Concurrency Control and Recovery in Database Systems
by P. A. Bernstein, V. Hadzilacos, N. Goodman
Publisher: Addison Wesley 1987
Number of pages: 58
This book is about techniques for concurrency control and recovery. It covers techniques for centralized and distributed computer systems, and for single copy, multiversion, and replicated databases. These techniques were developed by researchers and system designers principally interested in transaction processing systems and database systems. Such systems must process a relatively high volume of short transactions for data processing. Example applications include electronic funds transfer, airline reservation, and order processing. The techniques are useful for other types of applications too, such as electronic switching and computer-aided design - indeed any application that requires atomicity and reliability of concurrently executing programs that access shared data.
