Monitor classification
Peter A. Buhr, Michel Fortier, Michael H. Coffin
Pages: 63-107
DOI: 10.1145/214037.214100
One of the most natural, elegant, and efficient mechanisms for synchronization and communication, especially for systems with shared memory, is the monitor. Over the past twenty years many kinds of monitors have been proposed...

Fringe analysis revisited
Ricardo A. Baeza-Yates
Pages: 109-119
DOI: 10.1145/214037.214103
Fringe analysis is a technique used to study the average behavior of search trees. In this paper we survey the main results regarding this technique, and we improve a previous asymptotic theorem. At the same time, we present new developments and...

The scope and tutorial needs of the ACM SIGs

Pages: 121-137
DOI: 10.1145/214037.2815100
To encourage greater participation of ACM's Special Interest Groups in COMPUTING SURVEYS, each SIG was recently invited to describe briefly its scope and tutorial needs. Stu Zweben's introduction is followed by submissions from SIGACT, SIGART,...
