Chores: enhanced run-time support for shared-memory parallel computing
John Jahorjan, Derek L. Eager
Pages: 1-32
DOI: 10.1145/151250.151251
Parallel computing is increasingly important in the solution of large-scale numerical problems. The difficulty of efficiently hand-coding parallelism, and the limitations of parallelizing compilers, have nonetheless restricted its use by...

CHAOSarc: kernel support for multiweight objects, invocations, and atomicity in real-time multiprocessor applications
Ahmed Gheith, Karsten Schwan
Pages: 33-72
DOI: 10.1145/151250.151252
CHAOSarc is an object-based multiprocessor operating system kernel that provides primitives with which programmers may easily construct objects of differing types and object invocations of differing semantics, targeting...

FLIP: an internetwork protocol for supporting distributed systems
Hans van Staveren, Andrew S. Tanenbaum, M. Frans Kaashoek, Robbert van Renesse
Pages: 73-106
DOI: 10.1145/151250.151253
Most modern network protocols give adequate support for traditional applications such as file transfer and remote login. Distributed applications, however, have different requirements (e.g., efficient at-most-once remote procedure call even in...
