"Lec 22 - New Directions in Multiprocessor Synchronization" May 2, 2007 lecture by Maurice Herlihy for the Stanford University Computer Systems Colloquium (EE 380). Maurice talks about transactional memory, a computational model in which threads synchronize by optimistic, lock-free transactions -- this synchronization model promises to alleviate many of the problems associated with locking; the talk surveys the area, with a focus on open research problems.
