Level of Study
Objectives and Content
The course introduces principles for programming secure, reliable and robust software in a multi-threaded or multi-process environment. Concurrent programming techniques are particularly central to the course, but related techniques such as event-driven programming may also be covered. The course combines a strong theoretical foundation with practical exercises.
After successfully completing the course, the students shall be able to:
- Write correct concurrent programs using multiple programming models, e.g., shared memory, message-passing, actors, futures, and data-parallelism primitives.
- Understand, relate and use synchronization primitives appropriately.
- Model a concurrent process using a formal method.
- Explain the potential run-time problems arising from the concurrent operation of many separate tasks.
