Brief Introduction to Software Transactional Memory (Intel)

In this module, rationale of TM will first be introduced, followed by an explanation of key concept of operating principles. The discussion focus will be on Software TM, the software implementation of TM, in which software support (compiler and libraries) and language extensions (key words) are illustrated with some code examples.
On the completion of this module, audience will understand why and how Transactional Memory works for concurrent programming with the basic knowledge of the language extension for Software Transactional Memory (STM). This will allow them to be able to try STM and decide on whether or not to use it for their applications.
