Abstract: Software Transactional Memory Systems (STM) are a promising alternative to lock based systems for concurrency control in shared memory systems. In multiversion STM systems, each write on a transaction object produces a new version of that object. The advantage obtained by storing multiple versions is that one can ensure that read operations do not fail. Opacity is a commonly used correctness criterion for STM systems. Multi-Version permissive STM system never aborts a read-only transaction. Although many multi-version ...
