Nonblocking Algorithms for Multicore processors

Came across this awesome article on ACM Queue: http://queue.acm.org/detail.cfm?id=2492433. This is a very nice exposition of the topic with example code and detailed walk through of the effects of multiple access on shared state. The other interesting piece in this same context is of course transactional memory in Intel’s Haswell processor described here: http://www.realworldtech.com/haswell-tm/
