A Survey of Synchronization Methods for Parallel Computers
July 1989 (vol. 22 no. 7)
pp. 66-77

An examination is given of how traditional synchronization methods influence the design of MIMD (multiple-instruction multiple-data-stream) multiprocessors. She provides an overview of MIMD multiprocessing and goes on to discuss semaphore-based implementations (Ultracomputers, Cedar, and the Sequent Balance/21000), monitor-based implementations (the HM/sup 2/p) and implementations based on message-passing (HEP, the BBN Butterfly and the Transputer).
