Sequential consistency versus linearizability
Hagit Attiya, Jennifer L. Welch
Pages: 91-122
DOI: 10.1145/176575.176576
The power of two well-known consistency conditions for shared-memory multiprocessors, sequential consistency and linearizability, is compared. The cost measure studied is the worst-case response time in...

Andrew Birrell, Charles Jerian, Timothy Mann, Andy Hisgen, Garret Swart
Pages: 123-164
DOI: 10.1145/176575.176577
