Safe optimisations for shared-memory concurrent programs
Current proposals for concurrent shared-memory languages, including C++ and C, provide sequential consistency only for programs without data races (the DRF guarantee). While the i...

A Methodological Construction of an Efficient Sequentially Consistent Distributed Shared Memory
A concurrent object is an object that can be concurrently accessed by several processes. Sequential consistency is a consistency criterion for such objects. Informally, it states ...

Refinement verification of the lazy caching algorithm
The lazy caching algorithm of Afek, Brown, and Merrit (1993) is a protocol that allows the use of local caches with delayed updates. It results in a memory model that is not atomi...

Fork Sequential Consistency is Blocking
We consider an untrusted server storing shared data on behalf of clients. We show that no storage access protocol can on the one hand preserve sequential consistency and wait-free...

A Mechanism for Sequential Consistency in a Distributed Objects System
This paper presents a new protocol for ensuring sequential consistency in a distributed objects system. The protocol is efficient and simple. In addition to providing a high-level...

Performance Evaluation of Memory Consistency Models for Shared Memory Multiprocessors
The memory consistency model supported by a multiprocessor architecture determines the amount of buffering and pipelining that may be used to hide or reduce the latency of memory ...

Automatic Verification of Sequential Consistency for Unbounded Addresses and Data Values
Sequential consistency is the archetypal correctness condition for the memory protocols of shared-memory multiprocessors. Typically, such protocols are parameterized by the number ...

Implementing Sequential Consistency in Cache-Based Systems
A model for shared-memory systems commonly (and often implicitly) assumed by programmers is that of sequential consistency. For implementing sequential consistency in a cache-base...

Lamport Clocks: Verifying a Directory Cache-Coherence Protocol
Modern shared-memory multiprocessors use complex memory system implementations that include a variety of non-trivial and interacting optimizations. More time is spent in verifying...
