Future research direction on lock-free algorithms RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello!

    I wanted to know what are the problems that are yet to be addressed in the area of lock free algorithms? or in lock free concurrent data structures?

  • generally worker threads only need a lock when they are using shared resources like a database which can only handle one at a time to preserve consistency

    how if each worker is working on a separate job then its possible no lock is needed but that is rare

    look up std::mutex and std::thread for more information on the C++11 and C++14 standard template library extentions
