Multiversion Conflict Notion for Transactional Memory Systems

Priyanka Kumar Sathya Peri
Abstract: In recent years, Software Transactional Memory systems (STMs) have garnered significant interest as an elegant alternative for addressing concurrency issues in memory. STM systems take optimistic approach. Multiple transactions are allowed to execute concurrently. On completion, each transaction is validated and if any inconsistency is observed it is aborted. Otherwise it is allowed to commit. In databases a class of histories called as conflict-serializability (CSR) based on the notion of conflicts have been identified ...
