Nonblocking Algorithms for Multicore processors

Came across this awesome article on ACM Queue: http://queue.acm.org/detail.cfm?id=2492433.

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/
