How to Make a Multiprocessor Computer That Correctly Executes Multiprocess Progranm
September 1979 (vol. 28 no. 9)
pp. 690-691
L. Lamport, Computer Science Laboratory, SRI International
Many large sequential computers execute operations in a different order than is specified by the program. A correct execution is achieved if the results produced are the same as would be produced by executing the program steps in order. For a multiprocessor computer, such a correct execution by each processor does not guarantee the correct execution of the entire program. Additional conditions are given which do guarantee that a computer correctly executes multiprocess programs.
Index Terms:
parallel processing, Computer design, concurrent computing, hardware correctness, multiprocessing
