  The logical view on continuous Petri nets
Blondin M., Finkel A., Haase C., Haddad S.  ACM Transactions on Computational Logic 18(3): 1-28, 2017. Type: Article

The reachability problem for standard Petri nets is EXPSPACE hard, and the coverability problem is EXPSPACE complete. However, more efficient algorithms exist for variants of the standard nets. Continuous Petri nets are such a variant that allows ...

  The communication-hiding pipelined BiCGstab method for the parallel solution of large unsymmetric linear systems
Cools S., Vanroose W.  Parallel Computing 651-20, 2017. Type: Article

In the huge matrices used in high-performance computing (HPC), there exist patterns and relations among the members of the matrix that can be utilized to process the matrices in a more efficient way. Most of the discussions concerned with huge mat...

  Decidability and complexity for quiescent consistency
Dongol B., Hierons R.  LICS 2016 (Proceedings of the 31st Annual ACM/IEEE Symposium on Logic in Computer Science, New York, NY,  Jul 5-8, 2016) 116-125, 2016. Type: Proceedings

Quiescent consistency is a correctness constraint for concurrent objects that attempts to improve concurrent-execution performance by accepting a broader range of possible operation sequences than do, for example, linearizability or sequential con...

  Reactive messaging patterns with the actor model: applications and integration in Scala and Akka
Vernon V.,  Addison-Wesley Professional, New York, NY, 2015. 480 pp. Type: Book (978-0-133846-83-6)

In the 1980s, when my academic career started as a researcher into functional and actor programming languages, we were confident that by the turn of the millennium these would be the languages in standard use in industry. It was disappointing to f...

  Fundamentals of parallel multicore architecture
Solihin Y.,  Chapman & Hall/CRC, Boca Raton, FL, 2016. 494 pp. Type: Book (978-1-482211-18-4), Reviews: (2 of 2)

Multicore is the default configuration in computing systems today, from smartphones to desktops and servers. Usually independent jobs are done in parallel on these cores, simplifying parallel programming challenges. To achieve meaningful returns f...

  Java threads and the concurrency utilities
Friesen J.,  Apress, Berkeley, CA, 2015. 200 pp. Type: Book (978-1-484216-99-6)

Concurrency is one of the most intrinsic aspects in computer programming and programming languages; Java is not an exception. Handling concurrent threads properly and efficiently requires not only a complete understanding of the problem or context...

  Directed algebraic topology and concurrency
Fajstrup L., Goubault E., Haucourt E., Mimram S., Raussen M.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2016. 167 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319153-97-1)

Introducing the use of ideas from algebraic topology in the study of concurrency is the primary contribution of this book. The basic idea is as follows: suppose that one has a collection of processes that are to run concurrently and that each proc...
