Summary
This book is devoted to difficult parts of concurrent programming: synchronization concepts, techniques and principles when the cooperating entities are asynchronous, communicate through a shared memory, and may experience failures. Key features include: lock-based synchronization (mutual exclusion, semaphores, monitors, path expressions); introductions to the atomicity consistency criterion and mutex-freedom and associated progress conditions such as obstruction-freedom and wait-freedom; Lamport's hierarchy of safe, regular and atomic registers and associated wait-free constructions; wait-free constructions of concurrent objects (queues, stacks, weak counters, snapshot objects, renaming objects, etc.); 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 objects. --
