A Complexity-Based Hierarchy for Multiprocessor Synchronization: [Extended Abstract]
PODC, pp. 289-298, 2016.
For many years, Herlihy's elegant computability based Consensus Hierarchy has been our best explanation of the relative power of various types of multiprocessor synchronization objects when used in deterministic algorithms. However, key to this hierarchy is treating these instructions as distinct objects, an approach that is far from the ...More
