Web Abstract

The objective of this project is to develop an efficient software framework for "Developing Reliable Multi-threaded Applications for Multi-Core Architectures". The software framework will manage all the shared memory for the programmer and remove the burden of concurrency control. In addition to these desirable features, the proposed software will not have any undesirable side-effects. Further, the software developed will have a notion of progress incorporated into it. We plan to demonstrate the effectiveness of the software framework by theoretically showing its correctness as well developing a mini-prototype for linux system.

The software framework will be based on the notion of Software Transactional Memory Sysmtes (STMs). STMs approach has garnered significant interest as an elegant alternative for developing parallel programs. STMs address many of the shortcomings of lock based systems and do not have undesirable side-effects.
