Reader-Writer Exclusion Supporting Upgrade and Downgrade with Starvation Freedom
Matthew Elkherj
Dartmouth TR2011-684

Abstract:

In this thesis we give a constant Remote-Memory-Reference (on CC systems) reader-writer exclusion algorithm supporting upgrade and downgrade, built from a reader-writer exclusion algorithm by Jayanti and Liu. The algorithm is starvation-free, and allows for repeated upgrades and downgrades.

Note: Senior Honors Thesis Advisor: Prasad Jayanti
