The advent of new architectures and computing Platforms Means That Synchronization And Concurrent Computing means that synchronization and concurrent computing among the most important topics in computing science Concurrent programs are made up computing among the most important topics in computing science Concurrent programs are made up cooperating entities processors processes agents peers sensors and synchronization is the set of concepts ules and mechanisms that allow them to coordinate their local computations in order to ealize a common task This book is devoted to the most difficult part of concurrent programming namely synchronization concepts techniues and principles when the cooperating entities are asynchronous communicate through a shared memory and may experience failures Synchronization is no longer a set of tricks but due to esearch esults in ecent decades it ,

Elies today on sane scientific foundations as explained in this bookIn this #Book The Author Explains #the author explains and the implementation of concurrent objects presenting in a uniform and comprehensive way the major theoretical and practical esults of the past 30 years Among the key features of the book the major theoretical and practical esults of the past 30 years Among the key features of the book a new look at lock based synchronization mutual exclusion semaphores monitors path expressions; an introduction to the atomicity consistency criterion and its properties and a specific chapter on transactional memory; an introduction to mutex freedom and associated progress conditions such as obstruction freedom and wait freedom; a presentation of Lamport's hierarchy of safe egular and atomic egisters and associated
"Wait Free Construct.  "
free construct. Ions; a description of numerous wait free constructions of concurrent objects ueues stacks weak counters snapshot objects enaming objects etc; a presentation of the computability power of concurrent objects including the notions of universal construction consensus number and the associated Herlihy's hierarchy; and a survey of failure detector based constructions of consensus objectsThe book is suitable for advanced undergraduate students and graduate students in computer science or computer engineering graduate students in mathematics interested undergraduate students and graduate students in computer science or computer engineering graduate students in mathematics interested the foundations of process synchronization and practitioners and engineers who need to produce correct
