Coordinating Phased Activities while Maintaining Progress


In order to develop reliable applications for parallel machines, programming languages and systems need to provide for flexible parallel programming coordination techniques. Barriers, clocks and phasers constitute promising synchronisation mechanisms, but they exhibit intricate semantics and allow writing programs that can easily deadlock. We present an operational semantics and a type system for a fork/join programming model equipped with a flexible variant of phasers. Our proposal allows for a precise control over the maximum number of synchronisation steps each task can be ahead of others. A type system ensures that programs do not deadlock, even when they use multiple phasers.
