Atomic m-register operations

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


We investigate systems where it is possible to access several shared registers in one atomic step. Extending proofs in [Her91, LA87], we characterize those systems in which the consensus problem can be solved in the presence of faults and give bounds on the space required. We also describe a fast solution to the mutual exclusion problem using atomic m-register operations.
