicore programming. It introduces a higher level set of software development skills than that needed for efficient single-core programming. This book provides comprehensive coverage of the new principles, algorithms, and tools necessary for effective multiprocessor programming. Students and professionals alike will benefit from thorough coverage of key multiprocessor programming issues. Students in multiprocessor and multicore programming courses and engineers working with multiprocessor and multicore systems. Maurice Herlihy received an A.
Information on these features is easy to come by, but learning to apply them effectively Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Today's Web-enabled deluge of electronic data calls for automated methods of data analysis. Machine learning provides these, developing methods that can automatically detect patterns in data and then use the uncovered patterns to predict future data.
This textbook offers a comprehensive O'Reilly Media, In this comprehensive guide, author and Java expert Scott Oaks takes the approach that anyone who works with Java should be equally adept at understanding how code behaves in the JVM, as well as the tunings likely to help its performance.

Mutual Exclusion 2. Concurrent Objects 3. Note: I initially solved this assignment by looking only at the relative se- quential fractions s, s0 , which made the involved formulas much simpler but did not take into account that the parallel portion of the program did not change. For each question, either sketch a proof, or display an execution where it fails.
Does this protocol satisfy mutual exclusion? Mutual Exclusion Critical sections of different threads do not overlap.
Since busy is never reset to false, this is a contradiction. Therefore the protocol must satisfy mutual exclusion. Is this protocol starvation-free? Is this protocol deadlock-free? The Flaky lock is neither starvation-free nor deadlock free. The definitions are as follows: Freedom from Deadlock: If some thread attempts to acquire the lock, then some thread will succeed in acquiring the lock.
Freedom from Starvation: Every thread that attempts to acquire the lock even- tually succeeds. Every call to lock eventually returns.
This property is some- times called lockout freedom. Suppose two threads A and B call lock and run in lock-step until they both reach line Without loss of generality, we can assume that B went last, and turn is therefore set to B. If A now continues, it reads turn! If we let B reach line 11 at this moment, it also reads turn!
We have ended up with both threads stuck in an endless loop, and neither thread ever aquiring the lock. All other threads are also blocked since busy is set to true. However, between levels it is very possible for other threads to skip ahead.
If A is now paused for some reason for example scheduling , every other thread which has successfully completed level 1 may overtake A. They claim that if the base Lock class provides mutual exclusion and is starvation-free, so does the FastPath lock, but it can be acquired in a constant number of steps in the absence of contention.
Sketch an argument why they are right, or give a counterexample. We will provide a counterexample, in which both threads A and B are able to enter the critical section.
Suppose both A and B run until line 8.
B is therefore able to enter the critical section without consulting the inner lock. Now we will allow A to continue. Since the inner lock has not been locked by B, A is also able to enter the critical section. With two threads in the critical section, the property of mutual exclusion is contradicted.
