Advanced contention management for dynamic software transactional memory
The obstruction-free Dynamic Software Transactional Memory (DSTM) system of Herlihy et al. allows only one transaction at a time to acquire an object for writing. Should a second ...

Software transactional memory for dynamic-sized data structures
We propose a new form of software transactional memory (STM) designed to support dynamic-sized data structures, and we describe a novel non-blocking implementation. The non-blocki...

An efficient software transactional memory using commit-time invalidation
To improve the performance of transactional memory (TM), researchers have found many eager and lazy optimizations for conflict detection, the process of determining if transaction...

A comprehensive strategy for contention management in software transactional memory
In Software Transactional Memory (STM), contention management refers to the mechanisms used to ensure forward progress-to avoid livelock and starvation, and to promote throughput ...

Lightweight, robust adaptivity for software transactional memory
When a program uses Software Transactional Memory (STM) to synchronize accesses to shared memory, the performance often depends on which STM implementation is used. Implementation...
