A Distributed K-Mutual Exclusion Algorithm
This paper presents a token-based K-mutual exchsion algorithm. The algorithm uses K tokens and a dynamic forest structure for each token. This structure is used to forward token r...

Safe-Threads: A New Model for Object-Oriented Multi-Threaded Languages
Threads have been present in programming languages for some time now. However, they have a bad image among software developers because they lead to unreliable applications. Most o...

Inferential queueing and speculative push for reducing critical communication latencies
Communication latencies within critical sections constitute a major bottleneck in some classes of emerging parallel workloads. In this paper, we argue for the use of Inferentially...

A Dynamic Group Mutual Exclusion Algorithm Using Surrogate-Quorums
The group mutual exclusion problem extends the traditional mutual exclusion problem by associating a type with each critical section. In this problem, processes requesting critica...

Transactional memory for smalltalk
Concurrency control in Smalltalk is based on locks and is therefore notoriously diļ¬ƒcult to use. Even though some implementations provide high-level constructs, these add complexi...

Detecting and tolerating asymmetric races
Because data races represent a hard-to-manage class of errors in concurrent programs, numerous approaches to detect them have been proposed and evaluated. We specifically consider...
