MIT’s Introduction to Algorithms, Lectures 20 and 21: Parallel Algorithms - good coders code, great reuse

This is the thirteenth post in an article series about MIT’s lecture course “Introduction to Algorithms.” In this post I will review lectures twenty and twenty-one on parallel algorithms. These lectures cover the basics of multithreaded programming and multithreaded algorithms.
Concurrency Hazards: Solving 11 Likely Problems In Your Multithreaded Code
Solving 11 Likely Problems In Your Multithreaded Code
MSDN Library 2008/11 - Joe Duffy
Server-side programs have long had to deal with a fundamentally concurrent programming model, and as multicore processors become more commonplace, client-side programs will have to as well. Along with the addition of concurrency comes the responsibility for ensuring safety. In other words, programs must continue to achieve the same level of robustness and reliability in the face of large amounts of logical concurrency and ever-changing degrees of physical hardware parallelism.
